The cruise is lovely (a touch expensive, but worth it for the unique views), winding from one end of Maligne lake to the other (and back, in 80 minutes), and of course Spirit Island is fantastic, as are the ranges all around. For the photographer in you there are few places that can equal the beauty on display! There are,... More

The day was sunny and clear, the natural beauty of the lake spoke for itself. The sense was we heard for what we got was it's a 'a rip off' said a couple of tourists to us. The tour guide positive and knowledgeable. The issue is $64 per adult for 80 minute boat ride and 10 minutes to walk onto... More

This was a very nice little cruise down one of the most beautiful lakes in Canada. I would say that for the money, they should have a little more dynamic tour guide who would give more of the history of the place, etc. Spirit Island is mainly a photo op, and a great one. I'm glad we did it, but... More

We ordered our tickets online for the Maligne Lake Cruise as a package combined with the Jasper Tramway (called "Do the Two") prior to arriving in Canada. Check in at the office at the lake on the day of our cruise was easy and the staff was friendly and helpful. Boarding was prompt and smooth. The captain operated the boat... More

I was passed by your staff shuttle at 6:30 or so the other night on a blind hill/corner at Medicine Lake. I think the limit is 60- we're doing 65, and your team much faster. Passed two more cars ahead of us too. Must be in a hurry! The vehicle is wrapped with "Maligne Lake" all over it. If you're... More

What an experience! Beautiful views and a great tour guide. She was very informative and enthusiastic which made it even more fun. Expensive tour, but enjoyed if and learned a lot about the area. I think we were the only Canadians on the cruise which made me appreciate once again how beautiful our country is - wow, incredible scenery! Definitely... More

This boat tour was part of our tour package with Orbridge. You will never forget seeing Spirit Island, the destination on this short 1 hour tour traversing Maligne Lake 30 minutes outside of the town of Jasper. A large photo of Spirit Island hung in Grand Central Station, NY for some time and has been photographed I'm sure for countless... More

We enjoyed an afternoon drive up to Maligne Lake. On the way up we saw a black bear with two cubs eating grass on the side of the road and a number of wild sheep. Deer were hanging around the dock area!! The boat ride was amazing as we went up the lake to Spirit Island and back. It is... More

As an owner of a lake house and boat we did not think we needed to pay for a boat ride to look at the mountains. We were wrong. This was well worth the money. I learned more about the region, saw more glaciers that you can not see from the shore and learned the history of the famous Spirit... More

This cruise was a trip I'd wanted to take for some time, and I wasn't disappointed. While I'd have liked to have a bit more time at Spirit Island, I still had time to take plenty of beautiful photos. The guide, Dan, and the captain, Katie (I think) were both very pleasant. It was a very nice way to see... More
