Backcountry Shuttle Service
This is a unique and convenient way to transport people and equipment to Yellowstone Lake’s backcountry areas. The backcountry shuttle boat service can take hikers and/or boaters (maximum 6 people per trip) to some of the more distant locations along Yellowstone Lake. The Otter, our shuttle boat, is built to carry people, gear, and even a rowboat or a few canoes or kayaks. Canoes available for rent only with backcountry shuttle service. If requested, the Otter will pick up parties at prescheduled places and times for their return trips.
Get into the backcountry of Yellowstone with a rental Canoe or your personal boat for the day. One day excursions are available that include one canoe, paddles, life vests, outriggers and transportation of a maximum of 6 people and gear. Additional canoes are available for rent.
