Tobermory, Ontario

Tobermory is located at the tip of the Bruce Peninsula, consisting of two harbours known as Little Tub and Big Tub. These harbours have been a haven for ships since the early Scottish immigrants arrived in the 19 th century. The harbours offered sanctuary from the strong autumn gales that sank so many vessels in the treacherous channel to the north. Georgian Bay;’s frigid waters have preserved the shipwrecks and the clarity of the water makes Tobermory a scuba divers mecca. Beneath the waters of Georgian Bay lie some of Canada’s oldest shipwrecks, many dating back to the mid 19 th century. Divers can also enjoy spectacular underwater geological formations. Underwater caves, rocky overhangs and ancient corals are also a part of Tobermory’s underwater experience.

The Fathom Five National Marine Park includes 19 nearby islands and protects 22 shipwrecks within its boundaries. Visitors can take a glass bottom boat ride to view the shipwrecks from the comfort of the deck. Those more energetic can disembark onto Flowerpot Island to explore the trails and the unusual stone formations.

The world famous Bruce Trail runs from Niagara Falls for more then 700 kms along the rugged Niagara escarpment and ends in Tobermory. The most scenic stretch of the Bruce Trail passes through the Bruce Peninsula National Park where hikers can experience breathtaking views from Overhanging Point, Cave Point, Halfway Log Dump or Halfway Rock Point.
