Flowerpot Island Lighthouse, Tobermory

4.4
#2 of 11 in Historic Sites in Bruce County
Following a tough hike across the island, you'll be rewarded with the sight of Flowerpot Island Lighthouse, which sits on a rock platform just by the water’s edge. The cone-shaped lighthouse stands at roughly 30 m (98 ft) tall and features an almost all-white exterior, with the windows and railings painted in red. Take a seat on one of the benches found right beside the lighthouse and admire the view over Georgian Bay. If you’re brave enough, dip into the water, which is quite cold. Speak to volunteers who maintain the lighthouse to learn about its history, as well as that of the island. With our international travel planner, Tobermory attractions like Flowerpot Island Lighthouse can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Only thing that keeps this amazing spot from being 5 star is the cave attraction has been closed for 2 years now. That's a real bummer however hiking flowerpot for the day is always fantastic. A few things to keep in mind. This island is not suitable for flip flops wear some good hiking shoes to make sure you can access all the great viewing areas. Strollers wont get everywhere either. There is a nice groomed walking trail that will only show you about a 3rd of the island.
