We drove to where you pick up the tour boat and I was initially a little disappointed at the look of Maligne Lake, it didn't look as blue as I expected it to. Well after about 5 minutes on the boat the water magically changed to that gorgeous aqua blue colour! The landscape sailing along on the water is just... More

The scenery is amazing and the guides were great. So many great photos and video! We didn't quite have enough time on Spirit Island but other than that, it was a fabulous trip!

Maligne Lake tour was beautiful but rounding the bend then getting sight of Spirit Island you thought 'oh is this it?'. We got off the boat walked around the shore line for maybe 10mins but were not allowed on the actual Island, which was a tiny spit of land. Then it was the return trip. Maligne Lake itself was lovely... More

On our way to the Canadian Rockies and the two day Rockies Mountaineer train journey, the Spirit Island was the highlight of the journey. It is situated on Maligne Lake and when you reach the island by boat, the sight that one experiences is incredible, so serene, so calm and breathtaking sight. The island is surrounded by the beautiful snow-capped... More

You reach Spirit Island (which isn't really an island) by boat from the head of Maligne Lake. The boat trip is great and the view from Spirit Island has everything from glaciers to fir trees and mountains to glacial blue water.

We have visited Jasper several times but have never had time to visit the Maligne lake area until now. We took the boat trip to Spirit island and were so glad that we did. It was exactly like every photo we have ever seen of it and totally unspoilt. The boat trip was excellent and took about twenty minutes each... More

Love to walk around and see the landscape and lake. Went in Winter so it was more of a snowy adventure.

We thought the boat trip expensive compared to others, and Spirit Island over-rated. There are so many attractions in the area, this wouldn't be priority.

We were in Jasper National Park in August, 2015 and we would rate Spirit Island and the view from the boat trip was magnificent. This is one of the most beautiful places in North America. We enjoyed the boat trip and the guides were fantastic! Take the time to see this if the weather is nice and clear! Bruce and... More

A beautiful ride out on Maligne Lake, gorgeous scenery and well worth the time! Tour guides are very knowledgeable about the area and the mountain ranges that you see.
