Cruise enhanced our park experience. Fun to see the MT and Alberta border how it is marked. View different in each direction, guides excellent on board. Looked for wildlife, saw eagles and deer. Geology was interesting upclose. Beautiful sunny day

For 19 years, I'd look at a refrigerator magnet showing the the view we once saw at Waterton Lakes and imagine returning for a boat trip "into" that scene. Daydream come true. The personable and enthusiastic tour narrator was part of the family-owned business. He...More
