Nice quick crossing from Michigan to Canada and back the next day. 5 minute wait going to Canada, 15 minutes returning. Friendly agents, in my opinion. Good , easy experience.

I have trouble with heights. It is a beuatiful bridge and I know it's well build because we have been over it many times. But it is still high :) The people at the booths are very nice and friendly.

I like this crossing so much better than Windsor/Detroit. Less busy (check internet for wait times). So much easier to get on the right hwy or go into Port Huron after crossing. Trucks can block entrance ramps on Canada side if you enter at Front...More

It held us up as we went over. The Customs staff was polite and efficient, the toll is reasonable, and it looks nice.

It's funny that the Blue Water Bridge is the number one thing to do in Port Huron because the only reason anyone would ever come to Port Huron is to cross this bridge to get to Canada. The fact that this bridge IS the number...More

Great photo opportunities from both sides of the river, in all kinds of weather. Best view from the bridge is the East-West crossing as cars are in the outside lane. Of course no stopping or slowing for photos from the bridge. Safe travel is mandatory.

No cost for anything, plus free parking nearby, and plenty of great breezes. Michigan is a wonderful state when it comes to free (or low cost) outdoor recreation. I am biased. One side of my family is from this area but I... More
