Experience the breathtaking scenery of Lake Pend Oreille, Idaho’s largest lake.  Welcome aboard the Shawnodese for a memorable experience…

Be it a public cruise or private charter, you can cruise in style on the Shawnodese on spectacular Lake Pend Oreille.  The Shawnodese is a unique chartering vessel designed and constructed by Captain Curtis Pearson expressly for cruising North Idaho’s magnificent 43 mile long Lake Pend Oreille.  His vision ~ taking two years to complete~ was to construct a charter boat embodying the elegance of an old river boat while retaining the intimacy of a private yacht..  The richly appointed Shawnodese fulfills his extraordinary vision.  Passengers enjoy an unparalleled experience for lunch, dinner, sunsets, business meetings, and weddings. Make any event into an extraordinary occasion. When you charter the Shawnodese, you create your own custom itinerary for exploring Lake Pend Oreille’s vast shoreline and secluded bays.  Or choose from one of many of our public cruises departing daily in the summer from the Lakeside Inn in Sandpoint..  For further information and photographs, check out our website at www.lakependoreillecruises.com.  Or call today and schedule your personal adventure aboard the Shawnodese.
