This trip, we focus on craft breweries, shipwrecks, and sightseeing along the way.
Enjoy the incredible views as you drive along the Georgian Bay, take in the natural wonders, sip delicious craft beer and cider, finally, see some interesting shipwrecks!
Plan at least 5 days to see all the major attractions – 6 if you want to see the Grotto.
Tobermory is extremely busy come mid-June and through the end of summer – expect a two hour, bumper to bumper wait just to reach this destination during the high season. Make reservations before traveling, don’t count on vacancies.
Wear proper gear, pay attention and stay on the trail – these are extremely fragile ecosystems that you will be visiting!
We recommend taking a Sunset Cruise in Tobermory, that takes you along the Georgian Shores and returns as the sun is setting – it’s a boat tour not to be missed.
The Flower Pot Island Tour – whether you opt to walk on the island or not – provides incredible views of the geological formations. Look for the cruise that takes you into Big Tub Harbour to see the shipwrecks before cruising to the island.
The Grotto is an extremely popular attraction. Camping spots fill quickly, as does the parking so if you don’t arrive early, not only will you wait in line, but you will be turned away. The Blue Heron sunset cruise will give you a different view of the swimming hole and cave – an option we highly recommend.
Lion’s Head Preserve is a beautiful and challenging hike. Explorers should take care – just as there are chimney formations in the stone above as you travel, but there are also chimnies in the stone ground. Take care to ensure everyone’s safety.
