Fortunately the weather was perfect for this hour and a half cruise. Nice relaxing trip with good commentary. Stunning views. Would definitely recommend it.

Dear Linda M,
There's nothing like a relaxing cruise down the lake with fantastic weather. We appreciate your comments about the interesting commentary though Mother Nature gets the credit for the stunning views. Thanks for your review!

It's a 30 minute boat ride from the dock to the place where Spirit Island is. We were given time to walk around and take pictures of one of the most photographed places in Canada. The only negative I can think of is that the trip was really expensive, and the guide on the boat clearly expected a tip as we disembarked.

Relaxing and beautiful ! Trevor and Kai did a great job with navigating my and narration and answering everyone’s questions. If you have a tendency toward seasickness ( which I sadly do) - no worries!!! The lake is calm and the boat smooth and not bumpy . The lake itself is beautiful. We stopped at spirit island which is also beautiful and there were facilities to use near the island. Each way was about 35 minutes and you can get off and look around for a few minutes when we stop at spirit Island. Highly recommend. The luncheon at maligne lake chalet up the hill from the boathouse was delicious with an amazing view and buffet also not to be missed.

Dear gottalovdogs,
I'm glad you found the cruise to be smooth - for guests who are prone to seasickness it's a great comfort to know that our cruise is a lot like riding in a bus and is generally fairly agreeable. Thanks for your lovely comments about Trevor and Kai and also about the buffet. All in all, I'm happy you had a great visit to Maligne Lake.
