Algoma Harbor

Algoma’s commercial and sportfishing fleets have long harbored in the mouth of the Ahnapee River. The boat traffic along the lakefront is picturesque, as is a stroll along the city’s breakwater. The red steel lighthouse on the north breakwater pier is a Great Lakes icon. The harbor area is usually a clatter of gulls, particularly when the fishing tugs return with a catch of whitefish or chubs. Grebes and teal can also be seen on the wing above the harbor. Walk the sandy beaches south of town for more avian adventures.

Directions: Hwy 42 in downtown Algoma.
