The tall ships are starting to dock at Mattson Lower Harbor Park in Marquette.
Five ships are coming to Marquette this weekend, and three are docked in the harbor.
People are already taking advantage of getting an up close look at these large vessels.
Deck tours of the Peacemaker, one of the larger ships, will be offered for a small fee on Saturday and Sunday.
Some of the ships will even be offering sailaways during the weekend for people to experience the large ships in Lake Superior.
All of the ships will be in town through Sunday.
