A good place to visit but the driving is about 3.5 hours from GTA. All areas are now paid parking including the Big Tub. Be prepared in case you haven't visited Tobermory in a long time.

We forgot to drive to Big Tub Lighthouse early in the day as originally planned so we had to settle on seeing it from afar—from Bruce Anchor’s dock overlooking Big Tub harbour and onboard the boats to and from Flowerpot Island. From the dock, we...More

Great place to have a little walk around and check out the light house. Crystal clear waters and a shipwreck near by. Nice place to sit for lunch by the water and watch the Ferry go into the bay.

Beautiful spot! A must see. I would include this spot as part of future trips. You can see the Chi Chi Man come into port.

You can't go in the lighthouse & it's really rocky around it although people were swimming. The forested trail leading up to the lighthouse is neat

No. The parking at the lighthouse is a municipal toll. The lighthouse is not on park property. There is limited parking at the sight. There is roadside parking (pay only) but most is in the roadside brush with little... More
