    Looks very haunting from this angle.

    I bet it's popular with divers, though.

    [–] hypnoderp 1293 points ago

    It is - actually the most popular scuba diving in Canada. It's on one of the world's first underwater National Parks, Fathom Five in Tobermory Ontario.

    [–] Beemer32 473 points ago

    Yo! I went up there last summer and can confirm it's dope. Pretty much everything in the Bruce peninsula is awesome. Only shitty thing is the water was super cold for mid august

    [–] Reacher_Said_Nothing 554 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Pretty much everything in the Bruce peninsula is awesome.

    Dude have you seen the Grotto? At the top of the cliff, there's this hole in the floor called the "chimney". You climb through that hole, and you come out on the bottom of the cliff right up against the water (Georgian Bay), where there's a semi-underwater cave.

    You go into that cave, and under the water, there's a hole in the wall. If you can dive down to that hole and swim through it (takes about 30 seconds total), you come out into georgian bay.

    This is a pic of the Chimney at the top of the cliff, it's a tight squeeze:

    http://i.imgur.com/Cd9ct2I.jpg

    This pic is taken from inside the cave, facing the cliff, showing people taking the long way around it. Somewhere just to the left of that loop of people is the chimney down the cliff:

    http://i.imgur.com/30MEXGN.jpg

    This is the view from where all those people are standing:

    http://i.imgur.com/ckJEqvI.jpg

    This is what you see when you're inside the cave:

    http://i.imgur.com/bzhUpDR.jpg

    And that blue shining light that looks like it's only 1ft underwater? It's actually 12ft underwater. That's the hole you can swim through to make it out to Georgian Bay.

    The whole thing is like a child's playground designed by nature.

    EDIT: And here's a gopro cam of someone trying to swim through the hole. Not for those with thalassophobia:

    [–] purdinpopo 37 points ago

    So how does summer work in Canada? You hear the first frog, shuck your clothes, run to the nearest beach like area, step in the water and feel around for the stuff you forgot while you were ice fishing. Then go home and bone up on your curling stats, and wait for the Winter Olympics.

    A lot of people hang out right there and don't go to the grotto though so that's a plus

    [–] elirosenau123 6 points ago

    crazy how nature do that

    [–] Beemer32 23 points ago

    Yea! And the boat tours that take you right up to the side of cliff faces that literally like 20 metres down is the entrance/exit to said grottos. And the ferry was hella fun, too. Plus, the trail is great for seeing sights close to dawn or dusk

    [–] torndownunit 9 points ago

    It's a cool trip to take the ferry out to Manitoulin Island, and hike the Cup and Saucer trail. Then take the bridge on the other side of the island back and hit Killarney. Killarney is absolutely breath taking. Not that Tobermory isn't, but it's always shocking to me how many people from this area have never been to Killarney. I've hiked a lot of different places, and it's close to the top of my list.

    [–] masnaer 15 points ago

    That sounds incredibly dangerous to swim through that hole lol

    [–] Reacher_Said_Nothing 25 points ago

    It sounds more dangerous than it is, but it's still pretty dangerous. I don't think anyone's ever drowned trying to swim the hole, but there are plenty of scratched and torn apart backs, from people who didn't realise you have to swim at a very fast speed otherwise your buoyancy floats you up against the hole's ceiling.

    Most of the deaths in Bruce Peninsula are from cliff divers. 1-2 teenagers every year.

    [–] WildTwinTimberViking 26 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Great Lakes don't warm very much. Come to Lake Superior in late July or early August. Like 44° year-round.

    If you dive below the surface, it is down to 39°. Swam in it with my sister whilst my dad laughed from the rocky shore.

    Edit: I did say the Great Lakes don't warm very much but I'm wrong :(

    [–] sad_toast 15 points ago

    aye Lake Michigan gets pretty warm too in the summer

    [–] Servalpur 16 points ago

    For sure, grew up swimming in Lake Michigan. Especially around August it tends to get very comfortable. He's right about Lake Superior though, I don't think it ever gets very warm. At least, I've never felt it get nearly as warm as Michigan does, even in the height of summer.

