Why are there so many shipwrecks in this area?

Posted on

Grand Island offers the only protection from the open water of Lake Superior. When storms would arise, ships would and still seek shelter in Munising Bay. Getting to the safety was a huge challenge with old navigation techniques, rock reefs and sand bars that seem to come out of nowhere. There are 73 Shipwrecks that have been found in the area of Grand Island and Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. There are many more that are still missing.
