We took the boat tours of Lake McDonald and Many Glacier. For Lake McDonald, it was nice and peaceful. The tour guide/captain gave some interesting info about the area, but most of the time was quiet, so it was just a nice boat ride for about an hour. As for the boat ride at Many Glacier Lodge, we used it... More

This is an easy, no-brainer choice for a great day boating out of the Many Glacier hotel. The young staff running the boats and guides are really friendly and knowledgeable. Ask them how they get the boat into the boathouse in the winter! You learn a lot and have a relaxing day. The Grinnell Lake 2-boat trip is an easy... More

We reserved our tour in the morning (around 10 maybe?) and went on the boat in the early afternoon (maybe 2pm?). The ride was beautiful and the tour guide gave a lot of information over some speakers. There was seating below with big windows a small deck outside and about 6 people at a time allowed on the upper viewing... More

Peaceful boat ride on Lake McDonald.. I would take the boat late in the day or early morning so you can get reflection pictures of the mountains in Lake McDonald. I was there when the fires from neighboring states obscured the views, but normally I believe the views are amazing. I had to change my original reservation date and time,... More

We did the short ride, it was a bit windy and on the cool side. Bring a light jacket if you go just in case. Good way to see the mountains and some of the trees destroyed by a prwvious fire , the captain was very informative

5 well maintained old boats (circa 1926) with young captains from all over the US (one local though) trained to give GNP history and local information. The boat tours give a perspective not able to be seen from the road.

What a wonderful way to see more of GNP. Our family reunion group of 17 all enjoyed our 1 1/2 hour boat cruise on Lake McDonald. This is a very relaxing and educational way to be on the water and enjoy the 360 degree views of the majestic mountains that surround you. Our captain was Chris and he was very... More

This was one of the highlights of our Montana vacation. Easy to make reservations and the boat workers were knowledgeable and so helpful. The trip over the lakes and to the Grinnell Glaciers was beautiful. Definitely a must do!

We took the boat ride that leaves the Many Glacier hotel. The first boat takes you across the Swiftcurrent Lake, then a short hike to another boat that takes you across Josephine Lake. The boat rides were extremely scenic and informational. Once across the second lake (Lake Josephine), we chose to take a short hike to Lake Grinnell. The hike... More
