Scuba & Snorkeling
This summer come dive and snorkel in the incredibly clear waters of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Here you can explore over 20 shipwrecks, some of which sank more than 100 years ago. We offer diving adventures for everyone, no matter what their skill level is.
Our Waterfront boasts a lot of great restaurants that strive to provide customers with relaxing and satisfying meals. Diners can sit back on the patio and watch the sun set over Georgian Bay as they enjoy delicious entrees, including fresh fish caught from the bay itself.
Tobermory is home to dozens of great bands, many of which frequent the stages at restaurants and bars throughout the region. New artists from different genres are always welcome to take to the stage to show off their skills.
Tobermory is proud to house the St. Edmunds Township Museum, which dates back to 1898 and showcases the history of the area, with a special section dedicated just to marine history (everything from maps to relics from shipwrecks). In addition, the First Nations tribes in the area have proudly maintained the traditions and ceremonies passed down by their people for centuries.
The deep and sparkling waters at the mouth of Georgian Bay contain Fathom Five – Canada’s first National Marine Conservation Area. The park preserves a rich cultural legacy that includes 22 shipwrecks and a natural legacy of impressive lakebed topography found beneath the waves.
Several historic lighthouses stand guard in Tobermory, Big Tub, Cabot Head, Cove Island and Flowerpot Island. For years they helped ships avoid catastrophe on dark and stormy waters, now they help travellers enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding lakes and forests.
