  • What a great time we had hiking at the Bruce in September. The terrain was quite rough and slippery and the elevations go up and down quite rapidly so I would recommend good boots with Ankle support. ...  more »

  • Very cool place. Beware of Bear and rather snakes. Glass bottom boats tours, whispering winds park, downtown Tober Moray are very cool. To see a bear, go to the local garbage dump at dusk. Canada is odd in that you cannot buy beer and liquor in the same store or even a grocery store. But I love this place
  • Beautiful even in late October when its colder and overcast. Great hike. The Grotto is rough terrain so wear good footwear and mind the ledges.
  • Incredible natural wonder! The crystal clear water in the cave is illuminated by a cave window letting in light from Georgian Bay! If you have a snorkel mask, bring it! The views under the water are even more spectacular!
  • Extremely popular for a reason, totally a must see. Lots of people turned away everyday as the parking lot quickly reaches capacity. New permit system in place, free, just get to the park office early to get your parking permit. 30 minute hike from parking lot to Grotto, trail is easy and we'll maintained. Bathrooms available at Grotto. Water is cold, as it's so deep, but the views are stunning. Grotto itself is a cave, with an underwater tunnel out to the bay. Getting down to the cave isn't for everyone, water can also be rough. There are lots of great views, trails, rock beaches, and beautiful sites to along the shore. Water shoes are a great idea.
  • Great place to visit during the summer. The grotto is only about a 1.5km walk from parking lot one. Other trails as well that vary in length.

Where to stay in Tobermory

You can stay in the town center for convenience, but you might find the constant coming and going of cruise ships irritating. For something more relaxing, look for a guesthouse or bed and breakfast at the northern tip of the peninsula, next to Fathom Five National Marine Park. Reserving in advance is essential between May and September, as tourists flock to Tobermory to make the most of the warmer weather.
