Hello - Aanii - Welcome to Our Neighbourly Cross-Cultural 

Canadian Destination!

Manitoulin Island, located in Lake Huron 1.5 hours from Sudbury, is home to a friendly, family-oriented, outdoorsy type of people who love to share their good fortune of being surrounded by...

'Fresh Air  +  Fresh Water  +  Fresh Food'

Islanders enjoy telling stories by the campfire, being on the lake, and encompassed by nature.

"...Some may say we are behind on the times, but we say we are all about the good times!"

"We happily live between old and new ways."

Our door is always open and we love to have company,

so we hope to see you soon!

How big is Manitoulin Island and can I travel it in a day?

Manitoulin Island is approximately 100 miles (160 km) from East to West and 45 miles (72 km) from North to South in it's widest spot. Ideally, we recommend a three day stay to enjoy all that Manitoulin has to offer.

How can I get to Manitoulin Island?

Manitoulin Island can be primarily accessed in two ways: 1. By road - Manitoulin can be accessed year-round via Highway 6 from Espanola. After travelling south on Highway 6, you will cross over the famous swing bridge in Little Current at the northeastern corner of the island. 2. By ferry - During the summer months, Manitoulin can be visited via the MS Chi-Cheemaun ferry. The ferry runs between Tobermory (the northernmost point of the Bruce Peninsula) and South Baymouth (on the south shore of the island), and the crossing is approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes. The ferry is availalble between May and October (Thanksgiving weekend). For more information, updates, and to book your reservation please visit the Ontario Ferries website here.

Where can I buy authentic "Made on Manitoulin" souvenirs?

Made on Manitoulin products can be purchased at several locations across the island. You can find them at our Destination Manitoulin Island Centre in South Baymouth, as well as other Made on Manitoulin locations.
