What Ship Is That?

When you gaze at the ocean from the beach or bluffs of Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, you often can spot large ships and smaller boats just offshore. Check out this Live Ships Map at MarineTraffic.com to see some of the shipping traffic that passes the San Mateo County coast.

Positional information is collected from transponders aboard vessels and used to help ships avoid collisions and give port authorities traffic control information. You can look up the traffic in other geographic areas on their web site as well.
