Come see the sights on Manitoulin Island!
The only land route to and from the Island is a Swing Bridge that was constructed in 1913. Today the Swing Bridge still swings open to allow boat passage, with the opening and closing only taking a few minutes. It certainly is a sight to see considering it is the only swing bridge in Canada still in operation.
Manitoulin Island is also home to six Ojibways Reserves, with the Wikwemikong being the only "unceded" reserve in Canada. Every year an amazing, colourful display of culture is presented in a Pow Wow by each of the Reserves. You'll see drummers, singers, dancers, art shows, craft sales, native food sales and much more at each Pow Wow. It is an experience you won't want to miss.
Manitoulin Island can also be reached using the MS Chi-Cheemaun passenger/car ferry. The convenient connection between the Bruce Peninsula and Manitoulin Island has an array of departure and arrival times to accomodate your needs.
Bridal Veil Falls, on the north side of Manitoulin Island, is one of those places that photographs picture perfect, no matter what. Spend the day relaxing at the picnic tables or taking a shower under this magnificent water fall.
The Cup and Saucer Trail is located roughly 20 minutes from Providence Bay. It is a unique hiking experience which offers a panoramic view of over 35 miles from the 250 foot high cliff lookouts.The entire trail is approximately 4 miles in length and takes about 2 hours to complete.
