  • This was my 3rd tour of the Wm Irvin and each time I learn something new. You absolutely get the feel of working on a Great Lakes ore boat because the tour pretty much cover the whole boat. My favorite part is going down into the hull where the iron ore was carried.
  • I was there when I was a kid great Tour
  • It wasn't open when we got there but will visit again 😊
