Also within Fathom Five National Park are the many islands including
Flower Pot Island.
Charter a zodiac ride over for a fast ferry from Little Tub (a
favourite memory of my childrens!).
It is also where you can pick up the Tobermory ferry to Manitoulin
Island, the MS Chi-cheemaun. You can drive your car directly
onto the ferry to tour around the largest fresh water island in the
Tobermory is a favourite harbour for sail boats and power boats alike
and wandering the Tobermory marina you are just as likely to find
luxury yachts as retired fishing boats chartering scuba divers.
On one of our many visits to Tobermory in the late 80's with my
children we chartered a sail boat down the shore to Cabot Head and
Wingfield Basin which we would highly recommend to anyone.
If you are planning on staying for more than just the day there is
plenty of Tobermory accomodation options.
If you are going to Tobermory camping there are options right in town
that include Lands End Park, Tobermory Village Campground and Happy
Hearts Tents & Trailer. If you are more adventurous try out the
campsites on the islands off the Tobermory coast. But book in advance as there are limited spots available.
For the less rugged there are of course Tobermory hotels and cottage
rentals. For a small town that is remote enough for most businesses to
only operate during the peak cottaging months of May to October it is
surprising how many motel and hotel options there are in Tobermory.
Noteable mentions are the Big Tub Harbour Resort & Restaurant
and The Grandview Motel (the restaurant overlooks Georgian Bay
& has a great hot chocolate).
Tobermory Ontario is somewhere that I keep going back to and a summer
isn't complete without at least a day trip up the Bruce and a walk
around Little Tub Harbour.
