We took a 1:30pm ride on a Wednesday. We actually got there by 10:45am but the 11:00am ride was already full. Even the 1:30pm barely had any more seats left. Upon borading we found out only 6 out of 67 people can sit on the upper deck; the bow seating and standing room were limited too. Although the crew made... More

We really enjoyed the two hour cruise in a historic wooden boat. The Captain gave an informative talk about the influence of the Great Northern Railroad on the development of the park. The tour includes a short hike to a nice waterfall.

We took the St. Mary Lake cruise at 10am with optional St. Mary Falls hike. It was wonderful. We had a large group about 25 people. There was some good and not so good aspects of this. First the good, the scenery was spectacular and during the hike to St. Mary we saw a huge black bear. Not being a... More

We enjoyed the boat ride but made the mistake of getting off to take the Grinnell Lake hike. After walking it we arrived early to get on the return boat to take us back and there were lots of people waiting with us. At that point we realized that we might not make it on it but had waited already... More

It was absolutely breathtaking! The ride on the lake was comfortable and beautiful and the staff were very helpful. Special thanks to Sam. We even saw an eagle in flight. The hike wasn't too strenuous and Jenny our park ranger was fantastic. She answered everyone's questions and was very sweet and helpful. Highly recommend the whole thing.

This company operates all the cruises on various lakes in Glacier park. They also rent kayaks, row boats and (only at Lake McDonald and Two Medicine) motor boats. We took the Many Glacier and Two medicine cruise. two medicine is actually my favourite as there were very few people willing to get there it's a bit out of the way.... More

I rented a one-man kayak earlier today for the first time and I really enjoyed it. For just $15/hour, you really can't beat that. They are located off a dock on Lake MacDonald and are very helpful to boot. The two guys I dealt with were great and patient explaining the art of kayaking to a newcomer. They also have... More

We rented a kayak and a small power boat for an hour to go out on Lake McDonald. Enjoyed relaxing doing our own thing for an hour. This concession was very busy all day renting, paddleboards, kayaks, rowboats, etc. Prices were reasonable too.

We took the boat cruise from Swift current lake then on to lake Josephine. The crew onboard were very friendly and made it a very pleasant trip. The park ranger was highly informative. The hike to grinnell lake is not to be missed.

We took the Many Glacier Ranger Led Grinnell Lake tour. The boat captain and ranger were so very nice and informative. We really enjoyed our hike and having the ranger along really helped to inform you of what you were seeing and what you were going to see. It was even awesome that we got to see 3 moose(one was...
