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

Jo & Al made my first visit to Kelowna one of the most memorable. I took this tour with my husband and my mother and they were absolutely in love with the scenery and the history of the city that Jo & Al shared. They did a custom tour to see the things that we had wanted to know more... More

We booked with Al and Jo from 10 am - 12 pm, which was perfect. It wasn't too hot yet. And we were lucky enough to be cruising the day the Snowbirds were in town, so they were doing their practice runs above us. Al and Jo were super friendly and knowledgable of the area. They shared many stories with... More

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

Captain Al and Jo took us on a grand two plus hour motor sail of the lake. Two most gracious hosts made our trip fun and memorable. 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...

Thanks to Al & Jo who facilitated such a lovely outing on their boat. Such warm and gracious hosts added to the amazement we experienced seeing our city from a fresh perspective - this great lake! Our visitors from England found the tour interesting and relaxing - such fun! Thanks to Jo for helping with the 8 month old twins... More

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
