John G Munson arrives Duluth 01/20/2015

With the arrival of the John G Munson this morning, the shipping season has come to a close.

End of Shipping Season!

With the arrival of the John G Munson, the 2014-2014 shipping season has sadly come to a closed.

 While I will be posting the arrival video later today, I just want to thank everyone for all the wonderful support and conversation on this site.  In 2014 we added a lot of camera capabilities and hope 2015 will be better than ever viewing.

Although there were a lot of memorable harbor events in 2014, I thing the grounding of the Paul R Tregurtha is the most interesting.

Until the shipping season starts again in Mid-March, the cameras will keep rolling except for maybe some cold weather shut down or minor maintenance.

Hope you have enjoyed the harborcams as much as I have over the years, have a great time in winter lay-up and see you in the spring.

Whitefish Bay arrived Duluth 01/05/2015

Whitefish Bay arrived Duluth at noon Monday.

Notice: Camera Operation in Extreme Cold!

Just a heads up: while the next two weeks will present some beautiful scenes of ice covered boats, it is likely that the cameras will go into automatic shutdown mode for at least part of the day to protect internal circuitry. I will post images that I take, however, my camera doesn't like the extreme cold very much either. With the weather forecast for the week predicting nothing above zero, we'll do the best we can. Den
