Banff Lake Cruise - Lake Minnwanka

My dad was visiting from Ontario recently and I decided to take him on the Banff Lake Cruise on Lake Minnewanka. I have been to Lake Minnwanka many times, but I've never had the opportunity to take the boat cruise; so this was the perfect opportunity! We got a ride on the "Sandra Lynne":


Lake Minnewanka means "Water of the Spirts" and is the largest lake in Banff National Park. It is located a 15 minute drive from Banff and has some of the most amazing views in the Banff area. Brewster runs a lake cruise giving people the opportunity to see parts of the lake that you are only able to see via boat, providing us with some incredibly unique photos. The cruises run from mid-May - mid-October and are an interpretive tour. We learned about the area's vegetation, wildlife and history; including stores of the First Nations people and early explorers who have made the area what it is today.

It was a cloudy day, but this is the view at the end of the lake:
