Lake Minnewanka

Watch for wildlife, feel the fresh air, and get adventurous on Banff's largest lake. Our heated, covered boats mean you can explore in any weather. Join us every afternoon to sample some of the best local brews on our Beer Voyage cruise. Plus, stop by the Black Anchor Snack Shop for a picnic lunch before or after your cruise to make a day out of it. It just feels like summer out here! You will experience the towering peaks rise vertically from the emerald water's edge and on the shore amongst the forested pine and spruce, and for some, big horn sheep, bald eagles, ospreys, deer and even the occasional bear may be discovered. Along the way, our experienced captains who are most familiar with the history, geology, animals, park policy and native involvement in our area, will provide informative and entertaining commentary throughout the journey.

“We went on the 5 pm cruise and the views were beautiful. The stories were fun to hear from the guide. The water was beautiful and was another way to see the breathtaking scenery vs having to hike. We had done two very long hikes b2b so this was an excellent way to see the area. We were able to go a far distance down the lake and that was cool!”

“Wonderful boat tour on the lake in a mountain setting. The tour guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the lake and region. Boat captain was excellent and very safe.”
