  • The boat will take you for a 10 minute ride to the beautiful Island where you can walk around exploring the amazing formations, swim in crystal clear water and enjoy the vistas. Well worth it.  more »
  • What an amazing place. We rented out some kayaks and went paddling out to one of the shipwrecks in the area. The waters were so clear you could see right down to the wrecks. lots of tour boats in the ...  more »
  • On a boat tour to Flower Pot island we have can see 2 wrecks. I would come again in any case for an extra tour or scuba diving - last October not possible.

  • Amazing scenery here. We camped on Flowerpot island in May 2017 and it was fantastic. Beautiful history on display on the shore with the Flowerpot structures as well as in the interior trail. There is some steep rugged terrain in the inner trail. The shoreline walk is mostly flat. We were fortunate to have great weather during our stay.
  • Beautiful park around a cute town in Ontario. Fathom Five is known for its snorkeling and diving sites, few of which are close enough to shore that you don't need a boat. The water is beautiful, cold, but beautiful. All around one of my favourite places to visit.
  • Beautiful. Peaceful. Awesome. Breathtaking views. I'm still on vacation mode. I wanna go again. We couldn't find any place for a night. Everything is booked a month prior. You need at least 2 days to finish trails. I'll go again.
  • Flower pot island is stunning! The ferry ride there and back with Glass Floor tours was informative and breathtaking. Highly recommend a visit to flower pot island!
  • Beautiful. Get there early in the day if you want to head to the grotto. Don't be discouraged if you don't get into the park there are plenty of other great hikes in the area! Check out devils monument and flower pot island.

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.
