The view. The food. The company. I can’t tell you which was better. All I can tell you is that you must go on a Lake Cruise to Elk Island.

The boat departs from Colter Bay Village and heads toward Elk Island, cruising the deep blue water of Jackson Lake. Our boat captain and a narrator enlighten us on history, wildlife facts, and other tidbits about the area. Kids can participate in answering trivia about the Park and have an opportunity to join the captain in a special part of the trip.

We arrive at the island for the dinner cruise and we are greeted by picnic tables dressed in red and white checkers with the Tetons appearing just an arm’s reach away. Our dinner is set up buffet style with a twist; the food is served from a large canoe. Truly a party for the taste buds, meal items include a salad bar, watermelon, rolls, corn on the cob, a potato medley, trout, steak and a berry cobbler for dessert.

After dinner, it’s time to explore the island, walking the shoreline in awe of the Tetons just across the lake. A few couples stroll along, hand-in-hand and we all soak up the view with full bellies and peaceful minds. 

There are breakfast, dinner and non-meal Lake Cruises that depart from Colter Bay Marina. The trip is an inexpensive way to get out on Jackson Lake, experience stunning views of the Tetons and peruse Elk Island.
