Sightseeing
Beach place renovated and re-opened summer 2018! Must visit with family and friends or solo!
Limestone cliffs, mixed wood lots, abundant wetlands and tranquil beaches are all important features of this Park. The mixed forest cover of cedar, balsam, fir, spruce, birch and aspen is relatively young. By the late 1800's most of the area had been logged, and in 1908 what remained was burned off in a major fire. Yet, the Bruce is a botanists and photographers paradise including 40 species of orchids and 20 species of ferns. Wildlife, particularly deer, snowshoe hare, red squirrels, beaver, chipmunks, foxes and over 100 species of birds are seen regularly. Bruce Peninsula National Park is home to the "Grotto", a sea cave that was carved from the rock face by centuries of waves beating on the cliffs. If you enjoy hiking, there are many trails in the National Park with varying degrees of difficulty.

In 1885, the Department of Marine and Fisheries bought three lots at the entrance to the Big Tub Harbour for a lighthouse. In the 1870's, Charles Earl, one of the first settlers in the township, hung a lantern on a tree where the lighthouse was later built. Earl's lantern guided ships into the Big Tub Harbour where they could take refuge from storms and high seas. Grateful for this service, sailors gave Earl coal, flour and coal oil. In 1883 he was paid one hundred dollars a year for this service. He became the first keeper of the new light and remained so until his death. The 43 foot lighthouse at the entrance to Big Tub Harbour is now fully automated with access for visitors. This is a great vantage point to view Big Tub Harbour and watch the Chi-Cheemaun ferry arriving and departing!

Cabot Head Lighthouse (*** This lighthouse will be closed for the season in 2019) Perched 80 feet above Georgian Bay, on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula, the Cabot Head Lighthouse has guided ships for over 100 years. Named in honour of famous explorer, John Cabot, this site offers spectacular views of the Niagara Escarpment and Georgian Bay. cabothead In 1968, the original tower was demolished and replaced with an automated light. Fifteen years later, the Friends of Cabot Head completely restored the lightstation. Visitors are now encouraged to visit the lighthouse museum and walk the interpretive trails. Cabot Head Lighthouse is a wooden dwelling with an attached 49' square wood tower rising from one corner. Its original light, operational in 1896, could be seen for 16 miles from its perch about 80' above water level. The area was named in honour of explorer John Cabot. Situated on a cliff 1/3 mile east of Wingfield Basin (a nature reserve) in Georgian Bay, the lighthouse was constructed by John George of Port Elgin and Richard Webb of Southampton. The Friends of Cabot Head are a volunteer organization that maintain and staff the Cabot Head Lighthouse and Museum. The Lighthouse is open daily from May - October 10 am - 7pm and the Lightkeeper's Locker store is open 10 am - 6pm.

When you travel on the ferry between Tobermory and Manitoulin Island, keep an eye out for the Cove Island light station. It will be on the west side, about 20 minutes from Tobermory. Its 24 metre (80 ft.) tower is one of six Imperial lighthouses built in the 1850's. The Cove Island light was first lit on October 30, 1858, following a delay in the shipping of the lens from France. The fuel first used was sperm whale oil! Today the light is electrically powered thanks to a submarine power cable linking Cove Island to Tobermory. The light from the 500 watt bulb is magnified to about 10 times its power by six prisms that revolve around the light. The prisms are separated by sections of frame giving the impression that the light blinks on and off, when it is actually on all the time. Ships can see the Cove Island light up to 80 km. away (50 miles) depending on the weather. Construction of the lighthouse on Gig Point began in the late summer of 1855. In 1856 there were seven masons and stone cutters, ten labourers, one blacksmith, a foreman and three horses engaged in the work. Such were the demands of navigation that the crew maintained a temporary light during their presence on the island. Strategically located in the wilderness of uninhabited islands, the lighthouse frequently provided shelter for mariners in distress, such as the crews of the schooners San Jacinto, lost at Yeo Island, and Sarah Jane wrecked on Manitoulin Island and that of the Charles P. Minch. Technologically, the light passed through several stages, an Argand lamp utilizing sperm whale oil, then a flatwick coal oil lamp, and in about 1900 an oil vapour light in which vaporized kerosene was burned in an incandescent mantle. Sometime during the 1950's electrification by means of an on-site generator was introduced, and in 1971 a submarine power cable was laid from the mainland. A steam powered foghorn was erected in 1883 and a radio beacon prior to 1940. The lives of the keeper and his family revolved entirely around the maintenance of the light. Cove Island Light station still stands as a beacon to all sailors passing by and it is a reminder of days gone by.

Towering cliffs, strange rock formations, numerous caves, dense forest, glens, meadows, and flowers all surrounded by crystal clear water make Flowerpot Island one of the best attractions on the Peninsula. There were originally three flowerpots on the island (one fell down in 1903). These seastacks were created by waves pounding at the cracks in the limestone, gradually wearing away the softer lower limestone from the harder dolomite top. The resulting shape resembles a giant flowerpot. Other relics of the ancient sea that once covered all the Great Lakes area are the caves located 20 meters above Georgian Bay.

he Circle Arts story began in 1969 when Gale Jensen - a professor of Social Sciences at the University of Michigan - persuaded six students of the Ontario College of Art (OCA) to build an art gallery and studio on land he owned in Tobermory, Ontario. The group stayed in the small town on the picturesque Bruce Peninsula for the summer, producing oil paintings, watercolours, wood block prints, sculptures, silk screens, textiles, jewelry and pottery. They returned to Toronto to finish their studies at the end of the summer, then moved to Tobermory permanently the following spring. The Circle Arts story encompasses elements of its times and locales. It is the story of youthful enthusiasm and artistic maturity, local involvement and global markets, sound business sense and high creativity. More than anything else, it is the story of a commitment to Canadian art, and to those who produce and support it.
