Drop Off Tours

All of our drop off tours leave Bruce Anchor’s departure dock at exactly the time they are scheduled. From there, passengers are taken into Big Tub Harbour to view two of Fathom Five National Marine Park’s historic shipwrecks. These wrecks are easily viewed over the sides of our vessels or through our large glass panel floors – that you can stand on!!
After the shipwreck viewing our tour will take you to Flowerpot Island. You will see the famous Flowerpots from the water as you approach Beachy Cove, our docking location. Depending on which vessel you select for your tour you will arrive on Flowerpot Island between 20 and 50 minutes from the time you depart Bruce Anchor’s dock.
Once the vessel has safely docked at Flowerpot passengers who chose a drop off tour will exit the boat and begin their adventure on Flowerpot Island. Hiking on the island is self-guided so make sure you note the time it takes you to get from place to place!

Your scheduled return sailing time will leave promptly at the time it was scheduled to depart Flowerpot Island. It will be the only seat that you are guaranteed on to get home.

Stay Aboard Tours

A stay aboard tour is an excellent way to see the sights of Fathom Five National Marine Park from the water.
All of our tours leave Bruce Anchor’s departure dock at exactly the time they are scheduled. From there, passengers are taken into Big Tub Harbour to view two of Fathom Five National Marine Park’s historic shipwrecks. These wrecks are easily viewed over the sides of our vessels or through our large glass panel floors – that you can stand on!!
After the shipwreck viewing our tour will take you around Echo Island and then to Flowerpot Island to view the historic light station and famous Flowerpots.
Sometimes we offer a combined tour that consists of drop off tour passengers and stay aboard tour passengers. If your stay aboard tour consists of drop off tour passengers, your Captain will dock at Beachy Cove, on Flowerpot Island, to let those passengers off to explore the island on foot. Meanwhile, all stay aboard passengers will remain on the vessel for the ride back to Bruce Anchor’s dock.
This tour option is great for those who prefer not to hike on Flowerpot Island, or for those who prefer to stay dry on a rainy day.
