Great Salt Lake Boat Tour

For the curious visitor, a trip to the Great Salt Lake should be included on your list of fun things to do in Salt Lake City. The Great Salt Lake has two main access points, with Great Salt Lake Marina featured above. The first sailing craft on the lake was launched in 1847, the year the Mormons arrived in Salt Lake Valley. By 1860, boating for pleasure was becoming popular, with cruises and boat races held throughout the late 1800's. The Great Salt Lake Yacht Club was established in 1877, one of America's oldest continuously chartered Yacht Clubs. They call themselves the "World's Saltiest Sailors."
