When our inbound flight changed it gave us an extra day and we decided to spend the afternoon in Sandpoint. After looking at things to do in TA we decided on Lake Pend Oreille Cruises. I called 3 weeks before we arrived and left a voice mail. Linda called me back a little later. I went over our flights with... More

We booked a private cruise for a customer appreciation event. Excellent staff, excellent service, wonderful evening cruise. We saw eagles, osprey chicks in their nest, great sunset. We will book again for our annual event!

Yesterday I took a group of 13 on an afternoon cruise with Lake Pend Oreille Cruises. It was fantastic. Linda, our host and guide, was terrific. She knows the history, geology, and geography of the area and presents it to the patrons in an interesting and engaging way. She also knows her birds. My entire group loved the experience.

Lake Pend Oreille Cruises offer a variety of interesting cruises. It's a great way to get out on the Lake while visiting Sandpoint, see the natural beauty, and learn about the area. Awesome!

This was a very pleasant way to spent an afternoon and learn about the lake and community. The captain was very friendly and the narrator was excellent. She mentioned a museum we went to and it was wonderful, the Bird Aviation Museum.

Just as the sun was going down on a summer evening, we boarded the boat with about 10 other passengers for a sundown cruise on the lake. Two hours later when we landed we had seen about 8-10 bald eagles, including 2 young ones in their nests, as well as many arms of the lake and its surrounding mountains, including... More

We had a great trip. We got see bald eagles and ospreys in abundance. The narrator was quite informative without being boring. They also made my son honorary captain for the day and let him drive forms few minutes. Great day!

Took the 2-hour cruise and saw bald eagles, eaglets and variety of water fowl as well as points of interest along the lake shore. Well worth the time!

During a recent visit, my group signed up for the birds of prey cruise. We did indeed see eagles and osprey. The crew was knowledgeable and friendly. There were refreshments on board and the crew went out of their way to make sure everyone was comfortable. It was also very affordable.

We had lunch at "Trinity", our Best Western Motel where we stayed right on the lake. Afterwards (around 1:30PM?) we took this cruise, which probably lasted about 1.5 - 2 hours? It was a very pleasant way to spend the afternoon. We were lucky; the weather was perfect. The crew, especially the "tour guide", was very informative. We got to... More
