Explore the Blue: 360° Lake Ontario Schooner St. Peter

NOAA is proposing to designate a national marine sanctuary in eastern Lake Ontario and the Thousand Islands region of the St. Lawrence River to celebrate the area's unique history and heritage and provide a national stage for promoting tourism and recreation.

One of the Proposed Lake Ontario National Marine Sanctuary's most impressive recreationally accessible shipwrecks, St. Peter, is located northeast of Putneyville. This 135-foot, three-masted schooner rests upright in 117 feet of water. Learn about the history of the schooner and the battle with 70 mph winds in this Sanctuaries 360 video!

NOAA is accepting public input on the draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) and management plan through electronic submissions until Sept. 10, 2021, and will also record input from two in-person and two virtual meetings.
