Flowerpot Island – Tobermory

Flowerpot Island

These unique rock formations are found on Flowerpot Island just north of Tobermory Ontario. We took the boat trip over and had fun exploring the island. It is well worth the trip if you ever get the chance.

Here is the description from the island website.

Just 6.5 kilometers off the coast of Tobermory lies Flowerpot Island, one of Canada’s most fascinating natural attractions. Flowerpot Island is famous for its natural sea stacks, the “flowerpots”, as well as its caves, historic lightstation and variety of rare plants. Accessible only by boat, Flowerpot Island is the only island in Fathom Five National Marine Park with campsites and hiking trails. It is a great place to spend half or a full day exploring the island, viewing the scenery, picnicking or swimming.

  1. It’s hard to imagine the forces that were in play to create these rock strata and formations!

    • You’re right! I saw an explanation of it but it is still hard to imagine!
