Today, we’ll transit the Soo Locks from Lake Huron into Lake Superior at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. Located at the mouth of the St. Mary's River, these four parallel locks — MacArthur (constructed in 1943), Poe (1895), Davis (1914), and Sabin (1919) —pass an impressive average of 10,000 ships each year.
Our ship will dock on the Canadian side of the river at Roberta Bondar Place, named for Canada’s first female astronaut, where you’ll have your choice of adventures visiting attractions on either side of the Locks. Explore the lifestyle and heritage of sailors with a visit to the unique Valley Camp Museum Ship followed by a stop on the Soo Locks viewing platform on the U.S. side, or engage in the region’s history as you tour the Bush Plane Museum and the Ermatinger- Clergue National Historic Site on the Canadian side.
