Stroll back in time with a visit to the Keeper's Cottage, restored to its original 1800s condition, and decorated with period furnishings. Marvel at the wonders of nature with a walk through the protected bird sanctuary, and surrounding gardens. Chantry Island Tours are brought to you by The Southampton Marine Heritage Society, a tireless group of dedicated volunteers.
Come out to breathtaking Southampton Ontario and take in the sights and sounds of Chantry Island. Take a tour of the Light Keeper's Cottage and climb the 106 steps to the top of the lighthouse tower for an unparalleled view of the area.
The island is also a Federal Migratory Bird Sanctuary. With approximately 50,000 birds on the island during the breeding season, it is surely a sight to behold.
