Great Lakes Maritime Center
The Great Lakes Maritime Center (GLMC), situated at the junction of the Black River and St. Clair River, is a great spot to view the river traffic including huge ocean freighters, pleasure boats and sail boats. Watch the ships gracefully pass by from the sun-soaked deck or warm and dry viewing room. Find maritime artifacts and a variety of opportunities to learn about the history and current events of the Great Lakes. A variety of video formats, displays and speaker programs present a wide variety of information. A live underwater camera feed lets you view activity under the surface of the St. Clair River; and a live display of ship movements can be viewed. On site you will find the World Headquarters of BoatNerd.com, the most widely used website for Great Lakes maritime information. Have a fresh cup of coffee or hot chocolate with a fresh-baked donut, cup of soup, or sandwich at the Waterfront Deli. Or step outside to the Mama Vickie's Coney Island French Fries Truck and have some delicious fries, prepared before your eyes from freshly cut potatoes, or a hand-dipped ice cream cone from the Mackinac Island Creamery. Open daily except holidays, check website for times open.
