We booked our four hour Many Glacier Boat Cruise and hike to Grinnell Lake well in advance. The threatening weather cleared just in time for our 2pm cruise. Marah was our skipper and naturalist guide. First we cruised up Swiftcurrent Lake past a bull and cow moose that were feeding on water plants on the edge of the lake. After... More

Do the Glacier Boat Tour trip from Many Glacier Hotel, with the walk to Grinnell Lake, but do NOT do the early morning Ranger led hike to Grinnell Glacier. Because I did the ranger led trip, I did not get the "normal tour" by the boat operators, they only do it on the trip across the lakes, not on the... More

We walked up and purchased our tickets for the Lake McDonald cruise about 20 minutes prior to departure; the fellow working in the ticket office was quite friendly. The weather was absolutely perfect: it was a calm, clear day with an almost perfect reflection of the mountain scenery in the lake itself. Worth mentioning is the bald eagle that was... More

We had the opportunity to take several boat trips--all were well done and worth it. Be sure to book in advance. You really see and hear things you would not have noticed. Captains and guides were all fantastic!

We were blessed to be able to take several tours and hikes on our vacation in Glacier National Park, but if you should find yourself here with time and money short the St. Mary boat tour with the ranger led hike to the falls is a great value and experience. St. Mary Lake is the most beautiful of all that... More

We did the boat ride at Many Glacier. This involved two boats on adjacent lakes with a 15 minute hike in between. Beautiful lakes. The operators were very appropriate and fun. There is an opportunity to do some longer hikes and take the boat back. Lakes are beautiful.

We took the Swiftcurrent and Josephine Lakes boat trip with the guided hike to Grinnell Lake. You can also take a longer hike to the Grinnell Glacier. We took the boat as a nice thing to do, but also to cut some distance and time off the hike. Our walk leader, Eric, was informative and very entertaining and the walk... More

We reserved tickets for both the Swift Current boat and Two Medicine so that we could cut a few miles off our hike and thought it would add to the “experience”. Pros-Being able to reserve ahead of time was a big plus. Hiking to Grinnell Glacier we were able to get the 8:30 boat which put us on the trail... More

My family and I took the Many Glacier Boat tour across Swiftcurrent Lake and Lake Josephine with the guided hike to Grinnell Lake. The guide made everyone feel comfortable with the pace was easy enough for the group, we did have a lot of people on the group -- but it was very nice and we even got to see... More

The boat guides were all great, we did the ranger-led hike from Many Glacier boat dock to Grinnell Glacier. The boat takes a mile or two off the total hike distance which is great. The views are lovely of course and the boat is fine ride. However, the boats' capacity are only about 50 people so we had to wait... More
