  • So beautiful, so lucky to have this place in Ontario. A gorgeous freshwater harbour, built around tourism and the ability to see to fantastic depths underwater. There are wrecks close-in, in the harbour to dive or snorkel on, and glass-bottom boat tours to see more, and the car-ferry, Chichiman will take you across the big water to Manitoulin Island, and if the magic of these names can't get you off the couch, nothing will!! You gotta see this. Lots of B&B's, hotels and cabins to rent, but start early. Lots of trails to hike on the Bruce Peninsula, and wonders to see. Named for the poem by Shakespeare, we have the only one .
  • You haven't experienced Ontario if you haven't been here. Super inspiring. Worth getting a scuba license for. Been to Flowerpot, and would love to check out the other islands someday.
  • 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.
  • The most beautiful place I've been to, water is nice and clear and the people are very friendly. I took my daughter here for a couple of days and we loved it. We are definitely going back next year.
  • Fathom five's flowerpot island is an amazing island with clear blue water and a scenic hike alongside the shore, with places to explore such as a cave and the flower pot rocks themselves. It's a great outdoor experience. Definitely worth checking out in the summer.

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.
