North Cascades Institute is great. Tour was great great captain and crew. I did hear that there was no backup captain to pull the passenger boat to safety in an emergency this weekend due to poor management decisions. It was very windy. Wish i would have known that before I got on. Kudos to the crew operating under such pressure.

Book your tour well ahead of when you want to go as the morning tours that include lunch fill up quickly in the summer. We ended up on an afternoon tour as the mornings were sold out on the days we could go. The lake and setting is stunning. The boat is clean and comfortable. There is some outside seating which was nice on a warm summer day. The information presented on the tour is interesting, though some of the presentation is a little cheesy. The actual boat ride is not all that long (a little over an hour), but the beautiful scenery on a lovely day was quite enjoyable.

We took the afternoon boat tour and enjoyed it. Very informative talk by the North Cascades NP Ranger Amos and the Environmental Institute representative Billy. Boat ride was smooth and scenic and beautiful. Very much worth it.

The drive across the dam was fun and gives one and excellent view of the lake from another perspective. We were just day tourists, so there was nothing at the institute for us except to walk around and look at it. The tours were not running the day we were there. I would recommend booking the boar tour or taking a course/workshop at the institute, otherwise there is really no reason to go there

We decided to take one of the many courses offered by the Institute and were very pleased with the course, the setting, the food and the entire experience. Learning about Crows, Ravens, Magpies and Jays from two amazing experts was enjoyable, entertains and educational. We love the remote beauty and the smoke free and cell phone free campus. We plan to return for more educational opportunities. This is a great environment for families and learning!
