Bruce Coast Lighthouse Tour is a popular learning experience and sightseeing road trip exploring the shoreline of Georgian Bay and Lake Huron visiting lighthouses and marine heritage sites in Ontario, Canada.
Some enjoy the tour from the deck of a boat, often with an interpretive guide explaining the history of each attraction. For many the tour is best from a boat as some of the lighthouses are not accessible from a vehicle.
There are a total of 15 lighthouses to visit starting or ending from the northern tip of Bruce Peninsula near the community of Tobermory to the southern community of Point Clark.
The total distance is 210 kilometres and is best enjoyed over a 2-3 day period. It is recommended that the road trip be divided into 4 road trips. (1) Point Clark to Kincardine (2) Paisley to Southampton (3) Lion’s Head to Cape Croker (4) Cabot Head to Tobermory.
Some of the marine sites and lighthouses are the Point Clark, Kincardine, Chantry Island (marine access only), Big Tub, Cove Island (marine access only), Flowerpot Island (marine access only), Cabot Head, Lion's Head and Cape Croker.
