We were lucky to have taken the cruise on such a nice day! Not a single cloud in the sky, the mountains were fantastic. The trip was fun thanks to Amber and Kate(keep up the good job!;) ) it was worth the money.

We had an amazing time on the Maligne Lake Cruise, even though it started out on the wrong foot, which was entirely our fault. We had our trip booked for departure at 3pm on October 2, 2018. We misread the time on our tickets and...More

A beautiful boat ride on one of the prettiest lakes in North America. There was fresh snow on the mountain caps, surrounding pine trees and boulders. Can't think of a more picturesque way to spend the afternoon.More

Dear Brendan S, I think that sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon, too. It's always spectacular but even more so when there is a dusting of snow on the peaks. Thanks so much for coming out with us and thanks for your...More

Guides Duncan and Mya were excellent and very informative. Boat trip was a pleasant cruise out to Spirit Island and back and the surrounding scenery was very calm, quiet and serene. Crossovers of wakes created from other boats was an interesting situation but nonetheless fun....More

We did this cruise as part of a package. The scenery was beautiful, the lake was turquoise near spirit island. A very informative narration, the guide was happy to answer questions. It is hard to believe the lake freezes over to about 1 metre depth...More
