Relax in nature's beauty as we cruise upon two pristine lakes in Swiftcurrent and Grinnell Valleys. Several of the Glacier National Park's larger glaciers are visible from this boat tour. Departure begins from the dock lakeside of the Many Glacier Hotel. All boat tours include a cruise on the Chief Two Guns across Swiftcurrent Lake, a steep 400-yard walk to the Morning Eagle and a cruise across Lake Josephine.  At the head of Lake Josephine you may choose to remain on board and return to the hotel area or take advantage of hiking and picnicking destinations in Grinnell Valley.
