  • Presque Isle - Jan. 15 - Mooring Main Channel

Weather may impact the actual arrival of each ship.

Some will be berthed at Dobbins Landing.

Ice breaking is expected to begin as early as Wednesday in the eastern portion of Presque Isle Bay and east of Dobbins Landing, but all parts of the bay could be impacted by the work. People are asked to use extreme caution when accessing the bay, especially for recreational purposes.
