Area Info

Part of Bruce County Ontario, Tobermory can be reached by following Hwy 6 North until it reaches the sparkling waters of Georgian Bay.

Known as the “scuba diving capital” of Canada, Tobermory is blessed with two harbours”Little Tub” and “Big Tub”, a lighthouse, a unique downtown area that wraps around Little Tub Harbour, and is the home port of the car ferry, the ChiCheemaun during the sailing season. Over 20 shipwrecks in Fathom Five National Marine Park are a magnet for divers; non-divers can view the wrecks from OUR glass-bottomed tour boats that head out to Flowerpot Island several times a day. The Cove Island lighthouse can be viewed from the water on the tours or from the ChiCheemaun.

Little Tub is the commercial hub of Tobermory. The quaint downtown hugs the harbour, making for an easy stroll to the village’s specialty shops and restaurants, in a picturesque setting.

Big Tub is one of the deepest freshwater harbours in North America. Two of Tobermory divers’ most popular shipwrecks are located at its shallow end.

Nearby attractions include the St. Edmund’s Museum, the Bruce Peninsula National Park, the Bruce Trail (which ends in Tobermory), and a nine-hole golf course with mini-golf for the kids.
