The Great Lakes Maritime Center (Maritime Center) offers a variety of opportunities to learn about the history and current events of the Great Lakes. Video formats, displays, and speaker programs present a wide range of information.
Inside the Maritime Center, you'll also meet "Freighter Frank" Frisk and his world headquarters for BoatNerd.com
. It is the most widely-used website for Great Lakes maritime information.
A live underwater camera (also inside) lets you view activity under the St. Clair River. Plus, a displayed schedule of ship travels - in actual time - is available. The Maritime Center is at the junction of the Black and St. Clair Rivers. You can watch giant freighters pass right in front of you - less than a quarter mile away. You can sit on a sun-soaked deck outside or - in the winter - watch from inside the Maritime Center.
