Lots of information. Interesting historical insights. Some good wildlife spotted. Easy location. Good views from the boat. Good value.
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
Great fun for all ages. The crew were really friendly and knowledgable about all aspects of historic Lake Pend Oreille. Fascinating accounts of the Lake and Sandpoint. Refreshments were available and the kids enjoyed being able to steer the Shawnodese and to be Captain of the Day complete with certificates.
Disappointed. We made reservations months in advance. Our whole party couldn't sit together. Where some of our party was sitting was right above the very hot, loud, exhaust smelling engine. No refund was given. Rudeness from the staff. Sad but this will be our last time taking this cruise.
We are very sorry to hear of your unhappy experience. We ask that passengers arrive 30 minutes prior to departure on our dinner cruises so we can comfortably accommodate everyone and push off on time. Your group arrived one minute prior to departure. Out of courtesy to the other guests who were on time, we had to go ahead and... More
A cruise around the lake on this boat is a great way to spend some time with a big family - all ages will appreciate the bird watching cruise - 1.5 hours to see osprey and eagles - and a wonderful first-mate Linda who has a wealth of knowledge about the area.
This was our first visit to Lake Pend Orielle, and it was the perfect day for it - sunny and mild. The crew of the boat was friendly and welcoming, and full of information about the lake and delta. The cruising is slow, so no need to worry about motion sickness, and you get plenty of time to look around... More
