Ontario Lighthouse Tours



Visit Georgian Bay or Lake Huron Shoreline!


A history buff could tour for a week or more visiting all the lighthouses that dot the coast of Bruce County. From Point Clark on Lake Huron north to Tobermory and south along Georgian Bay to Cape Croker, there are 14 lighthouse and marine heritage sites. Built more than a century ago, some are still functioning, many have been restored; all have stories to share.

Visitors can take guided tours, climb to the top of the light tower, meander through adjacent museums, gardens and keepers’ homes. A few are accessible only by boat.
