Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Our extremely unique and modern glass bottom vessels depart Tobermory on a regular schedule. Our tours operate during the spring, summer, and fall! Passengers are given an opportunity to view two 19th century shipwrecks, The Sweepstakes and The City of Grand Rapids, resting just a few feet below the surface. Following the shipwreck viewing, guests will pass by Big Tub Light House (1885). From there we cruise around Flowerpot Island passengers for a view of the magical scenery. This scenery includes the historic Flowerpot Light station, the light keeper’s homes, the Flowerpot rock formations and more. If you are planning to hike the island, we dock at Beachy Cove to allow allow passengers to disembark and explore the island on foot for a couple of hours. Stay Aboard cruises are also available.

This is a must do when in Tobermory. They take you to see a minimum of two shipwrecks on the way to Flower Pot Island. Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Small dogs are permitted on some boats if you ask in advance.

We had a great day taking the Evolution boat over to Flower Pot Island. The boat was clean and the staff was so friendly and provided some great history about the area. I loved that we could see the shipwrecks over the side of the boat. We enjoyed hiking on the Island and we took the advise of a helpful ticket agent (Libbie) who told us what to see on the Island and some other fun spots to visit in Tobermory. We will definitely be back next year.

Overall great experience. Was able to book online, which was a time saver and allowed my to get exactly what I wanted. Once there, the young ladies in the booth were able to provided information to all my questions.
The boat was nice and viewing was easy. The host speaking on the microphone could barely be heard, so I missed alot of information.
Departure and drop off were prompt and we even were able to change our departure time without a hassle.
One drawback was wet seats. Expected on a boat I guess, but walking around with a wet butt was uncomfortable.

We chose one of the covered boat cruises and the young staff was very professional and pleasant. I will concede though that the cruise is great because of the destination. Without Flower Pot Island, the cruise would not be as effective.

From booking to picking up the tickets to boarding the boat, their service was wonderful. Worth every penny.
