Flowerpot Island Lighthouse, Tobermory

4.1
#2 of 9 in Historic Sites in Bruce County
Lighthouse Tourist Spot
Following a tough hike across the island, you'll be rewarded with the sight of Flowerpot Island Lighthouse, which sits on a rock platform just by the water’s edge. The cone-shaped lighthouse stands at roughly 30 m (98 ft) tall and features an almost all-white exterior, with the windows and railings painted in red. Take a seat on one of the benches found right beside the lighthouse and admire the view over Georgian Bay. If you’re brave enough, dip into the water, which is quite cold. Speak to volunteers who maintain the lighthouse to learn about its history, as well as that of the island. Make Flowerpot Island Lighthouse part of your personalized Tobermory itinerary using our Tobermory tourist route planner.

  • We visited the lighthouse and were delighted to see how they lived. The people (volunteers) that were there were helpful and informative.  more »
  • Very enjoyable visit to the house maintained by local volunteers. What loving and faithful dedication! Very informative too. The lighthouse part not as well handled.  more »
  • Dropped off there for 2 hrs. Great fun, lots of picture ops. Rock formations are cool. Fairly easy accesability, hiking and chance to play in the water. Busy place, still had a good time.  more »

  • Great spot to stop and see the view
  • Tobermory is such a magical place. We go every year, and stop at the lighthouse for a swim in the crystal clear waters. The sad thing though is that the water levels are going down so much in Georgian Bay.
