make sure you have enough space on your phone or camera as you cannot stop taking photos of the scenery. this is definitely a must if you are in the Banff area.

Good lake and mountain view and cruise experience. Waited longer than expected (arrived around 10:00a but next cruise is 12:00), though...

Would do this again. What a fantastic way to spend some time on the water rather than on the shore, and you get to see sights you cannot see from land.

Sat October 7, was a perfect sunny day. The Captain tour guide and his pilot were competent, well organized and very knowledgeable. This lake is a must do!

Beautiful area. Was bone aching cold day but much warmer in the boat. Our guide and driver were casual, funny and entertaining. Disappointed no wildlife to be seen but know that can't be controlled. Relaxed hour on the water.

Nice way to see the lake and was wheelchair accessible too. It was a bit noisy at the back of the boat and we couldn’t hear the commentary but otherwise was a good trip
