Boat Tours


Take in the Views from the Lake! 

The best way to see Crater Lake is by boat! For visitors seeking to explore Wizard Island we offer either a boat cruise or a quick shuttle ride straight to the island. There is a 2.2 mile round-trip trail (down to the boat dock and back), this trails drops approximately 700 ft., due to the strenuous nature of this trail, we do not recommend these tours to anyone with medical or physical issues. The hike down to the dock takes approximately 30-45 minutes. 

Boat tour schedules are based upon weather and are subject to change. It is recommended to allow at least 90-minutes prior to the boat trip for travel from Crater Lake Lodge/Rim Village to Cleetwood Cove for tour.
