The Epic Lake Boat Tour That Belongs On Every Oregonian’s Bucket List

Crater Lake is Oregon’s most spectacular lake, and arguably the most beautiful on the planet. With a depth of 1,949 feet, this caldera lake has awed and delighted every visitor who’s laid eyes on it. Did you know that the National Park Service offers a boat cruise that takes you right out on the lake? No other boats are allowed here, so this is the very best way to get up close and personal with one of Oregon’s true natural gems.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
