Get Thunderstruck by Natural History at Thunder Bay

The only National Marine Sanctuary found in the Great Lakes, Thunder Bay is chock-full of archaeological history. Commence exploration:

The cold, fresh water of Lake Huron makes it ideal for preserving the historic shipwrecks that are part of the Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary. Superintendent Jeff Gray says that although the monuments and sights might be under water, there’s plenty to see!

“We really work hard to encourage people to get out in the sanctuary and experience some of these magnificently preserved shipwrecks,” he says.
And you can do that through diving, kayaking, snorkeling, and we even have a glass bottom boat now that takes people out and they can go see a shipwreck without getting wet.”

There are over two dozen documented shipwrecks that can be explored – making Thunder Bay perfect for anyone wanting to experience this national treasure.
