Tug Zeus Manitou Passage NMI-7402

Tug Zeus pulls a freight barge northward past the Crib

Sometimes in order to make a photo come out the way you envision, you need to go to the location…. and wait. Wait for all the elements to line up just so, and possibly run in between two locations, such as the moments in between the top photo and the one above. The Manitou Passage offers endless photo ops, from above, at Pyramid Point overlook, or from the beach all along the shoreline. Also, pro tip: if you ever see a freighter or tug/barge and wonder what its name is, where it’s going, and other stats, check ais.boatnerd.com which is a live boat tracking website. Enjoy!
