We had a great experience with the boat tour of Maligne Lake. To start we were late as we didn’t know that the lake was located 40km up Maligne Lake road (which is a 60km/h road) so allow yourself 45 minutes to travel the road. We missed our scheduled tour time so they ended up running one more tour which accommodates us as well as the overflow from the previous tour. Our tour guide Sam and boat driver Abigail were great! They are very knowledgeable and very good about accommodating our guest that has mobility issues.

The bus driver was really good he was funny and very knowledgeable and on time. The boat cruise was not bad but not as exapected they sailed us all the way out to spirt Island,Docked then told us we had 15 min to explore and the tour guides got to swim which we were told we couldnt when we called and asked questions?? Then they called us back when they were done swimming just to drive us back they did tell us alittle history and tried to keep things entertaining. I know it's not the campy fault but having screeming kids on the boat doesnt make it fun at all they should have a separate boat for Familys with kids or one for adults for a quick trip. I personally wont do this again but this is just my experience what happen SunDog tour company was good but the boat campy could do better. We did get some food when we docked but staff was abit rude and over priced all worried about covid but the cashier been touching people money ahead of us and then the cash register didnt even hand sanitize then opened both our liquar drinks with her dirty hands was not impressed.

First and foremost kessia is an amazing tour guide for the boat tour. Secondly luis is an amazing captain and boat driver. It was a super fun experience and a smooth ride. Even when we went out the back door while driving he made it a very smooth ride. Kessia was funny as heck but also very Knowledgable about the surrounding lakes and mountain ranges. So thank you both for making that experience worth it to me. As someone one who is extremely afraid of deep water and boats that was actually an amazing experience for me. -leland

In life, tours tend to be hit and miss. Sometimes too much information gets delivered in a monotonic soliloquy. Other times it is rushed and you leave the tour having learned nothing.

In steps Norm.

Norm, our guide and driver, has navigated the wilderness for decades (literally) and knows every story about every nook and craney. His warm demeanour from the get go helped bind a group of strangers, and Norm carefully chose pitstops to view certain areas of flora, fauna and natural landscape.

He was able to convey a vast amount of information effortlessly and in a fun manner, whilst leaving all guests very ample time to relax, let the scenes percolate in our minds and really enjoy the moment.

This is without a shadow of a doubt the most enjoyable tour ive ever had, and I was very sad to leave, having felt like Norm was a box of stories and information that is so volumous that we would all need another 10 days to collect all his gems. He is a true asset to the company, and Im sure they know that.

Anyway, this tour is incredible. Book it.

Thank you for your very humbling review of Norm. We certainly know the value of all our guides but Norm is certainly on another level. Please let us know the next time you are in Jasper we would love to host you on another tour.

One less star due to high cost. Went on this cruise this morning and had a great time with Cassia as our tour guide with Amelia as the captain. Super entertaining duo; Cassia did an excellent job of explaining the history and culture of this place, as well as the geography of the beautiful landscape. She answered all of our annoying questions happily. These two were much better guides than Steve and Trevor from Lake Minnewanka

We had a great time with Lutz (?) on our tour of Maligne Canyon, Medicine lake and Maligne Lake. We stopped often for photos and factoids. Didn’t see any bears or moose, but it wasn’t a wildlife tour so the birds and elk at the end were a bonus. We had already visited Maligne canyon the prior day, but he was giving us different information and perspective. We had a chance to get different photos (lighting). Liked the stories. Very friendly. Safe driving.

I enjoyed the cruise to Spirit Island, the captain Mark and Guide Nick just made this 30mins trips more fun.
It was lovely walked around the trial in front of the island.
The sky was smoked due to the south fire, but it also made the island looks more mysterious.

An amazing experience - exceptionally beautiful views - Luis was a great captain 👨‍✈️ on this trip while Kessia was a fabulous tour guide who has a great sense of humour AND was very knowledgeable regarding the area and the history. She answered all questions and was a wealth of information regarding the tour and Jasper in general. Would highly recommend this tour👍

What an amazing moment in Jasper. Our guide Jeff was REALLY nice and explain us a lot of interesting things about nature, mountains, wild life and more. The boat tour to the island was beautiful even if it was cloudy. Thank you so much!

My boyfriend and I completed this tour yesterday and we had the pleasure of having Lutz as our guide. His knowledge and personality made the trip an all around great experience. The scenery was beautiful and the history of the area was fantastic as described by Lutz. Learned about various trees, plants, and animal habits that were very interesting and useful. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the Jasper area for the first time.
