The Freshwater Whale Watching Society [FWWS] is committed to gathering and posting sightings of whales in Lake Superior. The anecdotal information is critical to research on freshwater whale migration and is used to assist the United States and Canadian Coast Guard with their commercial shipping and pleasure boating information efforts. We are dependent on your sightings, so send them in!

The Freshwater Whale Watching Society is a loosely organized group of people interested in freshwater whale migration, sightings, and amusing them selves. Therefore do not take any of this too seriously [see Are there really whales out there?]. 

The FWWS Lake Superior Chapter welcomes sighting reports and suggestions and we highly recommend you buy the first edition t-shirts.
