Owner description: The Maligne Lake Cruise has been providing visitors with the opportunity to discover the world-famous Spirit Island for over 60 years through interpretive boat cruises in Jasper National Park. Visitors can explore the lake from the comfort of glass-enclosed and heated cruise boats while a knowledgeable guide retells Maligne’s history and explains its geology, wildlife, weather, flora and fauna. Make your visit even more memorable with our guided fishing, canoe and kayak rental experiences.

Well worth the money. Read a previous reviewer who complained about the view and $. Well the view is different from out in the middle. You are then surrounded by mountains 360. We did spirit island tour and really enjoyed the trip. Forget our guides names but they were boyfriend and girlfriend. Did a great job. Would recommend this trip to all that enjoy nature and beauty. We ate in the restaurant there and it was very good. Nice gift shop and bathrooms were clean.

Dear debkayscu,
I strongly agree that what you can experience out in the middle of the lake is much different than what you see from the shore. Being surrounded on all sides by towering peaks is indescribable. Fantastic to hear you enjoyed your cruise. Thank you so much for your recommendation.
We hope to see you again!

We went on the second last day of the season. It was a great intimate tour with around 10 passengers on the cruise. Alexis is such a great guide. The scenery was unreal. We had a fabulous time.

I'm delighted to see what you've written about Alexis and about your cruise. I think Alexis is a very personable and upbeat guide and I'm sure it's very rewarding to her to see such positive comments. I'm happy you had a lovely, intimate tour.

We were a party of six, from UK and this was part of our schedule, travelling from Jasper to Calgary and we weren't disappointed.

Our two hosts were Sarah and Kelly and they were both excellent, giving detailed information about the lake and able to answer any questions.

Would highly recommend. We were also extremely fortunate that there had just been a a fall of snow and this just added to the beauty of the lake and the mountains.

Dear Rod M,
Fresh snow can absolutely make for some great photos. Being in the mountains and at a higher elevation we see our fair share of snow. I'm glad you had the true mountain experience. Thank you for your lovely words about the cruise and for acknowledging the efforts of your crew.
Thanks for your review!
