Grand Traverse Bay

 Grand Traverse Bay is located off Lake Michigan in Northern Michigan.  The bay is 32 miles long, 10 miles (wide, and up to 600 feet deep in  spots. It is divided into two arms by the Old Mission Peninsula.  Traverse City is situated at the south end of the bay where the Boardman River empties into the west arm. Cherry orchards line the bay region, giving  rise to Traverse City's claim to be the Cherry Capital of the World.  Northport Bay, located at the northwest corner of Grand Traverse Bay is  about 10 miles long and 4 miles wide. The Grand Traverse Bay includes  several important smaller bays: Northport Bay, Suttons Bay, Omena Bay,  Bowers Harbor, and Old Mission Bay. Northport Bay open to the east,  except inside the arms at each end, with the Leelanau Peninsula on the  West side. There are several shoals in Northport Bay marked by buoys.  Bellows Island, a low gravel island covered by shrubs and located near  the middle of Northport Bay, is owned by the Nature Conservancy; it is  primarily known as a bird rookery, and is sometimes locally called Gull  Island.
