Lake Pend Oreille Cruises

The daily afternoon cruise on the Shawnodese is a delightful loop trip near the shores of Lake Pend Oreille. Learn about the history and geology of this magnificent lake. See where the ice dam was formed 17,000 years ago that led to the creation of Lake Pend Oreille. Lake Pend Oreille’s origin is a fascinating story and has been said by Geologists to be "The greatest geologic story never told." Learn about the early Indian history and David Thompson, the first white man to settle in our area. Discover our rich rail history, and our very strange connection to Navy submarine research. Most of all experience the awesome beauty of our lake and mountains. And as a special treat for our young (and young at heart) passengers, children have an opportunity to be Captain of the Day and take a turn at the wheel.
