This little cruise is well worth the cost. We happened to be there on a windy, cold day, but dressed appropriately. The narration aboard is very informative & the guide will answer any questions. Fun to see the cut out areas which are the borders between the US & CA. Enjoyed the brief stop at Goat Haunt, US, with a... More

Had a lovely afternoon cruising the lake. Sam the young tour guide knew his stuff, but talked way too fast for us to catch all of his thoughts. He spoke with a Canadian accent which our American ears hadn't yet adjusted to. The sights were so beautiful. The boat was very clean and has a great history.

Took the 10:00 am boat trip to Goat Haunt and back on Sept. 15. It was a spectacular, sunny and calm day on the lake (it is sometimes windy). Matt was our tour guide and did an exceptional job. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful mountains, gorgeous water, crossing the border, stop on US side and the entertaining and informative narration.... More

The weather wasn't the greatest for sitting on the open deck but the trip down the lake was fantastic. The scenery is incredible and the tour manager for the cruise was very interesting. He gave us the history in a very factual and humorous manner. He was very friendly and willing to answer questions as a group and later walked... More

The cruise took us to Goat Haunt, which is a very remote location on the US/Canadian border. The boat trip was very informative and quite enjoyable. There is a US Park Ranger who gives a brief presentation when you disembark in Goat Haunt. The presentation was interesting and worth our time. The views on shore are amazing.

After many visits to the park I finally went on this tour. I thought it was a little expensive but at the end it was a good value. The tour guide provides an excellent overview of the parks history, early beginnings and the geological history as well. It was a little cool as September is late season but fall colours... More

A cruise on the lake is a must do in Waterton Village. The boat cruises along the shore for possible animal sightings. We get off at the other end of the lake for a 30 minute break where the US border lies. Very pleasant and relaxing.

What an amazing experience. The cruise to Goat Haunt was spectacular. The scenery alone is worth the price of the cruise. Our guide, Jack I believe, was superb, keeping the commentary entertaining and interesting. Wish we had brought along our passports, just to get them stamped at the Goat Haunt Ranger Station. Highly recommend this cruise to anyone going to... More
