Whitefish Point forms the entrance to Lake Superior's Whitefish Bay. Whitefish Bay funnels ships entering and leaving Lake Superior via the St. Mary's River at Sault Ste. Marie. The bay's geography concentrates both ships and migrating birds at Whitefish Point. The Great Lakes Shipwreck Museum located here grows and attracts more and more visitors. Birds flying along Lake Superior's shoreline come here to cross northeast from Whitefish Point into Canada. Being the northeastern tip of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Whitefish Point is a phenomenal concentration spot for migrating raptors, waterbirds, and song birds. The surrounding land and water features create a natural corridor, funneling thousands of birds directly to the Point each spring and fall as they travel thorough the Great Lakes region. This makes for spectacular bird-watching and provides tremendous opportunities to study and monitor bird populations.
