Welcome to the bathtub of Superior
Batchawana Bay is a small bay on the eastern shore of Lake Superior, approximately 50 kilometres (31 mi) north of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada.
Batchawana Bay was termed Badjiwanung by the Ojibwe, referring to water that bubbles up. This occurs between Batchawana Island and Sand Point, where the lake narrows and a strong current and undertow results. The Ojibwebelieved this was caused by an underwater spirit about to surface.
