Flowerpot Island, Tobermory

4.7
#2 of 17 in Parks in Bruce County
Island Nature / Park
Explore the fascinating Flowerpot Island, accessible only by boat, and discover one of Canada’s most impressive natural beauties. The island takes its name from the two rock pillars located on the eastern shore, which resemble flower pots and even have trees growing out of the top of the stacks. Spend your time on the island admiring the rock formations, hiking the trails on offer, exploring caves, or swimming in the cool bays. The beaches on the island aren’t sandy, so bring appropriate footwear. If you want to stay overnight, take advantage of one of the six campsites on the island. However, make sure you call in advance to reserve your space. Bring plenty of water for the duration of your stay, as there is no tap water on the island. Flowerpot Island is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Tobermory Edition.

  • Hiking here is fun. The sights are really beautiful. Wear comfortable shoes. I did not expect much but I was very happy with my visit here.  more »
  • Very nice place, the boat tour is very nice for if make. We tried 2 boats offer by Blue Heron cruises and we preferred the jet boat, as it goes faster. The place is beautiful, despite the fact that there's a lot of people. There was a renovation when we went there, we could not see the cave nor the lighthouse, but the flower pots are amazing.

  • Flowerpot Island was an amazing spot to see while in Tobermory. It was so beautiful, busy but once you got further in it was quite peaceful. Great options for picnicking and swimming.  more »
