Description

Come take a ride on the Bear Lake Monster Boat, and enjoy a 45-Minute scenic cruise with folklore storytelling. Soft drink included.

Is there really a Bear Lake Monster?

"...the surface parted with a swelling roar of angry water as a serpentine head reared high..."

"...he distinctly saw a very large animal...not less than 90 feet in length..."

"...it swam with a speed almost incredible to their senses...making a mile a minute..."

"...he squirmed and splashed and made a horrible noise like the roaring of a bull..."

Come take a ride on the Bear Lake Monster Boat and decide for yourself!

Shorty after settlement by Mormon pioneers in 1863, an ominous tale began to circulate regarding a large, serpent-like creature lurking beneath the lake's icy waters. The shores of Bear Lake once provided fishing and hunting and served as gathering grounds for Native American tribes such as the Shoshones, Bannock, and Utes. Some of the Indians told the first settlers of Bear Lake about the Monster. They said that a monster had attacked and carried off two of their tribe members. As a result, the tribe had stopped coming to the lakeshore and bathing in the turquoise blue waters of Bear Lake.

The "Bear Lake Monster" has been scouted, sighted, talked about and written about for more that a hundred and thirty years. The monster was first sighted in 1868 and the last sighting was in 1994. Some of the stories are told with such serious intent that the witnesses are were offended when accused of lying; other accounts have the far-fetched frontier flavor of a tall tale. How big is the Monster? The witnesses' sightings range from sixty feet to two-hundred feet and many sizes in between. The Monster also makes a horrible noise, like the roaring of a bull. When visiting Bear Lake, always keep your eyes and ears open. You never know when you may be the one gobbled up by the Bear Lake Monster.
