Parked up and headed to the jetty to purchase tickets. It was already busy but we managed to get on the first trip of the day at 10.00 am. If you want this trip, be sure to arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Our boat ride was so beautiful, with lovely scenery, and the Capt. pointed out the International Boundary. Crew were very polite and helpful. You go through customs on the return trip and the crew helped with our questions on the forms. I would recommend this...More
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!
We too the boat tour in early September 2018. The scenery is beautiful, and we found it very comfortable even though the day was a bit on the cool side for summer. The boat has seats inside and also a covered area at the back...More
This is a 2 hour plus cruise on Lake Waterton Canada south into Montana. The trip is expertly narrated by the mates on the boat. You will see wildlife and receive plenty of information on the area and the rock formations in the mountains. Highly...More
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
This tour is a "must". The view of the mountains surrounding the lake spectacular. We were fortunate to be on the 90+ year MV International which added a nice memory for us. Tour guide Mathew was knowledgeable and entertaining. First stop was at the ticket...More

Your best bet is to call and ask, but based on my experience (on the oldest vessel), I'd have to say they aren't wheelchair accessible. The steep and narrow stairs are definitely not conducive to those with mobility issues... More
Your best bet is to call and ask, but based on my experience (on the oldest vessel), I'd have to say they aren't wheelchair accessible. The steep and narrow stairs are definitely not conducive to those with mobility issues. Also, on our visit the weather really pooped out, accessing the only dry and sheltered area was via those steep narrow stairs. There is also the issue of disembarking for the brief time on the American side of the lake, I believe you wouldn't be able to even access the washrooms due to a lack of ramps, etc.
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.
