Boat Tours

Add to my moments

See the Canadian Rockies from a different perspective by taking a Banff Lake Cruise on the pristine Lake Minnewanka. The lake is 28 kilometres long, and the only lake in Banff National Park open to public motorized boating. 

As you glide over the emerald waters and beside dramatic mountains you will be given an interpretive presentation about the unique cultural and archeological history of the area. Learn about why the First Nations’ name for the lake is “Lake of the Water Spirits” and what happened when a dam was constructed and a local settlement submerged. 

Hour long tours are available from mid-May to mid-October.
