Lake cruises are the perfect excursion for the entire family! A scenic cruise on Jackson Lake will literally place you in the shadow of Mount Moran while you learn a bit about local history, geology, and folklore and take in the sights, including 10,000-year old glacial water flowing into Jackson Lake. See handicap accessibility details.
Take a meal cruise, and dine on your own private island as you see the park from a completely unique vantage point.
Group cruises and buyouts are available.
