All of the Great Lakes shipping that is upbound for Lake Superior or downbound from the lake must pass through the Sault Locks. This makes Sault Ste. Marie a great place for boat watching as the huge ships pass down the relatively narrow St. Mary’s River. The Canadian Sault is also a place of huge contrasts, from the industrial waterfront of Algoma Steel to the wildlife found in a maze of islands, bays, channels, and marshes just a stone’s throw away. The following route provides a sample of both urban waterfront and wildlife, as well as the opportunity to lock through the historic locks on the Canadian side of the river.
