A new Maritime Mile Treasure Trail has been launched in Belfast Harbour bringing an exciting outdoor family experience aimed at encouraging locals and visitors to explore the city port's historic waterfront.

The joint initiative is between the Titanic Foundation and Belfast Harbour where the trail provides a waterfront experience for visitors to explore Belfast’s maritime & industrial heritage.

Titanic Foundation, the charity set up to preserve and promote Belfast’s maritime and industrial heritage including the development of Titanic Belfast, collaborated with Belfast Harbour on the trail. It was developed as part of the Foundation’s commitment to the development and promotion of Belfast’s iconic heritage waterfront as a seamless, accessible and vibrant destination for local people and visitors.

The treasure trail, which is available now until 6th November, is free!

There are 18 stops along Belfast’s iconic waterfront with questions, clues, facts and challenges all of which can be easily found on a series of information panels along the self-guided route.

There will be weekly prize draws as well as a main prize draw of a specially commissioned Maritime Mile painting by local artist and former Harland & Wolff employee Colin H. Davidson. There’s also a mini explorers version of the trail, with prizes also available. Everyone who completes the experience will get their very own Maritime Mile certificate.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
