This cruise was one of the highlights of our trip to Lethbridge and surrounding areas! Keith did an excellent job of explaining the history of the area. The beauty and splendour of this area is unmatched!

Was a chilly day when we went on our boat ride but I still had to sit on the top to see all the beautiful scenery and take pictures. They were very informative!

At $51 Canadian including tax, this was well worth the money for the 2 1/4 hour trip. We did get to cruise on the oldest wooden vessel, very cool (literally and figuratively). There weren't a lot of passengers this day so it was nice to...More

Capt. Tom and his crew of Mike and Matt provided us with a great cruise around the beautiful Lake Waterton. Mikes' narrative was the right amount of humor and information on the geology, history and the wildlife that lives within the park. The majestic 92...More

Thank you for the comments. I arrived at the Waterton Shoreline Cruise Co at 9:40 am on 9/4/2018 (day after US Labor day) and was able to get tickets for the 10:00 am cruise. The cruise boat filled to only about 30% capacity.
