Careers & Education
Over 10,000 people of all ages voyage through our Maritime Education program every year.
There are 25,000 miles of inland river system used for transportation in the United States. Just like trucks are transporting goods on the highways and trains are transporting goods on the rail system, towboats pushing barges are transporting goods on this “highway of water.” Products can leave the Tulsa Port of Catoosa on the waterway and be shipped anywhere in the world!
Check out our Wonders of the Waterway Activity Book to learn about the Tulsa Ports, the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System and the transportation of goods. We hope you enjoy the activities in this book, and we also hope you enjoy learning about the wonders of the waterway!
Simply reading about the Tulsa Port of Catoosa doesn’t do this economic engine justice. You have to see it to believe it.
The Maritime Education Center is a free exhibit that helps visitors learn about the Port’s history and economic impact on Oklahoma.
The Maritime Education Center is a one-stop shop to learn about the 25,000 miles of water in the United States used for transportation, the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System, and the Tulsa Port of Catoosa.
