I would have preferred a smaller boat, more time around the Spirit Island area, plus the option to canoe or kayak at that end of the lake.

National geographic worthy views and pictures. Took the cruise to spirit island and loved every second of it. The blue waters and snow topped mountains to the secluded Island. It was a magical experience.

We were lucky to have taken the cruise on such a nice day! Not a single cloud in the sky, the mountains were fantastic. The trip was fun thanks to Amber and Kate(keep up the good job!;) ) it was worth the money.

Great way to see the lake. It's a scenery overload, it was clear and sunny on our day with snow on the ground so looked awesome. The boat ride is good and popular judging the bus loads that arrive. Great way to see nature, I...More

A beautiful boat ride on one of the prettiest lakes in North America. There was fresh snow on the mountain caps, surrounding pine trees and boulders. Can't think of a more picturesque way to spend the afternoon.More

Dear Brendan S, I think that sounds like a great way to spend an afternoon, too. It's always spectacular but even more so when there is a dusting of snow on the peaks. Thanks so much for coming out with us and thanks for your...More
