    What to Expect
    Banff National Park offers mountain views unlike anywhere else in North America. Turquoise lakes, old-growth pines, and towering granite peaks surround a green valley filled with diverse wildlife, including deer, eagles, and coyote. Lake Minnewanka provides a beautiful place in the park to explore and discover some of these natural wonders.
    Your cruise on the lake starts at the dock, a short drive from the town of Banff. On board, your guide shares stories of the submerged town of Minnewanka Landing and the people who used to call the surrounding area their home.
    As the captain navigates deeper into the mountains, see if you can spot bald eagles hunting for fish or a black bear foraging along the shore. Reach Devil's Gap, where the boat pauses so that you can fully admire the scenery.
    The boat then circles around and returns to shore where you will disembark back at the dock.
    Please note: During the busiest part of the summer, boats depart every 30 minutes. During off-peak hours, boats depart every hour during the day.

    Had a lovely time with my husband this sunny afternoon. He caught this pic of one of our captains (who also narrated)as we returned to the dock. Nice crew, be sure to listen to the narrator who is funny & very informative!

    The narrated boat ride was enjoyable. Visbility was good from the windowed cabin. The lake is long and thin, and we traveled about half-way down it before turning around. The narrator described the history and geology of the area.

    You just make it on the 8th! Looks like the last day of the cruise is Oct. 9th (I read it from the info. above about the cruise)…….. "September 19 - October 9: 10am - 5pm, Departs Hourly"
