The cruise will take us to Fathom five national marine park, (approx. 50 mins cruise), you will see shipwreck on the cruise and will arrive at Flowerpot Island. On the Island's hiking trail we will see the flowerpot, the lighthouse, and the museum...<br>*** NOTE:<br>The pick-up time will be at 8:00 AM from your residence/hotel in Toronto or GTA (Grand Toronto Area)<br>This tour is entirely in Canada and passports are NOT required.<br>The itinerary is flexible and can be customized according to your needs

Very nice place to visit. We took the bleu heron tour cruise. Table the glass bottom boat with stop at Flowerpot Island. The hiking trails are easy and very nice. The scenery is fantastic.

Caught the first morning ferry (Bruce Anchor) to the island and spent 3 hours actually on the island which allowed us to experience all the hiking trails as well as a stop for a picnic lunch. The ride over was a bit rough as was windy but trip back uneventful. The island is quite beautiful and the flowerpots are worth the short hike to see them unclose. The "mountain loop" is rougher and has some challenging spots but lovely hike through the forests. There are numerous spots for having a meal (will need to bring your own food and drinks as nothing available on the island) Well worth a visit + would recommend staying on the island for 2-3 hours.

Though we've lived in Ontario and been regular patrons of the Sauble Beach area our whole lives, my sister and I had never been to Flowerpot Island. We booked a trip for my birthday and had an amazing time swimming, hiking, and climbing up on the rocks. The water colour was nearly tropical! Those photos aren't edited - that's the real deal. Although our trip was too late in the day to see the shipwrecks through the glass bottom boat, we still had an amazing day and my sister got to check an item off her bucket list.
