The Experience

Join Waterton Inter-Nation Shoreline Cruise Co for a scenic cruise from Canada to the United States on the beautiful Waterton Lakes. Enjoy some of the most spectacular mountain scenery the Rocky Mountains have to offer. View majestic towering cliffs, unique geological formations, beautiful waterfalls, snow clad mountain peaks and the International Border. Bring your camera; tour boats make photographic and wildlife stops. Bald eagle, bear, moose, deer, mountain sheep and mountain goats are often seen.

The shoreline cruise vessels feature indoor and outdoor seating, twin powered motors for safety, and are Coast Guard Certified each year. The flagship is the Historic M.V. International which has been in service since 1927. Step aboard this classic vessel and cruise back into the history of the International Peace Park.

The cruise is accompanied by an informative and entertaining commentary given by experienced local tour guides. The majority of our crew will have served aboard Shoreline Cruise vessels for 5 or more years. In fact, some of our Captains have been with the company in excess of 20 years!

The duration of the cruise is 2 and ¼ hours, which includes a ½ hour stop at Goat Haunt – the northern gateway to Glacier National Park. Debark at this beautiful, sheltered, uncommercialized area to experience the visitor center which exhibits park history, flora and fauna. As Goat Haunt is a United States Class B Port of Entry, anyone planning to stay beyond the standard ½ hour stop to hike, will have to clear customs and will be required to display only accepted ID. Please click here for more details about crossing the border. The most popular hike at Goat Haunt is Kootenai Lakes. Kootenai Lakes is only 4 km from Goat Haunt and is considered some of the best moose habitat in Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park.

The People

Waterton Inter-Nation Shoreline Cruise Co. is a family business that began offering cruises on Waterton Lake in the mid-1950’s. Originally cruising aboard the small 25-passenger Original Miss Waterton, they have expanded their fleet over the years to its current size. The early 1970’s saw 48-passenger sister-vessels Roddy-Paul and Connie-Marlene put into service; the 125-passengerMiss Waterton began operating in 1984; and in 1986, we acquired our flagship, the 165-passenger Historic M.V. International, which was built on Waterton Lake in 1927.

With the third generation of family now beginning to play a more prominent role in operations, they continue to stress, more than ever, a friendly, outgoing, informative and entertaining commentary. Waterton Inter-Nation Shoreline Cruise Co continue to strive to offer the most experienced crew, and best quality boat tours in the Canadian Rockies!
