Booking Maligne Lake Cruise in October?


I am spending the day in Jasper on the 30th September for one night before heading down the Icefields Parkway the next day.

The Maligne Lake cruise to Spirit Island looks great and has kept popping up on my research in the area.

I was wondering if anyone could offer thoughts on if I had to book at this time of year? Slightly concerned if the weather is not great then i'll probably want to give it a miss - I'd read that late Sept/Early Oct could be a bit hit and miss? However if its glorious then I'd probably wish I had!!

it does get busy but late sept may be ok but not on a wed when its very busy. I've done it in all sorts of weather and Maligne Lk is higher than Jasper so you really never know until your there. If there are lots of low clouds that would hinder some of the view but its still a nice cruise. If you only need one or two tix and can be there early in morning then I think you'd be fine.
