Lake Minnewanka lies in the heart of the Canadian Rockies in Banff National Park, a short 15-minute drive from the town site. Lake Minnewanka Boat Tours operates three 48-passenger tour boats on the lake, several times daily from mid-May to mid-October. The cruise consists of a 1.5 hour interpretive tour of Lake Minnewanka and the stunning surrounding area.

The friendly and experienced crew guide you on your lake cruise, pointing out the rich history of the area, both in its native folklore and geology. The crew will help disabled passengers onto and around the boat, and provisions are made for those with wheelchairs. You will learn about the wildlife and vegetation that inhabit these mountains, the early explorers who named them, and the tremendous forces that created them.
