GLASS BOTTOM CRUISES
GLASS BOTTOM SCENIC CRUISES
Includes Shipwrecks, a tour of the Fathom Five National Marine Park and the famous Flowerpots of Flowerpot Island
Tobermory Glass Bottom Tour of the Shipwreck, Lighthouse, Islands & The Flowerpots
Our glass-bottom scenic cruises are 90-minute roundtrip tours. Each cruise begins with a visit to Big Tub Harbour, the deepest natural harbour in any of the Great Lakes where we will cruise past the Big Tub Lighthouse to see the final resting place of the famous Sweepstakes schooner, a perfectly visible and nearly intact shipwreck dating back to the 19th century!
From there, cruise through the Devil Island Channel and the narrow channel between Cove Island and the Otter Islands. Sail past the light station on Flowerpot Island and get ready for the best photo-op yet, at this tour’s final highlight, the two world-famous Flowerpots!
Enjoy the last leg of the tour cruising back toward the Tobermory Harbour via Middle Island (or “Plucky” as it is locally known) while taking in the sights of the Fathom Five National Marine Park.
All children 3 and under are required to have tickets to board the vessel even though they are free of charge. Please ensure every member of your group is on the ticket, or they will not be allowed to board.
