Maligne Lake Cruise
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Pass By: Brewster Sightseeing, 100 Gopher Street, Banff National Park, Alberta T1L 1J3 Canada
Stop At: Maligne Lake Rd. 44 km southeast of Jasper, Jasper National Park, Alberta Canada
Your 90-minute cruise of the lake starts dockside near the Maligne Lake Boathouse and Chalet. Boats leave approximately on the hour and your ticket is good for any trip during your selected day. After boarding, you will pull away from the dock and be treated to a fully narrated, interpretative tour of the area's unique history and special ecology. Each boat is glass enclosed and fully heated, ensuring you will stay warm while experiencing majestic views throughout the trip.
From Spirit Island, which is only accessible by boat near the center of the lake, you will be treated to some of the most spectacular views found anywhere in the world. Jagged, snow-capped peaks ring a lake of vibrant blue water and ancient forest. Wildlife regularly prowl the shoreline, so keep your camera close and your senses alert as you scan the area for the eagles, bears and deer that call this area home. Expert and amateur photographers alike will be treated to incredible opportunities to attempt to document the natural splendor surrounding them, all the while recognizing that no photograph can do justice to the alpine scenery surrounding them.
Each cruise last approximately 90 minutes, after which you will return to the boathouse where you can grab a warm beverage or bite to eat from the nearby lodge and chalet.

Our Ontarion tour guide Stephanie and captain Kasey who kept us entertained throughout Maligne lake cruise.
Maligne Lake is lovely, especially as you approach the far half where the water is such a gorgeous blue, so it was no surprise that we had a great time. The glaciers are truly awesome as well. The highlight of the trip for us was the expert commentary by Andrew, who is funny, articulate, and very knowledgeable. He delivered his spiel in a manner that didn’t make it sound like he had done it a million times before, though he has. He was also able to intelligently field random questions from passengers. He is clearly passionate about the lake, its history, and the ecology of the region, as well as the native groups in the area. He showed genuine interest in the passengers, taking the time to ask about each of us. Francois is equally knowledgeable, I’m sure though we didn’t hear as much from him. I highly recommend this cruise, and I give Andrew rave reviews as well Mardy and C/hris
We had a beautiful experience yesterday on our cruise..Kelli and Scott were very friendly and informative.Scenery is fantastic..Thanks to Krystal for helping us get the voucher and making trip happen..Definite must see in the Canadian Rockies!
Tour was excellent. We took the 2 hr one. Meg and Maria were very professional and knowledgable. Would recommend.
The Maligne Lake Cruise shouldn't be missed. magnificent scenery..... One piece of advice book your cruise ahead, boats were completely booked when we arrived. It's a long beautiful drive out to the lake but knowing your cruise time ahead reduces stress and who needs that when traveling.... Staff was knowledgeable and friendly. If your in Jasper you've got to go !!!.
Great cruise, the scenes was beyond belief! So beautiful, and the guides were very informative. highly recommend.
This was a beautiful trip but unfortunately it did not start out well. The booking company we checked in with was not familiar with Viator and did not know how to book our vouchers. It took about 45 minutes to get it worked out. Eventually we ended up with a booking and had a wonderful boat trip.
The scenery is breathtaking. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and personable, EXCEPT neither knew that Spirit Island was the picture on the back of the Canadian 20 bill a few years ago. This is important and interesting information to share with the many visitors to Maligne Lake.
Great and friendly guides, and beautiful views of Spirit Island!
