Sault Ste. Marie: St. Mary's River Professional Review and Guide
"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."
--Bill Newman, Sarah Ohmann, & Don Dimond, Guide to Sea Kayaking on Lakes Superior & Michigan (The Globe Pequot Press).
