“Nice Hike”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Surprisingly a nice little hike. Very short hikes from drop-off point to lighthouse; probably less then a mile away. The flowerpots are not spectacular, but the overall features when combined with the views, the lake and just being there is pretty nice. If you like outdoors, it's worth a visit.

“Worth every penny!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

We went there with Bruce Anchor Cruises - friendly and pro crew - nothing to whine about. The island itself - fantastic! Great hike.

“Excellent Day Trip”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Nice hiking trails around the island. The old lighthouse keepers home is now a museum and it was fun to see how isolated they must have felt out there all alone. There is a lookout point and a cave you can explore. The main attraction the Flower Pots, do not disappoint. They are unique in appearance and a must see. The water around the shoreline of not only the island, but the whole coastline of the area is the clearest water I have ever seen. The clarity really lets the beautiful hues of blue and green come through.

“Beautiful scenery”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Flowerpot island is a must if you are in Tobermory, ON. Its very beautiful. Both the flowerpots and the crystal clear water makes the scenery breathtakingly awesome. You can spend whole day on this island. Enjoy swimming. Bring lunch because there is nothing like a restaurant or snack bar on this island.
One thing I like to mention is that this island is not stroller friendly so leave it in your car or hotel before boarding the ferry to island,
July and August re the best months to visit this place.
