Flowerpot Island

Just 6.5 kilometres off the coast of Tobermory lies Flowerpot Island.  This island is one of Canada’s most fascinating natural attractions. Flowerpot Island is famous for its natural sea stacks, also known as the “flowerpots.”   Flowerpot Island offers adventurers an opportunity to explore caves, hiking trails, a historic light station and a variety of rare plants. Flowerpot Island is the only island in Fathom Five National Marine Park with campsites and hiking trails. The island is only accessible by boat, but we can take you there!
