Boat Tours

Whatever floats your boat

Sail away to adventure under the midnight sun on our Northwest Territories lakes and rivers. Choose a harbour cruise at Yellowknife, Hay River or Inuvik with a licenced guide. From Hay River, choose an exciting jet boat trip up the Hay River to Louise Falls. From Fort Simpson, cruise the Mackenzie River or zoom up the North Nahanni River by jet boat. At Yellowknife, paddle your own voyageur canoe complete with live fiddler, or spend an afternoon with a working fisherman, and picnic on fresh fish on an island in Yellowknife Bay.
