The Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce

The Blue Water Area Chamber extends a warm welcome to our cool community

Welcome to the Blue Water area, where roots run as deep as the waters it borders and as wide as the binational area it serves.  The Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce represents the cities of Port Huron and Marysville, and townships of Fort Gratiot, Kimball and Port Huron, all nestled along the beautiful blue St. Clair River and Lake Huron.

Whether you're moving your family or business here, the chamber will connect you quickly

The Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce, a two-time award winning chamber established in Port Huron, Michigan in 1917, spearheads business advocacy, education, and assistance.  The chamber distributes hundreds of relocation packets annually, and its business and community information resource center is located in the hub of the downtown business district.  The center provides business brochures, catalogs, business cards, publications, event flyers, directories, maps and a tourist kiosk.  The chamber directory will connect you with preferred businesses in the community, and if you have a business here, its the right choice for networking.  The chamber provides three opportunities a month for networking - two formal networking meetings and a business after hours mixer - all included with your membership. 

From its sparkling blue boundaries, to its blueprints for growth, the members of the Blue Water Area Chamber of Commerce continue to make their mark on our community's history.  Come, join us!

We are proud members of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Our Community

Sixty miles north of Detroit, Port Huron is the seat of St. Clair County. St. Clair County is known as the Blue Water Area because its eastern and southern boundaries are formed by the waters of Lake Huron, the St. Clair River, and Lake St. Clair. The St. Clair River forms the natural boundary between the United States and Canada. The river flows along the southern part of the city until it reaches the twin Blue Water Bridges under which is the mouth of Lake Huron.

The bridges link Port Huron to Sarnia, Ontario making this beautiful community unique. These magnificent side-by-side spans offer unlimited opportunities for international trade, commerce and recreation. The view is pretty incredible, too! The huge freighters from all over the world that make their way through the river and under the bridges are a breath-taking sight. More freighter payload passes under the Blue Water Bridges than flows through the Suez and Panama Canals combined. From personal watercraft to 1,100-ft freighters, the water makes Port Huron a very special place, indeed.