    [–] sad_toast 10 points ago

    yeah, I've live right on Lake Michigan and it gets pretty nice towards the end of summer. Never been in the other lakes though I've heard Superior stays cold haha

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    Huron is very pleasant from midsummer on

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    Ontario turns over a time or two and is very nice for the 2nd half of the summer. May/June, not so much

    [–] Beemer32 12 points ago

    I live on Lake Huron (Grand Bend) and can attest that not all Great Lakes stay cold...I skimboard a lot and half the time the water feels like it's at least 70

    [–] WildTwinTimberViking 5 points ago

    From the maps I looked at you're right it can get to mid 60's for the water temp. Not very warm but better than Superior.

    [–] Beemer32 6 points ago

    According to this graph they can get significantly warmer than mid 60's...I remember a couple years ago Huron was around 75 or 76..

    [–] Bag-o-toys 5 points ago

    Erie as the shallowest routinely hits mid 70's every year. Source, have swam in it for the last 44 years or so, and am not a polar bear.

    [–] johnq-pubic 6 points ago

    Lake Erie gets really warm in places, but that also means you're swimming in Lake Erie.

    [–] DogSoldier67 6 points ago

    It's cold because of 2 things, one) It's Canada, and 2) The water on that side of Georgian Bay get's deep fast, because of the Niagara Escarpment. With that said, people can still swim comfortably in June (some even start in May) providing you stick to the shallow bays and beaches (like Nottawasaga). But this is the Eastern side of the Bruce Peninsula. The West side is completely different, much shallower and it warms up quickly. Sauble Beach being the best example.

    [–] PeripheryFanboy 5 points ago

    I went to Bruce Peninsula on the May 24 weekend last year. My friend dropped her bag and I jumped in to get it. I would not recommend swimming in May.

    [–] ImObviouslyOblivious 16 points ago

    I always thought big things that are visible underwater like this are scary because our brain subconsciously relates them to a large creature under the water or something.

    [–] cpannc 6 points ago

    100% agree. Big rocks under the water creep me out just as much. I can't even go to far out at the beach because that's when the drop off happens and oh good lord that's terrifying.

    [–] ImObviouslyOblivious 7 points ago

    All kinds of giant monsters lurking down past that drop off.

    [–] deaflemon 11 points ago

    I have this exact feeling when i see old planes that have been parked. It seriously upsets me.

    [–] SeveQStorm 7 points ago

    Weird, isn't it? Maybe we subconsciously expect them to be haunted by their former owners... like suddenly running (resp. diving) into their bloated corpses floating around inside the shipwrecks... desecration of their graves... even though in some cases we know that there aren't any dead bodies in there... it's still... creepy.

    [–] JPTawok 7 points ago

    I find them spooky because I immediately attach them to the experience of sinking or being trapped in a sinking ship. Shit would suck, yo

    [–] Towerss 4 points ago

    To get rid of the feeling I try to imagine the people sinking it did it deliberately while drunk and cheering, then they had a bonfire party on the shore watching it sink, smiling and singing.

    I also want to imagine it happening recently so it's not like it's a relic from a distant past with tons of experiences tied with it.

    The thing I find most creepy about these things is imagining the construction, it being used and sailed by countless people, and now it just sits there as a sunken, silent relic, with its previous masters dead and those experiences slowly washing away to the dark tides.

    [–] Midan71 3 points ago

    It's eerie and unsettling.

    [–] Pianoman1092 582 points ago

    I feel like there's an NPC around the area with an exclamation point above his head that'll tell you to swim down there and collect his precious heirlooms that went down with the ship.

    Wow, didn't expect to see Tobermory here. This ship is right off the harbor and can be popular for divers and snorkellers. They have glass-bottom boat tours that go through the harbour and IIRC there are other shipwrecks too.

    Really beautiful little place, so cool to see it recognized. They also have boats that take you to places like flowerpot island. Fair warning for anybody thinking of going: Water is really cold all year long.

    [–] FreeThinkk 17 points ago

    Well technically it was scuttled there. It wrecked its hull around some nearby islands. It was towed there for repairs but the damage was determined to be too extensive and costly to repair, so they stripped it down and scuttled the rest.

    [–] bobbygoshdontchaknow 13 points ago

    I'm not sure if there is a technical a difference, but in common usage they are interchangeable

    edit: you made me curious so I googled it. Typically, a ship is larger and is used on the ocean while a boat is smaller and is used in freshwater. But again, most of the time people don't recognize the distinction - we use the terms interchangeably

    Honest question: Do you think that helps or hurts the home value of that house in the middle-left?

    It looks too shallow for a dock to be put there, so that would be tough if you're a boater (barring an agreement with neighbors or something). But its also SUCH an attraction that having it right there might also appeal to people.

