First Ship Contest

The Port Authority hosts a First Ship Ceremony to welcome the earliest oce angoing vessel to call on Duluth-Superior at the start of each navigation season. Additionally, we partner with Visit Duluth on a "First Ship Contest." Entrants try to predict the specific day and time the bow of the first visiting "saltie" passes beneath the Duluth Aerial lift Bridge and into the harbor. The prize package includes luxurious accommodations, delicious meals and tickets to area attractions.
