Tobermory, Ontario Canada
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 glass-bottomed tour boats that leave Little Tub Harbour 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.
Flowerpot Island, with its light station, is part of the national park and tour boats travel to the island on a daily basis. Hike the island's trails and view the sea stacks and the flowerpots for which the island is named.
