Make a voyage to the William A. Irvin
In the heart of Canal Park, set against the majestic Aerial Lift Bridge, is a Great Lakes vessel you can’t miss—and won’t want to. Despite carrying iron ore and coal for 40 years through treacherous storms, the William A. Irvin remains in pristine condition today. Don’t miss your chance to tour the proud flagship of U.S. Steel’s Great Lakes Fleet. Schedule a group visit, get ticketing information or discover its rich history.
We went there on 5 dollars Tuesday (normally $12) The tour takes you for an hour from midship to back and to the front of the bridge. You have to climb and descend about 18 steep ship stair ways so be prepared. Here is a little impression of this tour.
