Duluth-Superior Winter Harbor Aerial Tour



A flight around the Duluth-Superior Harbor this morning to check on the ice and the boats.  It was a good day to fly and a good day to be alive.

  1. Dennis this video is SPECTACULAR! The best video that you have ever posted. I will be watching it over and over. Loved that you included the Alder and the Sundew. And the Meteor too. Wow!

    1. The Ryerson is there tucked between two elevators in Superior. Hard to get a good photo of it there.

  11. Thank you Dennis, is that about the average number of boats that winter in the Twin Ports?

  14. GIves a good perspective of v the harbors that you can't get from the ground. I took a tour of the Ervin in 2016. Very interesting. Recommend it to anyone who has not taken it. A lot of climbing involved, but worth it. Very neat video, Dennis!

  16. Great video, Dennis. Thanks so much. Fun to see it all from a different perspective. And bittersweet to see the Ford and American Victory just sitting there. Does anyone know of the status for the Anderson? Missed seeing her out there this past season. Judy K.

  19. Arthur Anderson! Love!!! Could you hover longer over the Lee Tregurtha? :) Love from RI boatnerdgal

  20. My drone time was limited around the Lee Tregurtha due to security at Fraser Shipyard. I stay over water if I do not have permission and there wasn't anyone around at the time. I will try and get closer from a regular airplane tomorrow.

  21. As noted above by a couple other anonymous posters, loved seeing the Arthur M Anderson--so much history there, the last to see/contact the Fitz. According to the Duluth Shipping News website, there were no plans to send her out in the 2017-18 shipping season, after making 22 trips to Duluth the previous year (arrived for winter layup 1/15/17), waiting for business to pick up for the Great Lakes Fleet.

  22. Thank you, Den. It is wonderful to be able to see the boats in the various places in the harbor. I have never been to Duluth, but I am so happy I can watch the boats, etc. from your cameras.
