Be sure to plan ahead before visiting this fall, as many operators are running at reduced capacity or are closed for the season due to COVID-19.  When in BruceGreySimcoe, follow social distancing protocols, wear a mask and wash your hands frequently.

Quaint and pretty, this tiny gem is located at the very tip of the Bruce Peninsula.  And, although small, Tobermory is big on awesome experiences.  Fall just may become your favourite time of year to visit with crisp fall colours and cool breezes.  The clear waters of Georgian Bay are perfect for shipwreck viewing from a glass bottom boat as you tour out to Flowerpot Island, named after its unique land formations.  Needless to say, it’s a popular spot for divers, too, as it is home to an underwater national park, Fathom Five National Marine Park
The Bruce Trail meets its end in Tobermory, after winding its way through the nearby Bruce Peninsula National Park (due to high visitation in 2020, it is highly recommended that you check parking and park capacity ahead of time).  In addition to the incredibly popular Grotto, the park and surrounding area has lots of other treasures to discover too – the park’s Visitor Centre and 65-foot observation tower (closed in 2020 due to COVID-19), Singing Sands, Lion’s Head Provincial Park, the village of Lion’s Head itself (try a take-out lunch at the Lion’s Head Inn or, weather permitting, on the patio) and two almost-shoreline drives on the east and west sides of the peninsula, both stunning in fall.   Learn even more about this unique and diverse natural wonder by taking a guided Eco – Adventure tour (available year round – reserve your spot in advance for your family or social circle).  PLAN AHEAD and contact the places you wish to visit, eat and stay before leaving home. 

Note:  Some operators switch to seasonal hours after Labour Day so be sure to check ahead for operator hours before leaving home.
