“Eh, has lots of potential”

Maritime Center at Vantage Point
Ranked #4 of 28 things to do in Port Huron
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The Maritime Center has the potential to be really great. Instead, it is meh. Last time I was there, the under water camera was broken. They had a little coffee shop in there, but I understand it is now gone. It provides shelter for watching boats go by, at least.

If you are interested in a great place to watch the huge Great Lakes freighters and ore ships and even an occasional "salty" go by this is the place. Vantage Point at Port Huron sits on the banks of the St. Clair River right before the Bluewater Bridges thus giving you a very up close view of the big ships. There are outside seating and if the weather is in-climate you can sit inside and watch the ships and smaller vessels pass. There is a posted schedule of ships, and the people staffing the establishment are very helpful and friendly. There are other maritime displays, including a live underwater camera monitor, and food and drink is available. The colorful flags of the Great Lakes shipping companies is almost worth the trip itself. Whenever we are in the Port Huron area we make sure to visit Vantage Point.
