Best Boatwatching Sites

Boat watching is an acquired hobby.  Spend any time in a good boat watching area are you will be hooked.   Boat watching in our area is observing the passage of boats through the Great Lakes water system.  This includes freighters and 'salties' which are ocean-going vessels from around the world.

You can become a boat watcher at any phase in your life.  Boat watching can begin in childhood or at any time after that when you have the opportunity to sit and see the peaceful movement of these giant haulers of freight.

The question is where is the best spot to watch boats in the Sault Ste. Marie area.  I've posted several options before but just this week learned a new one.  I received an email from a business owner south of the Soo.  I am going to post his answer to my question about the best boat watching spot in our area.  Hopefully, I get an opportunity to meet these boat watchers and enjoy their vantage point.

Sault Boat Watcher,

I found one of your blogs.

“Now I want to hear from you. What do you think is the best boat watching spot in the Sault? I'd like to learn a few new ones for this summer.”

Here is a picture from our docks at Riverview Resort and Marina.  Riverview Resort and Marina is located in Barbeau half way between DeTour and Sault Ste. Marie. Only about twenty miles from Sault Ste. Marie. We are located on the west side of Neebish Island and the south bound shipping channel of the St. Mary’s River. Hope you enjoy the picture and come visit us some time.  
Very respectfully,
Timothy and Melissa Hoover
