The Great Salt Lake is the saltiest body of water in the Western Hemisphere. Come enjoy this experience by actually going out on the lake rather than just seeing it from the shore. We will do a short boat ride around the marina area, hear some stories, history and jokes about the lake, and even do a few demonstrations. And of course have time for a good picture or two. There is no swimming on this tour, just sightseeing from the boat.

Yes the great salt lake has bugs near the marina. They don’t bite but can swarm at times. We give you hats with nets to keep them out of your face so please take one so they don’t “bug” you.

Great experience. Boat was comfortable and groups are not large so the experience is great. Went in May before the bug season so it was not a problem at all.

My husband and I took our 1yr old & 7 yr old and they both had a blast! We had a lot of fun too & learned a lot about the Great Salt Lake. Our guide was great, friendly, and knowledgeable.

This was a great way to see and learn a little more about the lake. One of the company owners was our pilot. He was funny and pleasant and engaged the group. The only thing that was a bit confusing from reading the itinerary was the 5-minute stop. You basically stop in the lake. Other than that, everything was clear. I would recommend.

Met Tyler, our Captain, right next to the Great Salt Lake Marina Visitors Center. What a pleasant guy! We had forgotten our sunscreen, but he had us covered and offered us and another family cold water while we waited.After a brief safety meeting, it's a stone's throw walk to the peer and then on to a pontoon boat for the trip.The boat ride provides some cool information regarding the lake and the surrounding area, including Antelope Island, which has buffalo on it and can be visited. Who knew?! The factoids are shared in an engaging manner and Tyler did two demonstrations which were cool and unexpected.All in all it's a pretty straight boat ride on Salt Lake. For us, it was time well spent with the entire family. Luckily, we went at a time when nats were pretty minimal and there was a nice breeze.

Colton was a cleaver captain sharing stories about the lake.We wish it had been an hour or two in length so we could have explored the non-industrial views of the lake
