Over the late morning and into the afternoon of what was a fantastic day on the lake, Al shared stories of the Okanagan area and provided us with an introduction into the world of sailing. It was...

We enjoyed our voyage on beautiful lake Okanagan. Als hospitality and knowledge of the area gave us a side of the Okanagan valley that we would have never been able to experience on our own. Highly recommend this experience for anyone visiting from elsewhere.

These people (Jo and Al) where the perfect people to do what they do, we were given a very full 2 hour tour and monologue of a lot of the area around Kelowna, nice size boat and we had our choice of power or wind and chose power, a very interesting tour, well worth the time and money.

Had a super great time with my family. Both Captain Al and 1st Mate Jo-Ann were terrific. Meeting them was a breeze and after ensuring we had an opportunity to use the bathroom we headed straight to the boat. A quick orientation and a lifejacket for my boy and were on our way. Both Al and Jo-Ann were able to... More

We had the most wonderful 2 hours of our trip. Would recommend this sail on Lake Okanagan. It was a last minute decision and Al was very informative. Would certainly repeat it the next tine in Kelowna.

Summary: If you're looking to get your family out on the water for a few hours to see the area this is a very solid option and good value over renting a boat of your own. Pros: - Great personalized service once we were underway from Al and Jo :) - Very family friendly! Jo volunteered to take our daughter... More
