Volcano Boat Cruises
From early July to mid-September dependent upon weather conditions, guests can enjoy a tour of Crater Lake onboard Volcano Boat Cruises. The tours depart at Cleetwood Cove and are approximately one hour and 45 minutes. An Interpretative Ranger from the National Park Service will be onboard the boat and offer cultural and natural history about Crater Lake. All guests will remain on the boat for the entire tour, making stops at some special points along the way to view the beauty and formations of Crater Lake, including Wizard Island and Phantom Ship.

Crate Lake Lodge also offer tours to Wizard Island, where guests can be dropped off to enjoy additional hiking, exploration, and take in the beauty of the area. Please note there is a 1.1 mile hike with a 700-foot accent in elevation to and from Cleetwood Cove. Due to the strenuous nature of the hiking requirements to access the boat dock, this tour is not recommended for anyone with medical or physical problems that may limit them from this exertion.
Visit Volcano Boat Cruises for more information.

Hiking
Crater Lake contains more than 90 miles of hiking trails, ranging from easy to strenuous. Many of these trails may be hiked in a single day. Additionally, 33 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail pass through the park, offering hikers magnificent views of the lake. Hikers who wish to camp overnight in Crater Lake National Park must get a backcountry permit.

Fishing
Kokanee Salmon and Rainbow Trout are both present in Crater Lake. No fishing license is required within the boundaries of Crater Lake National Park. The lake can be fished year-round except when weather prevents safe access. The only access to the lake is by the Cleetwood Trail located on the north side of Crater Lake. Cleetwood Cove provides about a quarter mile of rocky shoreline for angling. Wizard Island is also open while boat tours are running. All waters are restricted to the use of artificial lures and flies.

Bicycling
One of the most popular and spectacular bicycle routes at Crater Lake is the 33-mile Rim Drive. The road is narrow with long, steep grades. Most cyclists start from the Park Headquarters area and ride around the lake clockwise, which puts one of the steepest and longest grades at the beginning of the trip.

Diving
Crater Lake is available for certified scuba divers. Permits are not required. Lake access requires a hike down Cleetwood Trail. Guests must be able to carry all of their equipment up and down the trail.

Winter Activities
During the winter season, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are popular. There are nine different skiing trails available, ranging in difficulty. Backcountry camping is available with a permit. Snowmobiling is available just outside the boundaries of the national park.
