You'll be hard pressed to find better camera worthy vistas than on this trip. Boat is cool. Water is beautiful. Glaciers look cool. It's a little pricey but worth it. They let my kids see how the boat drives. You can also go on the back of the boat and take great pictures but the staff do not manage who goes out there and inconsiderate passengers just squat out there the whole trip and the staff did not address it, so our family and others barely got anytime out there which was quite frustrating

Captain Sam and Bea were AMAAAAZING guides! It's a really fun trip, with so much history! Bring your binoculars to see moose and other wildlife because we saw a few moose drinking water while we made our way to the island. Even though there was smoke around the mountains when we went, it was still a breathtaking view!

Becca and Meg our boat cruise drivers were absolutely amazing coming from a former Jasper local! They were super knowledgeable and went above and beyond.
