The Nanticoke arrived late Friday afternoon (above). It followed the American Integrity loading coal at Midwest Energy. Later today, the Nanticoke will depart the Twin Ports for Sydney, Nova Scotia, a port on the Atlantic Ocean. Today, we expect 3 boats to go under the Lift Bridge, all Canadian flagged. The Nanticoke will depart and both the Frontenac and the John B. Aird will be arriving.

Nanticoke here for grain

nanticoke220527-303
Many Canadian and US boats load coal here for Nanticoke, Ontario. Every once in a while, the Canadian flagged boat called Nanticoke comes to town, as it will today for only the second time this season. It will load grain at the Cargill elevator in Duluth. While working in the Great Lakes now, it is capable of ocean travel. In 1997, the Nanticoke worked the North Atlantic off the coast of Newfoundland. Photo taken May 27, 2002.

The Nanticoke comes to Duluth about 4 times a year, although this is the first trip this season. While working in the Great Lakes now, it is capable of ocean travel. In 1997, the Nanticoke worked the North Atlantic off the coast of Newfoundland and made no trips to the Twin Ports.
