Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary

GLIN Site of the Month Located in northwestern Lake Huron, Thunder Bay is adjacent to one of the most treacherous stretches of water within the Great Lakes system. Unpredictable weather, murky fog banks, sudden gales, and rocky shoals earned the area the name "Shipwreck Alley." Today, the 448-square-mile Thunder Bay National Marine Sanctuary protects one of America's best-preserved and historically significant collections of shipwrecks. The sanctuary fosters public awareness of its resources through scientific research, monitoring, exploration, education and outreach, working cooperatively with its many partners and the public to protect and manage the site.
