We lucked out as the weather was absolutely perfect for this cruise. The staff was also very knowledgable and cheerful
Stunning, stunning and stunning! Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic crew. Sam and Mo did a sterling job of describing what we were seeing. The scenery is wonderful the opportunity to get off the boat and walk around the area of Spirit Island was very special. It was topped with a sighting of a bear on the shore line, which made the trip absolutely magical. 10 out of 10 and will do this again when we're back in the Rockies.
Loved the tour. Brittany was very knowledgeable and friendly. Sam was a wonderful Captain. The lake is so beautiful. So glad we took the tour.
This is a great tour to go on so long as the weather is good. We had a beautiful clear and warm, sunny day. so everything was great. The location is beautiful and the commentary was interesting. Recommended
The day didn't start off the best as we were driving there it kept on raining on and off, there was also construction on the road to Maligne Lake, which we didn't know about until we were driving. When we got to Maligne Lake we were there early so I asked the girl if we could get on earlier and she was very accommodating. The sun came out and the tour guide said it was the best day she has seen in about a month. The sun helped to see a lot of the mountains and glaciers, I am glad I took my family.
I grew up looking at the giant poster of Spirit Island so yes we had high expectations from this boat ride. But we were stunned by the beauty of the Maligne lake. Views are fantastic and entry into the spirit island is dramatic. Other people on the boat didn't expect that. Wish we had more time there. It's a must watch!
At first, you might think the price is quite expensive, however cruise is much worthy.
I can see beautiful scenery with wonderful sky. Also, the guide is very kind.
Spirit island is also really beautiful!!
This tour was fantastic we were lucky enough to have a really sunny day and could ser the glaciers and all the scenery this was well organised and very informative
Had an excellent tour of Maligne Lake. Learned of the history, saw the beauty, and really enjoyed the afternoon. Will do again!
The beauty of this area is stunning. Our travel guide and boat captain were icing on the cake. If you are in this area, do not pass up this opportunity.
This is a MUST GO cruise. Spirit island is breathless beautiful. We had a really good time.
Pretty setting and wonderful tour guide. Even an xcellent gift shop.
Glad we did it
We had a great time on the Maligne Lake Tour. Spacious enclosed boats with good views. A well informed guide was on board who explained the interesting facts about the lake, mountain ranges etc. There was also another person driving the boat and she was very competent. Our only issue was some confusion regarding the departure place. We thought the tour left from the downtown Jasper address on the vouchers we printed from online. Fortunately we checked the day before and found that we had to make our own way to Maligne Lake. This information needs to be clearly indidcated as it is about an hour drive or you have to make reservations to go on the tour from the downtown office at further cost,
The boat tour was fantastic , however Viator never sent the day confirmation changes to the office down there, which made it difficult for us to book in when we got there.
We had an amazing trip, both of the staff on the boat we're very nice and the sights beautiful!
The only thing i would say is you need a little longger on spirit island, we did'nt have time to walk around the little walk, anyone old or Disabled could'nt do it in that short time.
Also enjoyed the Canoe on Maligne lake. We had a great day and a great Honeymoon!
