    Awesome place

    A place to relax your mind to spend your day's time with the scenic beauty of crystal clear water and rocks and beaches

    Took the Blue Heron boat to the island, which took in the wrecks in Big Tub and then on to the island. We walked along the beach to see the flowerpots, take photos and then to the north shore where we stopped for a while. It’s a shame that you can’t get a coffee at the little shop but if there’s no electricity….. We took the inland trail back which was a little muddy in places but passable. Had lunch on the beach while waiting for the boat to come back after our three hours. A very enjoyable and reasonably priced trip

    Amazing experience snorkeling around. You have to respect the schedule not to disturb the boats traffic. You can get a map of all the shipwreck online and then all you have to do is bring your own gear. We've used our paddleboard to travel around and reach some pretty neat shipwreck location. Water is very cold and I strongly suggest you get a pretty good wetsuit to fully enjoyed your experience.

    This place is accessible for free after 18:00 (06:00 pm) It is an awesome spot to look at the sunset and the water is blue, the view is very amazing. Excellent spot to start from if you wish to go see the shipwreck at the end of the bay. You can start from there with your kayak or paddle board and even bring your snorkeling gear. Pretty good experience!

    Winter Yurt camping!!
    Great winter camping experience. Was very cold but stoked the wood stove to keep us warm and cozy inside. Be prepared to buy a lot of wood in the winter (when -15 C or below) to keep you warm. Bring some fire starter to get the fire going quickly upon arrival. The yurts were very clean and the staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. The yurts have a large deck with table and chairs, bbq as well as a fire chimnea. Most needed essentials are provided such as a snow shovel, indoor broom, fire extinguisher and alarm. Bring your own bedding, food, dishes and pots,games and warm clothes. Sleds and carts are provided for bringing your stuff to the yurt from your vehicle parking. BBQ with side burner (and propane) are provided- just bring your own BBQ brush and tools, pots and pans. The cooler was allowed to be kept in the yurt as bears are not active in winter. We found the beds to be surprisingly comfortable- bring some fitted sheets so you aren’t sleeping on the vinyl mattress cover. Sleeps 5. The park provides you with a battery operated lantern but you will want to bring your own and flashlights to give you more light in the evening. There is no electricity (and generators are not allowed) so plan accordingly. Cell phone reception was one bar (Bell) so limited. There is a clean modern heated washroom building nearby exclusively for yurt campers with showers. The trails to the coast in winter are very different from the summer. Absolutely beautiful and a must see. Tried some ice fishing but didn’t catch anything alas. Besides winter camping I think the yurts would be outstanding in the fall as well. We love the yurts and highly recommend as a fun experience.

    A great spot to tool around with a mask or try a deep dive off the shelf. NOBODY in Tobermory, tourists especially, seem to realize we are in the middle of a pandemic so be prepared to be in tight quarters here with people not wearing masks etc.

    The harbour is quiet and ok. Was not very busy the weekend we went.
    Area is nice and open, and decent for walks.
    The harbour has and feels small and cute.

    We went in the evening, so we easily found a parking space. We were able to use our Bruce Peninsula National Park pass to park here the same day. We didn't stay very long, but wanted to check out this area and it's stone beach. Beautiful views and easily accessible. Worth a visit!

    Good provincial park with decent small trails.
    Park is sidelined due to the other more famous parks nearby, good for family hikes or very beginner hikes. Someone who has done a lot more adventurous hikes will find this park less exciting.

    This is the Dunks Bay

    When we arrived there were lots of children. They played with the sand, others swim and other attractions for kid they brought with them.

    The Dunks Bay was beautiful.

    Some people used a boat.

    Everybody was happy!
