  • This is one of the most beautiful sightseeing trip when your in Banff National Park. Staff is kind and professional. The boat is clean and overall it feels premium. Highly recommended.

  • Incredible place which is different every time you come here!

  • Less than a minute drive from Two Jack lake. Nice to stop by after stopping at Two Jack first.

  • 10 min drive from downtown Banff. Not a super crowded lake, wonderful view for some nice photo ops. Good spot for a picnic and to get away from ten rush of Banff downtown. Motor boat rental available for $80 an hour.

  • Glass blue lake water under the sunshine, amazing view and the boat trip is also nice
