Port of Thunder Bay

Thunder Bay cruises sail across Lake Superior on Great Lakes itineraries to call in this isolated Canadian city known as "the gateway to Ontario". Here, manifold outdoor adventures are on offer, as pristine wooded wilderness and more than 150,000 lakes, rivers and streams surround Thunder Bay. Beyond the city, waterfalls and gorges abound in the scenic Thunder Bay District.

Along the coast of Lake Superior, you'll find Thunder Bay's popular marina park area, where scenic promenades wind through well-kept parks. Cultural attractions like museums and art galleries are plentiful here, as well.
