Ships that wreck in shallow water tend to break apart due to the force of wind, waves, and ice. Many wrecks dot the shoreline of Thunder Bay, providing great opportunities for snorkeling, kayaking, and recreational diving. Pictured here are the remains of the 1840s sidewheel steamer New Orleans, one of the oldest known wrecks in the sanctuary.
