Great Lakes tall ship: Denis Sullivan
Once in a while you might catch sight of this tall ship called the Denis Sullivan on our Michigan lakes. This is the world's only replica of a traditional Great Lakes schooner. Ten years old now, it's actually a floating school, outfitted with computers and technology for studying ecological systems. It was recently seen in Bay City for their Tall Ship Festival. Today it is in Houghton, ready to set sail for Duluth. It can sleep 21 passengers on overnights! High School students can sail Aug 2-6 from Duluth to Sault Ste Marie with their Science Under Sail program. Ship ahoy!
