Bruce Peninsula

Owen Sound to Tobermory

The Bruce Peninsula is diverse and unique as you will see from the pictures. This is the home of the Bruce Peninsula National Park & Fathom Five National Marine Park. What you will find is cliffs and unique beaches to the East and shallow water and many beaches to the west.

This picture shows Owen Sound Bay on the bottom right and Tobermory on the top. The Niagra Escarpment is along the east shore of the Bruce Peninsula.

Fathom Five National Marine Park and Bruce Peninsula National Park protect the on- and off-shore landscapes produced by the spectacular Niagara Escarpment as it meets and dives below the waters of Georgian Bay. Fathom Five is composed of green islands, lake bottoms and clear cold water; Bruce Peninsula is its mainland counterpart of limestone cliffs, mixed forests, wetlands and tranquil beaches.

These pictures are looking south along the Niagra Escarpment. The Bruce Trail is along the top of the ridge in most places (Bruce Trail Association). There are lots of crevasses and caves to explore.
