We took the tourist boat trip to Spirit Island, the weather was fantastic. You will not be disappointed it is the most amazing location. Wait to take photos after the boat has docked and you have walked along to the little island, if the weather is good they will look professional ones!

Taking a boat tour to Spirit Island was a highlight of our visit to Jasper NP! Getting to walk lakeside near it and take photos was priceless. Highly recommend visiting. Late afternoon is best for photography. Getting to the Maligne Lake takes about an hour drive from Jasper but there are multiple photo opportunities along the way, so planning for a day-trip makes good sense. There are tour operators where you can buy custom packages for your trip.

I saw Spirit Island (actually it was a peninsula due to the water level when I visited) on the boat tour but if time permits and you are energetic you can go by canoe. There are no roads there and the sides of the lake look too steep for an easy hike. It was very quiet at the island and you can photograph it from a platform or a short trail nearby. The area farther along the lake is off limits to motor craft but it looks spectacular.

Lovely boat ride to reach this scenic destination, but honestly, Spirit Island is a peninsula that at this time of year, did not resemble an island. Well worth the trip!

For the price of this 90 minute boat tour ($61.95 CAD), our group were very disappointed! We felt like we were on a conveyer belt moving into the boat, listening to a droll commentary, walking on land for 10 mins only, and then shepherded back into the boat and back to dock. The driver was on his cell phone for some of the journey which was inappropriate. Don't waste your money on this - there are better things to do around Jasper - for alot less $$.
