Al and Jo were wonderful hosts right from the beginning. We did our introductions and were shown the important safety instructions. We spent much of our 4 hours learning about life in Kelowna. They provided endless information and stories as we sailed along the lake. They are active members of the Kelowna Yacht Club and we really admired how much... More

We had the opportunity to bring our relatives on a sunset cruise with Al and Jo and we all had a blast! Put this on your to do list and you won't be disappointed. Great way to spend a couple of hours with a great captain and his first mate!

We were fortunate enough to book a two hours cruise in a sunny day. It was just wonderful, the weather was lovely, Al and Joe were so friendly sharing with us all these stories and information about the lake and wildlife. One thing that we really loved was the way they were so accommodating to our curious 5 years old... More

My father and I did a tour early March as a last houra before travelling back home to Alberta. The tour was better than expected! Al and Jo were very kind and hospitable and they really went out of their way to make the tour a great experience. Al was very knowledgeable about the tour and the city of Kelowna... More

Al and Jo are the perfect hosts to a great sailboat cruise. We cruised for 2 hours in September - which was perfect! It was a beautiful day for the ride. Al and Jo were kind enough to take pictures of everyone and even let us steer the boat when sailing! Thank you again!

My wife and I visited Kelowna in August just for one evening. We wanted to take a short trip on the lake in the morning, and found Go With the Wind Cruises. Jo and Al were great hosts and the trip was very relaxing. Al is a long-time resident of the area and provided plenty of interesting commentary. Everything was... More

My wife and I took a 2 hour cruise on his sweet little boat The Cat's Axx a month ago. Captain Al was a gracious and friendly host. It's not just his job - it's his passion. Besides the cruising and sailing which is a treat in itself on Okanagan Lake he had a story about every vessel on the... More

This review is late - too much company! I was wanting to do something different and special for my husband's birthday on August 8 and I did with 'Go With the Wind Cruises'. Had I known it was going to be so great, we would have booked for 4 hours instead of 2! Al and Jo are amazing hosts and... More

This cruise was recommended to us by Shalyn from Wine your Way tours and we are so glad we booked it. We did an afternoon cruise at 6pm and spent the next 2 hours enjoying the glorious scenery and wild life around Kelowna. We were also amazed by the expensive houses that dotted the shoreline. Al and Jo were so... More
