Thunder Bay's English translation comes from the French Anse Du Tonnerre, meaning Thunder Cove, appearing on their maps as early as the late 1600s. The name most likely comes from the Native belief that the area was prone to thunderstorms.

Over 100 of these wrecks are available for viewing via kayak, snorkeling, or scuba diving.
