Silver Bay Marina

A Hideaway on the North Shore of Lake Superior
The Silver Bay Marina Cam views the tranquil harbor and docks for pleasure boats while also able to view the 1000 ft ore carriers entering North Shore Mining just to the east.

Boats up to 100' can be accommodated on a daily or seasonal basis in one of the 110 spacious slips.

  5. Dennis,
    Yet another reason to "tune in" from the confines of our home in Cedar Falls, IA! How on earth can you keep teasing us like this?

  9. Oh man! How can I get anything done when I am addicted to all these great webcams! LOL! I just checked the the Silver Bay cam just as it was panning and saw some great waves crashing. This will be a great addition. Thanks Den!!

    1. Sure as hell Mary,today 4/11/19, which should be one of the coolest days to checkout the cams to watch the storm and ALL the cams are down. Dennis needs to get some schooling on how to operate those things!!

    2. Most likely a wireless connection that does not work well in snow/rainy weather

    3. The cameras didn't appear to be down, they were taking a long time to load, or not loading. That makes me think the weather brought increased traffic that couldn't be supported. I was disappointed when I couldn't see, but I know running this isn't free, and appreciated when I could get through!

    1. sorry the north shoar of the lake is in canada the south shore in usa so how can silver bay be on the north shore ?????????????

      Delete
    2. The north shore extends from Duluth, Minn. up to Two Harbors, Silver Bay, Grand Marais, and just north of Grand Portage, (all in Minnesota) at which point it becomes Ontario, Canada, all the way to the locks at Sault Ste Marie. The south shore extends from Superior, Wis. to Port Wing, Bayfield, Washburn, all in Wisconsin, to the Michigan border in the Upper Peninsula and then to the locks at Sault Ste Marie. The north shore is in Minnesota and Ontario and the south shore is in Wisconsin and Michigan.

  22. I'm watching The American Century getting loaded in Silver Bay as I type this.I'm very curious as to why some of it has steam arising from it as it's being loaded and a question I really hope can be answered which is "how do they weigh and determine the amount of pellets being loaded on board"?? Thank you!

  23. How often does the Silver Bay cam go into pan mode? Think what you do here is great. Only problem I have is that I can't quit watching all that goes on. Thanks Dennis.

    1. Every 5 - 10 min, unless there is a boat coming or going.

  27. Love watching all of the cams on this site. One of these days I'm going to get to the Duluth area for a vacation to go sight seeing. Must a nice area in the summer but I don't think I can do winter there...

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sure would be nice to see the ore boats loading instead of staring at a bunch of empty boat docks!

    ReplyDelete
  29. finally moving. maybe the boland might be seen??

    ReplyDelete
  30. whomever works this cam must only like the marina. not the boat loading area. so why really have a cam if one can only see the marina most of the time. seeing the boats or the lake would be better than seeing the marina any day!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. here we go again!!!!! does anybody know where the boats load, or is this camera specifically for the marina!!!! please whomever operates this cam use its capabilities and move it more. there is more than just the marina here. the boats do show up here as well!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. okfine I'm not sure I've heard as much complaining from anyone over a service that costs you nothing. Stop your complaining you whiner and enjoy the cams like everyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sitting here, watching the waves and laughing at myself. Looking toward the ore dock, there's a post in the center of the picture. I realized I was moving my head, trying to see around it. Lol, guess I need to make a road trip to experience the real thing. Thanks for providing the cams!

  34. ok mr or mrs anonymous. do not tell me to stop whining. i like utilizing the cameras also but prefer watching the big boats not a marina. that is my opinion. i did not complain about you so do not tell me what to do or say. are you the boss????? again that is my right free or pay, to put my opinion out there. hey buddy ever hear of freedom of speech. and also you do not know me so DO NOT accuse of something you do not know about!!!!!!

    1. I appreciate you opinion. I am often not available to turn the camera when a boat is arriving, so, my hope is that by auto panning the cam, we can see the big boats some of the time. Thanks, Den

    2. Duluth and Two Harbors cams are where the freighter activity is more easily seen . Sault St Marie locks are another good location .

      Delete
    3. Lots of boats on the following cams: Port Huron, MIchigan/Sarnia, Ontario; Marine City, Michigan; Algonac, Michigan. The Port Huron location has a cam ops It is at the southern end of Lake Huron and is the headwaters of the St. Clair river which flows into Lake St Clair and then to Lake Erie. Marine City has a cam ops which is excellent; lots of close up views with cam op comments about the boat/tug you are watching. Algonac is pretty much a pan of the ferry going between the U. S. and Canada but there is also some laker and saltie traffic. Search for StreamTime Live. The neat thing is that by use of the Marine Traffic link you can follow the boats that are upbound to Duluth/Superior/Two Harbors/Silver Bay and, of course, the downbound traffic as well.

    4. hahaha I love how this okfine person goes on a major whine when asked to stop whining. Love the cams just as they are, don't change a thing.

  35. Thanks for the cams views! I lived in Duluth 3 years and took images for Lake Superior Magazine Issue back in Spring 1991. I don't miss the frigid Winters though. LOve the North Shore. Rory in Indiana

  37. to mr dennis ohara. thanks for the explanation regarding the silver bay cam. my prior post was directed to mr or mrs anonymous and the commentary posted towards me. i have respect for people. but if you disrespect me i will respond in kind especially if i was not directing my commentary towards them, of which i wasnt. so i would expect the same kind of common courtesy towards me as i would towards them. mr or mrs anonymous unless you want the same commentary back to you do not call people names if you do not know them. remember folks as you state enjoy the cams and avoid the personal commentary.

  38. The SB boat docks are some real money makers aren't they? I'll be excited when there are at least 25 boats docked there.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Cam stares at the inner end of the marina for almost 10 minutes and then scans right by an ore freighter inbound. Think the vast majority of people want to look at the freighters, not an empty marina.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I would really like to know as a boat owner in Silver Bay how you would like it if I sat in front of your house and took a video of you and your family then posted it on line, this is what you are doing to the people that pay to have a slip in this marina, when you can zoom in on people enjoying their time off.

    1. Sorry you feel that way, I will make sure the camera isn't zoomed and that you and others are able to use the camera to check the weather and waves from home.

      Delete
    2. 1. there is no zoom option
      2. my home is on my private property, your boat is in the public marina so your comparison is disingenuous at best.
      The cams are a wonderful public service.

      Delete
  41. As the camera scans we get about a 40 second look at an inbound freighter. But then the camera will stop for about 10 minutes to look at docked pleasure craft who no one cares to look at.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I check the cam several times a day and have never noticed them "zooming in" on a particular boat. There are not many boats loading but I enjoy looking at the entire area as well as the beautiful sailboats and cruisers.

  43. June 18 - 1405 - PDT - I just watched this camera scan several times I like it seeing about a 180 degree view?

  44. I see a weather station like Denny has at the Duluth piers.

    I looked on the marina website:

    and found a link at the top of the page to that weather station:

  48. This webcam remains my goto source for real-time info about lake safety conditions and storm waves. Plus, when it's not violently dramatic, it's breathtakingly beautiful. Thank you for providing it!

  51. This cam seems to be "stop" and "start". It is not streaming well. FYI.

  52. I seem to be having trouble with poor steaming also.

  53. Looks like someone has taken control of the cam and locked up! Not panning now!
