How can one get there?

By Driving

The famous Little Current Swing Bridge is also the only way for visitors to access the island year-round.

Located on the northeastern corner of Manitoulin on Highway 6, the swing bridge has been in operation for over 100 years and is an Ontario Heritage site.

The swing bridge allows people to cross on to the island all year, however in the summer visitors should be aware that the bridge really does swing!

Each hour on the hour during daylight, the bridge will swing for 15 minutes to let marine traffic through.

To get to the bridge, travellers take Highway 17 to Espanola, and at the Tim Hortons/Wendy's intersection, follow Highway 6 through the town of Espanola.

By continuing on Highway 6 through Birch Island/Whitefish River First Nation, travellers will eventually come to the swing bridge, where they will wait at the stop light before crossing onto Manitoulin Island to get to the Town of Little Current.
