Boating & Sailing

Boating in Kelowna is not just a pastime, but a passion.
Okanagan Lake simply demands close encounters of the aquatic kind and the Kelowna area is fully geared up with all the boating services and amenities to make it happen.
Take to the water in a tow-boat or houseboat, canoe or kayak, jet-ski or paddle boat. Launch a personal craft at a public ramp. Motor to a secluded cove for a swim and a picnic, or just anchor and enjoy the sunshine in the middle of the lake. Trailer the fishing skiff or load the canoe on the rooftop rack for backcountry exploring.
There's no shortage of water to explore with an additional 200-plus smaller lakes located throughout the Okanagan region.
