Channel Shipping - Live!
Thanks to the Marine Traffic Project it's possible to see the state of shipping around the world.
The map below shows vessels currently in the English Channel and tracks them in real time *.
  • Use your mouse scroll button (or the +/- slider at the top left of the map) to zoom in and out.
  • Hover over a particular ship to display its name, speed and course.
  • Click on the ship for more information.
  • Change the area covered on the map by moving the hand icon (or with the "compass" at the top left of the map).
  • The map refreshes automatically. The number of seconds to the next refresh is shown at the bottom of the map.
    * NB: Vessel positions may be up to one hour old or incomplete.
