Scenic St. Joe River Cruises

Coeur d'Alene Resort Image Library 2012

Enjoy Sightseeing With Boat Cruises in Idaho

At the southern end of Lake Coeur d’Alene, your cruise boat enters the mighty St. Joe River, the highest navigable river in the world. You will transit Lake Chatcolet, a unique geographical phenomenon where the St. Joe River actually runs through Lake Coeur d’Alene, giving you a chance to see a part of North Idaho that not many people experience.

This area is rich in wildlife year round! The trip includes an opportunity to watch for eagles, osprey, deer and other native wildlife, as well as to learn about North Idaho’s lumber industry and more. Spring offers bright green vistas, summer offers warm sunshine, and fall is the season for seeing fall colors glide past the boat – incredible!


A full no host bar on board featuring a “BUILD YOUR OWN BLOODY MARY BAR”. A fine assortment of garnishes, juices, spices and spirits are yours to choose and select to make the best bloody mary, just as you like them.
