The 8th Wonder of Canada

Where water and land meet sky. With its 1,000-year old pines and pristine turquoise waters, you’ll see why it’s the 8th Wonder of Canada. Fathom Five National Marine Park is famous for its scuba diving. Take a glass-bottomed boat to Flowerpot Island or rent a SUP and explore the coastline. On land, delight in the numerous culinary options. Comb the village galleries and shops for treasures. Your first impression is breathtaking. Your last is unforgettable.

Things to Do

Scuba diving capital of Canada, Fathom Five National Marine Park is home to 22 shipwrecks – many dating back to the mid-1800s. Or view them through glass bottoms boats with Blue Heron Cruises or Bruce Anchor Cruises on your way to Flowerpot Island.

Launch your own SUP adventure with rented gear from Thorncrest Outfitters or join Fathom Paddle Guiding to view the historic Big Tub Lighthouse and shipwrecks at your own speed.

Shopping

Tobermory is a fun, bright and flavourful marine community with art galleries, scrumptious treats and nautical antiques.

Watch the magic happen at The Sweet Shop: where fine confections are created the old fashioned way. Unearth fine art pieces at Circle Arts that are uniquely Bruce Peninsula and crafted by Canada’s finest artists. The Mariner Chart Shop, along the dock, is a must visit, full of clothing and gifts.

Eating in Tobermory

Live music, a wood fired pizza oven and stunning views over Georgian Bay contribute to the delicious experience that awaits you at Tubby’s Lounge and Gastropub. Tucked away in the Cornerstone Golf Club clubhouse, the Ancient Cedars Cafe features a menu to suit everyone’s desires; vegan, gluten-free or complete carnivore options. End your day sipping a Bruce Trail Blonde Ale or Fathom Five Porter at the Tobermory Brewing Company and Grill.

Places to stay in Tobermory

Walk to your slumbering place at Blue Bay Motel in the heart of Tobermory overlooking Big Tub Harbour on Georgian Bay or for a secluded stay, watch the sunset at Gales Haven Bed & Breakfast on Lake Huron. Even though you are at the tip of the Peninsula, have no fear… free Wi-Fi is available.
