Flathead Lake is one of the largest natural fresh water lakes in the Western United States and is a wonderland for vacationers and locals alike. Its crystal clear waters reflect nearby mountain peaks creating an amazing place to kayak, swim, boat, fish and relax. A visit to Whitefish & the Flathead Valley wouldn’t be complete without taking advantage of the great local boating opportunities on Flathead Lake or one of the many other lakes and reservoirs in the area.
Whether you want to go fishing, water-skiing or take a scenic cruise, you can find boats for all your Flathead Lake boating needs at local lake marinas and private suppliers in the Whitefish and Kalispell areas. You can also rent human-powered watercrafts like kayaks and stand up paddleboards from many of the same companies.
