Boat Tours


Skimming the Surface


In the great blue that surrounds the Bruce Peninsula, you can lean over a boat and see a shipwreck. On a calm day, the underwater continuation of the Niagara Escarpment is visible. There are islands to explore, shores to cruise, and lighthouses to visit. Also from the water, you can see the coastal cliffs ablaze in the sunset.

C’mon aboard!

Tour Boats running out of Tobermory, Blue Heron Cruises, and the Bruce Anchor Cruises in Tobermory, both featuring highlights of Fathom Five National Marine Park. With glass-bottom boats and jet boats, they represent excursions to shipwrecks, around Flowerpot Island  and smaller islands in the park, and along the peninsula’s coast. They also provides water shuttle service to Flowerpot Island, where you can disembark and hike trails among cliffs and caves to namesake-shaped rock formations and the historic lighthouse. Reservations are suggested for both boat companies.

Fishing Island Boat Tours - You will have a chance to spot a bald eagle, look at a shipwreck, or watch kiteboarders skim across the lake. Boat tours depart from the Oliphant Marina or the Little Red Bay Marina near Evergreen and Wildwood Lodges daily. The Fishing Islands provide unparalleled natural beauty.

Another top Ontario boat tour is the cruise from Tobermory to Manitoulin Island aboard the M.S. Chi-Cheemaun Car Ferry – the largest passenger and car vessel on the Great Lakes. While best known for its ferry service, the Chi-Cheemaun also offers a Sunset Dinner Cruise on the last sailing of the day. It’s a romantic, gourmet experience with white linen and ever-changing scenery out the dining hall incased if glass windows.

Numerous other options further down the coast include the Chantry Island Boat Tour. It provides the only access to the protected island offshore of Southampton, site to the Chantry Island Lighthouse and internationally important bird sanctuary.
