Looking for something to do this weekend during your stay with us? Try a Lake Coeur d’Alene Cruise, hosted by the Coeur d’Alene Resort. If you’ve been exploring the lake by yourself, chances are you’ve seen the large, two-deck cruise boats floating around. These boats are climate controlled, have picture windows, sound systems and full bar service. The resort offers many types of cruises; daily scenic, sunset dinner, charter and specialty cruises and many more. Read on below to see which option is best for you –
Daily Scenic Cruise (Best for families) – This cruise runs daily throughout the summer season. A scenic 90-minute ride around Lake Coeur d’Alene allows you to view beautiful terrain, private lake homes and the world’s only floating golf green. This is a relaxed, guided tour around the lake. The cruises board at Independence Point on a first-come, first-serve basis. You may board up to a 1/2 hour before departure.

Daily Sunset Dinner Cruise (best for couples) – This is my favorite cruise. Two hours, full buffet and plenty of scenic leisure time, what could be better? The food is EXCELLENT, and features tender prime-rib, wild-caught salmon, three cheese potatoes, salad, pasta and dessert. Complete with a gorgeous Coeur d’Alene sunset, these cruises are a great way to unwind from a busy day, or just another awesome way to relax on the water and see the beauty of the lake.
