Visit Duluth and the Duluth Seaway Port Authority will team up again for the 2019 first ship contest.

Starting on March 1st you can go to to submit a guess when you think the season’s first ocean-going ship, or “saltie,” floats under the Aerial Lift Bridge.

Guesses must include a date and time, the first and second place winners will get a Duluth getaway, including lodging, gift cards to local restaurants, and passes to several attractions.

More than 2,500 people submitted entries last year. And to help you formulate a guess, the earliest ship ever to arrive was March 30th, 2013, and the latest to arrive was May 7th, 2014.

The first ship contest has been a thing since 1984. The first contest helped celebrate the 25th anniversary of the St. Lawrence Seaway.
