Lake Pend Orielle is one of the most spectacular places in the Pacific Northwest. Seeing it on a vintage boat with great narration is a must do when in the area. Our group traveled 70 miles and were very impressed.More

I sent my daughter’s family in the history cruise and they loved the trip. They saw bald eagles... and had a great Bloody Mary and a delicious huckleberry drink. My grandson enjoyed a turn at the wheel.

This actually MADE our vacation! Reasonably priced. But seeing the beauty of the lake and birds—eagles, loon, ospreys! Fantastic. Then on return, learning of the lake’s history was the icing on the cake.
