Shoreline Cruise

Waterton Lakes National Park shares both notoriety and an international border with Glacier National Park in Montana. Together they form Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park, the world’s first International Peace Park and UNESCO World Heritage Site.


Without question, the best way to experience the easy flow between these two nations is from aboard the historic M.V. International offered by Shoreline Cruise lines at the Waterton marina. You will take an easy cruise along the shoreline of beautiful Upper Waterton Lake and cross the International border to Goat Haunt, Montana. It is a spectacular experience and comes highly recommended by visitors and locals alike.
