Gales of November

 Gales of November is the LSMMA's premier fundraising event for the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center. What began almost 30 years ago as a small gathering of divers sharing shipwreck pictures, has grown into a festive two-day educational, networking event.

The Gales features prominent speakers, exhibitors, silent auction, lunches, free Friday night gala and boatloads more.

Thank You to all who attended the Gales of November!  

Save the Date:  Next year's Gales will be on  November 1 and 2, 2019.
