Drop Off Tours

A Drop-off Tour views the shipwrecks, the flowerpots, and includes a stopover at Flowerpot Island. You will arrive at Beachy Cove, the drop-off point on Flowerpot Island, approximately 30-50 minutes after your departure from Tobermory. Since you are disembarking onto Flowerpot Island, you will need to purchase a National Park Pass that is valid for 24 hours. After your hike on the island, we will pick you back up from Beachy Cove at your pre-booked return time. The return ride is approximately 20 minutes back to our dock.
Stay Aboard Tours
