Talk to anyone who’s spent a few seasons working in Glacier, and they’ll tell you that Glacier Park Boat Company is the best job in the park. Why? Because we’ve been in business in Glacier for over 80 years and we know that the experience of living in Glacier and exploring its million acres is the real reason people work here. Yes, learning to captain our historic fleet of wooden tour boats while telling visitors about Glacier’s unique history and pointing out grizzly bears and moose on the side of the lakes is an amazing experience, but it’s also about what you do on your days off. Our staff gets three days off each week and our free shared housing is inside the park, literally steps from trails that connect across hundreds of miles of pristine wilderness. Don’t miss the boat! Make 2022 the year you do Glacier!
