Worth the drive any time
Oct. 2021 • Couples
The drive to the lake was worth it with opportunities to sightsee and hike along the way. The facilities at the lake were closed for the season but we enjoyed the visit. It probably would be best to go during the open season but we don’t regret going when we did. We saw lots of wildlife along the way to and from the lake. The highlight was the dozen or so moose we saw. It was amazing to see them within 20 feet of our car.

Maligne Lake Boat ride with Becca and Sam
Oct. 2021
This part of our adventure exploring Jasper was by far the most beautiful, fun, entertaining, and learning experience we had. All of the staff but especially Becca and Sam were awesome—very knowledgeable and we learned so much—Thank you to whoever hired these two young people, you did your company a great service. PS ish-nee-ish

Pricy but worth it
Sep. 2021
The price for this boat tour seemed (and still seems) high to me. That said, I'm glad we spent the money to do it.

The first part of the boat trip is relatively ho-hum (for Banff/Jasper that is....) but is spiced up with good commentary from the boat tour guide. And I really appreciated the fact that, unlike some other tours we were on, the guide was not attempting to be a stand-up comedian or pep rally cheerleader.

Once you get near spirit island things really improve. The view there is stunning. The 15 minutes they give you on shore is more than enough to take in the view and get any photos you might want.

Definitely the scenic highlight of the Jasper area.

Plus, we saw a good number of wildlife on the drive to and from the lake.

Exceptional!
Sep. 2021
An amazing tour that far exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide Sam and Captain Jordan R. were incredibly knowledgeable and engaging. Sam even recorded a video for a friends science class on the suspension of Rock Flour that she will share with her fourth graders in the U.S. The beauty of the lake and the story and views of Spirit Lake were captivating. What a great way to spend 90 minutes of our short time in Jasper.

This was a beautiful trip on the Maligne Lake, nice and calm. The scenery was spectacular and the water emerald green. We stopped to visit a sacred island, which was nice!

Neat and informative

Such a great little tour of Maligne Lake. Sam was very informative and Megan was such a great cautious Captain. They have a little waffle hut we had lunch at and the food was delicious as well. The kids loved getting on the back deck while cruising down the lake and the views were spectacular!

I went on the Maligne Lake tours in August 2021 with Sam as our captain, and Jordan R as our guide. The scenery was beutiful with the big lake and all the interesting info Jordan told us about the lake and its history. All the staff were super friendly, so this stop is a MUST!!!
