Our family of four (including young child in a wheelchair) took this tour on Lake McDonald and had the most darling Ranger as our guide. She was enthusiastic and so knowledgeable and excited to share her knowledge -- her delight was infectious. We did this our first day in Glacier and are glad because of how much we learned, which...

On a cloudy damp day at the Park, there was no rain at Lake McDonald and we found respite in the boat tour. While the tour is okay, the guide made our day brighter with his informative talk sprinkled with humorous tidbits. A very enjoyable trip!

On my way to hip replacement so I appreciated the Many Glacier boat ride which got me to the one mile hike to Grinnell Lake. Two separate boat rides with a quarter mile hike in between with glorious mountains all around. Had a large bull moose cross our path on the hike about 15 feet away and he just meandered... More

We took the boat tour of Lake McDonald and also the Two Medicine Flats boat and Many Glacier boat, the last 2 with naturalist led hikes. All were great- the guides were funny, nice and informative. We learned a lot about the park on all 3 trips. My favorite was the Swiftcurrent Lake trip where you take one boat to... More

We took the Many Glacier boat ride including the Grinnell Lake guided walk. Our guide was excited to tell us all about the lake, the glaciers, rocks, etc. We enjoyed every minute.

Glacier National Park has a huge ground to cover. The best way to experience this park is hiking. thank god for this boat company! Me and husband boarded Sinopah at two medicine lake area for the two medicine lake trail and the next day at Lake Swiftcurrent for Grinnel glacier trail. Boat ride saved us several miles of hiking. It... More

I did 2 boat rides; one in St. Mary's Lake that had a trail guige to St. Mary's falls and then we continued onto Virginia Falls which was breath taking. The second ride was on Two Medicine Lake with a trial hike to Upper 2 Medicine Lake. I recommend them both and the boat drivers do an excellent job of... More

We took the 2pm boat tour and guided hike to Grinnell Lake from the Many Glacier Hotel over Labor Day weekend. You actually get two boat rides (each way) with this trip - over both Swiftcurrent and Josephine Lakes. The scenery is stunning. I couldn't stop taking pictures. Our guided hike was informative and fun! The views at the lake... More

We boarded the "Sinopah" in mid-afternoon and took a very pleasant ride to the western end of Two Medicine Lake. The crew was great and provided some very interesting narration of what we were seeing. I appreciated the fact the narrator did not talk constantly. After leaving the boat we took a mile hike into Twin Falls which is a... More

The one hour Lake McDonald boat rides sell out early. Buy your tickets in the morning or the day before. This is a pleasant cruise but I wish there had been more than six people allowed on the upper deck. If you can't sit there get a seat in the open sections of the front or back for the best... More
