We spent our birthday weekend in Sandpoint last weekend, and went on the Sunset Dinner Cruise on Thursday night and the Historical Cruise on Friday morning. The entire staff was friendly, knowledgdable, and accommodating. Lake Pend Oreille is absolutely beautiful at any time of day, so if you get a chance to take one of these tours aboard the Shawnodese,... More

We found the cruise and the cruise staff to be delightful. We saw a number of eagles and their nests. The food was delicious. The other people on board were gracious and friendly. We highly recommend this experience.

Our 4th of July history cruise aboard the Shawnonese on Lake Pend Oreille well worth the time and money. The lake is enormous, so the cruise only covers a small portion, but we learned so much about the geologic history of the lake. We spotted eagles, and learned some great nature factoids. The history of the lake is interwoven with... More

We took the Clark Fork Delta tour on a chilly, rainy September day. Well worth the time, and the drive to East Hope. Getting there was half the fun, in fact. Scotchman Peak is nearby, and makes for a challenging hike. This is the prettiest lake I've been on. Blankets, food, hot drinks are all available. All three of the... More

We took the Clark Fork Delta Cruise in cooler than normal weather for September, but it was amazing in spite of the chill in the air. The crew handed out warm blankets and did everything they could to keep us warm, safe and well informed about the boat AND history related to the area. Food, snacks and beverages were available...

I so wanted to give this cruise 5 stars. Several days prior to cruise I communicated with Linda by email. Her responses were very prompt and when I decided to book she simply asked for my phone number and emailed me directions to East Hope, which is where the cruises begin in the fall and spring. When we arrived we... More

The Shawnodese is a wonderful boat. Linda and the staff are super friendly. We arranged for our large party to dine on the boat on July 4th. It was so pleasant being on the water and seeing the bald eagles in the pine trees. There is nothing more heavenly than cruising Lake Pend Oreille. It was an unforgettable afternoon and... More

The directions online are pretty vague - we read that it said turn right on bridge street off 1st ave at the boat launch......we had a tough time finding the boat launch! An online map showing which way to walk would be a great help. We flagged down the sherriff and he told us where to go! the four of... More
