I'd love to know when that ship is making Wilmington DE again. It'd be cool to catch a video of it at the other end of it's journey. Wilmington is less than an hour away from here...

Sorry Jeff Millard you will never see it in Willmington DE ever. At 1004 feet (306m) its too large to travel through the Welland Canal that connects Lake Erie to the lowest lake, Lake Ontario. Probably another reason it was built in Lorain, Ohio.

There is a web site Boat Nerd that has a tracker map. Allows you to see ships realtime. I know it covers the Great Lakes, not sure about the ocean coast.

Great video - especially the close-up shots around the stern of the ship.  The sheer size of those monster vessels!   Thanks for the share.

I was worried about going around that stern, so many seagulls looking for a meal. The size is pretty unreal. Its impressive watching these ships navigate and dock. I know I'm impressed.

I think he first wave off to the side was to the people lining the canla and watching the ship entering the port. Second wave might have been at me. I did have the lights on. I think the drone is easily spotted among seagulls. The drone glides.... doesn't have that spastic flapping going on
