Scenic Hot Cocoa Cruise Coeur D'Alene, Idaho In The Winter

Scenic Hot Cocoa Cruise Coeur d’Alene

Nothing is more iconic about Coeur d’Alene than the lake. When people ask why we love this little town so much that we will endure 3 months of snow to live here, I always tell them how lucky we are to live so close to the water. Even when you can’t swim in it, there is something so soothing about hearing the waves and looking out to the snow-capped mountains on the other side. 

My personal favorite way to see the lake is on a boat, and this winter you can! Every Friday through Sunday in January, February, and March, scenic hot cocoa cruises will take you out to see Coeur d’Alene in the best way possible. Warm up with the purchase of a hot cocoa bar (spiked options for the adults!) and enjoy the views on this 90-minute ride. Sit inside where it is warm and cozy or adventure up to the top deck to get a 360-degree view of the lake and downtown. Cruises depart at 12:30 and 2:30 pm from The Floating Boardwalk to the east of the CDA Resort. Visit to purchase tickets and view the adult hot cocoa menu. 

Scenic cruises are a favorite family activity for your first time in CDA or your 100th time. With the cold weather, all is made better with hot coca aboard.
