Sailing with Al and Jo really was the "cat's *ss" (name of their sailboat but TripAdvisor won't let me spell it lol). We had perfect weather and the company of a very delightful couple and their pup. You get a view that you can't get from any road, great stories, making for a very entertaining time. Should go on your... More

We were treated in first class style with stories, info and pictures. Meeting this pair and spending time with them was our best investment on this holiday! Do yourselves a favor, do something...

Enjoyed a 2 hours + sail in this boat captained by Al and Jo-Ann. We were picked up downtown and motored around the lake whilst being given an informative tour by this wonderful. We then sailed slowly back. Each cruise is custom tailored to what you want to see, one of the highlights for us was seeing the Ospreys. Al... More

This was our second tour with Capt Al & Jo-Ann & Gone with the Wind :) It was relaxing, informative & I was able to get some amazing photos of osprey, eagles & other birds & the scenery was breath-taking! Sadly, we were unable to sail, but were just as happy to motor around the lake. Thank you for a... More

We went out to Kelowna for the first time ever with friends back in July. Jo and Al, the owners/sailers/navigators, were so informative, fun and super interesting. The scenery was breath taking and the cruise was so relaxing We had no wind that day so the motor was what Al used and that ended up being just fine. If or... More
