It was a real treat to be on the water with these interesting, skilled, funny, thoughtful, sociable and informative people. We have had some lovely experiences in Canada on our holiday but this will be... More

Pros: - Great personalized service once we were underway from Al and Jo :) - Very family friendly! Jo volunteered to take our daughter... More

This was a great afternoon on the water. We sailed for 2 hours. Al & Jo were great. Good stories and good conversation. I would highly recommend this activity if you are visiting Kelowna or have company coming to visit and want to show them Kelowna from the water. We really enjoyed it!

I booked with Al and Jo after reading about them online. I was looking for a special place to renew our vows for our 25th anniversary and it didn't get more special than this! Al and Jo are the perfect hosts and it felt like we were sailing with friends we'd known a long time. Thank you for sharing our... More

Spent 4 hours on the water, great way to see Kelowna and area from the water, different perspective for sure. Al and Jo are the perfect hosts, very funny, easy to fill the time with lots of stories and information.

I planned my friend's bachelor party road trip for the long weekend and I set up this sailing cruise for a Saturday afternoon. Honestly, from couples, to small groups of friends, you have to check out Al and Jo at Go With the Wind....they are great! Really nice folks with some great stories and they will actually explain the sailing... More

Spent two hours cruising along enjoying the scenery, a nice cold bottle of wine and conversation. Our hosts were experienced, friendly and full of great stories and information on the area. Must do while in the Kelowna area. Thanks again!

Go With the Wind Cruises was great! We found it after searching for a sailing cruises of Lake Okanagan. Al is an excellent host and captain. We'd highly recommend it to anyone wanting to see a little bit more of the Lake.
