Welcome aboard Free Spirit, a two masted, 35 foot wooden vessel. Take a cruise around Elk Lake and explore the shoreline dotted with beaches, campgrounds, cabins, hidden coves, and stretches of quiet forest. Sometimes we see bald eagles fishing the lake. There are plenty of photo ops with Mt. Bachelor, South Sister, and Broken Top reflecting on the water. Upon request we’ll stop for a swim in one of the warm shallow coves. Bring your own drinks and keep them on ice in our cooler.
Free Spirit is solar-electric powered to help keep Elk Lake pristine. She is also human-powered, equipped with 5 bicycles connected to a second propeller. Pedal or just sit back in the comfortable chairs and relax and enjoy the near-silent motion and pure mountain air.
Free Spirit departs from Elk Lake Resort’s main dock. Call the lodge to make reservations or catch us at the dock for immediate departures for groups of 3 or more. Wear your bathing suit and bring a towel if you plan to swim.
$15 per person for a 45 minute cruise across the lake
$30 per person for a 90 minute cruise around the lake
