Bus Tours

Come experience one of the world’s largest nuclear sites!

Registration for the 2024 Summer Bus Tour Program is now open!

Join us at the interactive and informative Bruce Power Visitors’ Centre and take a narrated site bus tour in June, July and August to learn more about clean and reliable nuclear energy, medical isotopes, and so much more!

Pre-registration (below) is highly recommended due to the popularity of the program, and no walk-in spaces will be held. 

Each person in your party must be registered individually, though it’s acceptable to use one phone number and email address for the group.

Please note, children under two years of age do not require registration.

Be aware, if you are booking for multiple people, that a glitch in the system causes the calendar to default to the closest available date – not necessarily the date you registered for – so double-check you’ve chosen your desired date for each registrant.

Also, if you use the same email address for all members of your group, you will only receive one email confirmation.

Tour schedule

In June, bus tours will be held at 11 a.m., Monday to Friday. In July and August, bus tours will be held seven days a week, at 10 and 11 a.m., and 1 p.m., excluding statutory holidays on July 1 and Aug. 5, when the Visitors’ Centre is closed.

Please note, the Visitors’ Centre will closed on Saturday, July 20, for our annual FunFest event in Kincardine, and Wednesday, July 24, for a private event.

The final bus tours of the season will be Thursday, Aug. 29.

Important information

  • You should arrive 45 minutes before your scheduled tour to watch our welcome video and be screened by Bruce Power Security officers.
  • Walk-in spaces are not guaranteed, so pre-registering is highly recommended. Walk-ins must be at the Visitors’ Centre no later than 45 minutes prior to the bus tour and must register at the front desk if space is available.
  • Participants over 18 must present valid government-issued photo ID (no health cards) before the bus tour begins. Photocopies and phone-based ID are not accepted. Those under 18 require their identity to be verified by an adult in their group.
  • Cameras, cell phones, laptops and bags/purses are not allowed on the bus tour and should be left in your vehicle.
  • Pets are not allowed in the Visitors’ Centre or on the bus tour, unless clearly marked as a support animal. 
  • Bottled drinking water is available for free at the Visitors’ Centre and can be taken on the bus tour. A water station for refillable containers is also located in the Exhibit Hall.
  • Should you require an accessible bus, a week’s notice is required and depends on availability of our bus contractor company.
  • Confirmation emails will be sent for every registrant. Please check your junk mail, as they are often routed there, especially with Hotmail.