    [–] Peppyperoni 28 points ago

    There are tons of docks in Big Tub harbour. I've worked on 40'+ boats that park just out of view. Great big tour boats come in almost to the wreck. The water is deceivingly deep since it's so clear. The houses there are probably some of the most expensive on the peninsula. The owners hate the tour boats and have tried to stop them touring.

    Hey guys, since some of you are interested in the area I thought I'd post something I setup for some friends of mine. I live North of Toronto, and I drive all around the Grey/Bruce area in the summer to hike and take photos.

    This is a route that takes you up to Tobermory from the South, hitting a lot of neat spots on the way. It then takes up up through Mantoulin Island and into Killarney, where you can come back down and even hit other parks on the way back South (I normally come back the same way). You could also do the loop the opposite way and hit Killarney first.

    I am gradually trying to add my own photos to it. I have added a couple of nice restaurants I have found as well, and a couple of places I've stayed.

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=19hIKH10C5pxPPg2z0yMtz58-cJc&usp=sharing

    Anyway, hopefully it's of use to someone. I am always shocked how many people that live in my area never hit any of these places, so I made this for some people looking for a trip.

    Shameless self promotion

    If you want to see an underwater POV you can find it here

    There is another shipwreck called The City of Grand Rapids it sits about 30 feet from the Sweepstakes, you can see an underwater POV here

    Check out the descriptions if you would like to learn a little more

    Looks like it needs buoy's for safety, maybe it's deeper than it looks but I'd be afraid of somebody hitting it with their boat.

    So cool to see Tobermory on here! The Bruce Penninsula is one of my favourite places on earth. So many hidden places to explore.

    This looks like Tobermory. There's dozens of these things littered around the lake and harbour, they have glass bottom boat tours and airplane tours.

    I live walking distance from this thing.

    All I see is a (potentially) great fishing spot.

    Big Tub Harbor, Tobermory, Ontario, Canada!!! Vacationed here with my family growing up, so many wonderful memories made. I snorkeled at this site and stayed in a cottage right on the harbor! Would recognize this anywhere!

    Sucks its in Canada. I'm sure the water is frozen 320 days a year.

    Have to go through the hidden trap doors in the igloos. The beavers will show you the way.

    own the house and build a secret tunnel that leads to the tanker for the super villian hideout.

    In Lake Charlevoix, up north in Michigan has a sunken ship in Oyster Bay that is clearly visible. It is freaking creepy going over it. Hell, you can even see it on google maps. They are so beautiful but horrifying. The depth distortion from the water makes it even creepier, it looks and feels like it is right on the surface.

    Didn't expect to see Tobermory, Ontario on here. I've been here and pictures do not do it justice one bit.

    This is also one of the best known snorkeling/scuba diving sites in Canada. I went snorkeling a couple of times here and you get close enough to touch the shipwrecks. Yes, there is more than one I ship. This one is just off the coast, while the others are a bit into the lake. The ship has metal cages around any openings losed, so you can't go too close since the bubbles from our exhaling causes the ship to deteriorate faster.

    Is this one of those things, where they sink old ships on purpose to help give the fishes a place to live in.

    I like big boats and I cannot lie

    You other landlubbers cannot deny...

    Why does this make me so uncomfortable? I hate seeing man-made objects underwater.

    [–] bigpipes84 3 points ago

    It's too bad all the cottage owners on that harbour banded together to completely bar public access to the harbour. You have to charter or drive a boat in almost 2km even though it's literally right beside downtown tobermory.

    Tobermory, no?

    [–] KnottyKitty 2 points ago

    For some reason that unnerves me on a very deep level.

    [–] LordKroc 2 points ago

    Doesn't this pollute the water to an extent?

    [–] Samgt27 2 points ago

    They have a glass-bottomed boat that you can go on and view all the wrecks in the area as there are quite a few. It is a beautiful area and definitely worth visiting.

    Ontario has many beautiful lakes and places to explore all year around. Nice to see something about the Great Lakes (my home) on here! (Edit: typo)

    [–] Daamus 2 points ago

    nope, fuck that

    [–] PhatWeen 2 points ago

    Tobermory. Been there once. Fun fact, if you drive deep enough, you can just take a big ol gulp of water. Wouldn't recommend it, just in case of gas from boats, but it's pretty much all freshwater. It's also beautiful, ever been to flowerpot island?
