A Bridge to a View:
BIG TUB BENDS
Big Tub Bends is a celebration of the beauty of Tobermory’s history and its landscape. The multi-platform design allows visitors to immerse themselves in the views of Northern Bruce Peninsula and its notable shipwrecks that lurk beneath the surface of the water in Lake Huron. The upper level of the bridge is the structure that has a steel grate floor to allow visitors to observe the shipwreck from right above. Below is the secondary path that leads the visitors to walk below the water level. Having its passageway designed similar to a submarine, allows the visitors to experience the closest observation of the shipwreck from underwater which before was only granted to scuba divers. Platforms are supported by steel rods attached to a large arching pole held high above the bridge, striking the shoreline of the peninsula.
