Sailboat cruise (Dannielle Hayes photo)
There are a few cruise companies in the Kootenay Rockies region that offer houseboat rentals and sailboat tours on Kootenay Lake or Lake Koocanusa.
Explore Kootenay Lake by renting a houseboat from Kaslo Shipyard Co. (Kaslo) and ducking into quiet coves to fish for kokanee salmon, or by sailing at sunset with Red Sky at Night Sailing Adventures (Balfour) and lounging on deck with a glass of wine in hand. Sunshine Houseboat Vacations in Cranbrook offers houseboat rentals on Lake Koocanusa.
For a mini-cruise, take the 40-minute Kootenay Lake Ferry – the world’s longest free ferry ride – between Balfour and Kootenay Bay.
