If you’ve ever wanted to visit the clear blue waters of Bruce Peninsula National Park during the summer, but don’t want to spend nearly four hours driving, we’ve got some good news for you.
Starting in May, you’ll be able to fly directly from downtown Toronto with FLYGTA directly to Wiarton Keppel International Airport, which is close to the Grey Bruce Region which is home to the Bruce Peninsula and Tobermory—meaning you can get to this beach paradise in about 40 minutes of air time.
Operating on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays, the 2019 flight service begins on May 24, with a guarantee to continue through October 28, and possibly through the winter season.
Flights are available for booking starting Tuesday, April 2, and FLYGTA’s website is showing flights as costing $175 total one-way, with flights departing as early as 1 pm.
“The Township of Georgian Bluffs is excited about having FLYGTA provide regularly scheduled flights between Wiarton and Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport,” said Township of Georgian Bluffs Mayor, Dwight Burley.
“This opens up huge opportunities for business, leisure and tourism for the Grey Bruce Region. This 40-minute flight allows Grey Bruce Region to be connected to the world and its opportunities while allowing businesses and residents the opportunity to live and operate in the most beautiful, safe and cleanest region Ontario offers,” said Burley.
The Bruce Peninsula is home to a natural wonder that you’ll have to experience in person to believe it exists.
Near the town of Tobermory, The Grotto is known as one of the top tourist attractions in the province. The Grotto is a natural wonder and a memorable place to experience Ontario as you’ve never seen it.
But to further entice you to book a trip north, Tobermory is also home to over 20 historic shipwrecks, not to mention Flowerpot Island, which is a little getaway island famous for its natural “flowerpot” rock pillars, caves, historic light station and rare plants.
