We had a sunny, cool day. Absolutely beautiful. Make sure you take your camera. Very relaxing cruise with lots of gorgeous mountains. Probably not something for young children, unless they just riding in boats.

A must book boat trip on Maligne Lake and drop off at Spirit Island. The water is artificially aqua blue and glaciers abound on the surrounding mountain peaks.

Dear VacationerGP, Thank you so much for your recommendation of the cruise. I agree that the water has a look to it that doesn't even seem real. It's the most beautiful aqua you'll ever see. Hope to see you again! Michelle Booth Maligne Lake Cruise

We went there this summer. The cruise was really great with beautiful scenery and explanations from the guide. The company is environment-friendly limiting the number of boats on the lake at one time. I deeply recommend this attraction.
