Batchawana Bay is a bay within the north-eastern portion of Lake Superior. Due to the sun hitting its shallower crystal clear waters, Batchawana Bay is warmer in the summer months than the deep Lake Superior. In the winter, common to Lake Superior, is the upheavel of massive amounts of ice - where it is not rare to be over 15feet high.
The water on Batchawana Bay varies between calm and glistening smooth to extremely dangerous storms that result in the sinking of huge freighters such as the Edmund Fitzgerald! Once every 5-10 years, the waves are even surfable!
