I appreciated all the geological information about the Great Salt Lake and the interesting way it was presented. Our tour guide was friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. When leaving the dock it is smelly (this is normal for a salt water lake.) It was fine once the boat moved onto the lake.

Here's the thing our guide John was awesome very knowledgeable about the area and answered all the questions everyone had. now i knew from the reviews that it was going to be a little stinky that was no big deal it went away the farther you go out, but the brine flies were ridiculous, not many in the way out but we were swarmed by 1000s on the way in, it was terrible, definitely recommend the hat they offer if you don't want to eat flies...

Guides were knowledgeable and very interesting. The lake is something to see. The boat was nice and offered both shady and sunny spots. Don’t mind the slightly funky smell.

The guide tried his best to make the boat tour of the Great Salt Lake interesting. However, there just wasn’t that much to show the tourists. If I had to do it again, I would skip this tour. Again, it was no fault of the guide. He tried his best.

The only thing was the tour wasn't 45min as stated, wish it would of been longer and we could of gone to more areas of the lake. The guide showed mountains in the distance and wish we could of gone closer to them. Would be nice if you added time so we could jump in the lake and experience floating and how it would feel.

The Great Salt Lake boat tour
Jilleyn_K

Our tour guide Tyler was very knowledgeable. He taught us a lot about The Great Salt Lake, about the water level changes, the reason why Utah is called the beehive state, and why they are known to have the best snow in the winter. He told us about the building that turned into a concert hall, the area copper mine, and also about how the lakes salty water corrodes boats very quickly. They have to change parts underneath their boat about every 6 mths. It was a great tour, and we got to feel the water & when it dries on you how salty it makes your skin.

Fun way to learn about Salt Lake

As this was our first trip to Salt Lake City, the boat ride was fun and educational as well. We enjoyed learning about the history of the lake and the surrounding area. It's really a shame that the water level is so low to prevent so many boats from docking in the marina.

Disappointing

We made reservations for two boats and there was only one! So our people had only a 30 minutes ride and then had to wait while the second half of our group made their trip.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2022
These folks made the reservation with a third-party vendor that double booked them. We currently only have one boat and our reservation system caps at nine people so I don’t know how these people were able to make two reservations of 9ppl at the same time. We were very apologetic about this even if it wasn’t our fault and we offered to just split the group and do two 30 minute Tours so we could get all 18 people out on the water and of course we refunded the second booking. Apparently it wasn’t good enough for these people. Not sure what else we could have done to make the situation better.

Worthwhile boat tour.

Definitely a worthwhile experience. We learned a lot about the Great Salt Lake. Since the lake level is low, those with mobility issues will need assistance getting down/up the ramp to the boat slip. Staff was wonderful.
