Reviews Bruce Peninsula Boat Tours
The tour was really interesting. The historical background Pete gave explaining the early fishing, what happened, and how the islands were settled was great. The grandkids loved the shipwrecks. Pete was careful, and had great navigational skills. He really knew the waters. It was a wonderful afternoon.
We had a great tour of the Fishing Island with Fishing Island Tours and Charters. They shared a great deal about the history of the area and the plants and wildlife there. We especially enjoyed seeing the heron rookery, hearing the stories of shipwrecks and learning more about the geography of the Bruce Peninsula. Our kids had a blast! The weather was gorgeous and it was a perfect way to spend the afternoon.
I was on the Yoga trip with Cole and Elaine and it was wonderful. We were well looked after in beautiful surroundings. I would definitely recommend the experience to others.

Bruce Peninsula Boat Tours visits two of these wrecks on our tours. These ships carried lumber, barrels of fish and supplies.
The Bruce Peninsula’s Western Shoreline
The Oliphant coastline is complex of bays and a series of islands, known as The Fishing Islands. The islands and reefs protect the bays from intense wave energy. Due to this reduced wave action, the bays of the shoreline are fringed with coastal meadow marshes, or coastal fens, and narrow low sand beaches. The coastal fens here are considered globally rare and imperiled communities.
Residents, summer cottagers and day visitors embrace the shoreline activities the warm, clean water and beautiful coastline here offers us. Like all of the Bruce Peninsula, the unique environment here speaks to those who love and appreciate Ontario’s natural retreat.
