  • Could'nt actually see it so not really a review. The descriptions and pictures make the wrecks look like something you can see from the shoreline - Only by boat!  more »
  • The trails are very well maintained and easy to make. There are toilets quite regularly on site. Also places to picnic, the water is clear, clear it's amazing

  • Best place I have ever been in Canada... Fathom Five also contains numerous islands, notably Flowerpot island, which has rough camping facilities, marked trails, and its namesake flowerpots, outlying stacks of escarpment cliff that stand a short distance from the island, most with vegetation (including trees) still growing on them. Established in 1987, the park represented a pioneering departure for the national park system, which had centred on land-based conservation until then. Its designation as a National Marine Park foresaw the creation of others, though nomenclature for such units would morph into National Marine Conservation Areas, leaving Fathom Five as the only National Marine Park. Despite its unique name, it is categorized as an NMCA and is deemed the first one in the country. The park is home to several shipwrecks, many of which are used for scuba diving and some shallower ones are used for snorkelling. The park also has three non-shipwreck dive sites, these are Dunks Point, Big Tub Lighthouse Point and The Anchor
  • Beautiful place to visit. The Grotto was breathe taking, rock cliffs and water had to be the nicest I've ever seen. The only complaint I have is the people that bring inflatable boats and pink flamingos. Let's keep it natural people!
