Maligne Lake is Jasper’s oldest attrac­tion. It is the largest lake in the Canadian Rockies, and was known to the Stoney Indians as Chaba Imne-Great Beaver Lake. A one and a half hour boat cruise will take you past glacier studded mountain peaks to world famous Spirit Island. Unsurpassed for the scenery it affords, this cruise is also known for its inter­pret­ive quality. While sailing Maligne’s glacial waters you will learn about the natural world of the Canadian Rockies as well as the area’s fascin­at­ing cultural herit­age.

At world famous Spirit Island passen­gers disem­bark for the short walk to the viewpoint. The restaur­ant and store at the lake are open from spring till fall, so is the cruise.
