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

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.
