About Us

Spectacular Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho's largest lake, is best seen from the water! What better way to relax and enjoy this magnificent scenery than from the Shawnodese, a custom built 43 foot boat. Offering both public cruises and private charters in the Spring, Summer, and Fall, the Shawnodese accommodates up to 36 passengers. Lake Pend Oreille Cruises has a variety of cruises to suit every taste. The Shawnodese operates from Kramer Marina in the Spring & Fall, and Sandpoint City Beach Dock in the Summer. Children are welcome, especially on our summer afternoon cruises, which allow the young and young at heart a chance to take the wheel and be ''Captain of the Day''! Evening cruises offer a chance to delight in spectacular sunsets while getting to know your fellow passengers.
