STUCK IN CORONAVIRUS LOCKDOWN? MAKE PLANS TO VISIT CANADA’S SHIPWRECK CAPITAL THIS SUMMER
So I love the water. And right now, with the Coronavirus lockdown in effect, I love it even more. But I can’t go out and swim, or travel somewhere new to have some fun exploration, either. But I can certainly look online and start making plans for when I can. And I realized that Lake Huron in Canada just might be a major winner this coming summer. Well, if we’re allowed to travel by then, anyway. But Lake Huron is known as the Shipwreck Capital of Canada. With good reason! But yes, it is a Great Lake. So that means it’s big.
YOU CAN EASILY EXPLORE 20 SHIPWRECKS AT ONTARIO’S FATHOM FIVE NATIONAL MARINE PARK
So how big? Well, Lake Huron covers about 45,000 square miles. So yes, it’s pretty damn big. But you don’t have to grab a canoe and try to get lucky finding a shipwreck. Well, you could, I suppose. Or, you could simply go to the Fathom Five National Marine Park. You can easily make your visit and see a number of shipwrecks up close and personal. Sure, we know there have been over 1,000 shipwrecks in the Great Lake Huron. Well, ones that people reported, anyway.
MAKE PLANS NOW TO SPLASH AWAY YOUR LOCKDOWN BLUES WITH LAKE HURON SHIPWRECK ADVENTURE
But regardless, the Fathom Five National Marine Park is easy to get to. It’s in the province of Ontario, which is nice and easy to find on a map. And if you’re under 30, well, just use the cut and paste on Google Maps, then decide when you want to go on Kayak or the like. And speaking of Kayaks, you can do that on Lake Huron, too. But not before you visit as many as 20 shipwrecks at the national marine park! Yes, 20. You can snorkel, scuba or even free dive if that’s your pleasure. And don’t forget your underwater camera! So plan ahead while you’re all cooped up.
This lockdown won’t last forever….
