My favourite tour!!! A must do for all! Beautiful scenery of Maligne Lake and Spirit Island. Was able to capture some pictures which looked like postcards. My friends couldn't believe they were real. Andy, the tour guide, was also very friendly and gave a lot of information about the Canadian Rockies.

The Maligne Lake Cruise was fantastic. It was a way to get another perspective of this beautiful area. It is a shame there wasn't a little more time on the island before turning around pack to the pier. The Transfer to and from the cruise was good, with the opportunity to see some sights along the way.
