About Lake Coeur d'Alene Cruises
Lake Coeur d'Alene Cruises commands a fleet of vessels that takes passengers over the blue waters of Lake Coeur d'Alene during day and evening festive themed cruises such as scenic St. Joe River cruise, Sunday brunch, and seasonal sunset dinner cruises. During warm summer days, scenic jaunts can take passengers on family-adventure based cruises, and during the winter season, cruise goers can enjoy educational cruises to Beauty Bay where they can see the annual return of the bald eagles out to region. At the toy workshop, see the world's largest animated floating Christmas tree with over 20,000 lights and a fireworks show. The winter also brings New Year's Eve cruises; a party cruise hosts live DJs, dancing, and ice-luge drinks, and a more relaxed dessert cruise features classic pop music—but both give passengers unparalleled views of fireworks and fill champagne glasses for toasts to another year without alien invasion.
