Established in 2007, this is the largest freshwater marine protected area in the world. With over 1/3 of the world’s surface freshwater supply, the Great Lakes are a significant resource for the health of our planet. The area boasts many attractions related to geology and human and natural history. Aboriginal presence dates back at least 5,000 years and continues to this day.
Cruise the wild, remote region of the Great Lakes in this corner of paradise. More than 70 species of fish inhabit the near-pristine waters of Lake Superior, the largest of the Great Lakes. Watch gulls, herons, eagles and pelicans as they feed in these waters.
As many as 50 shipwrecks rest within the Lake Superior National Marine Conservation Area, attesting to the power of the greatest of the Great Lakes.
