About
We offer a unique opportunity to Kelowna visitors and residents alike. We offer point-to-point taxi-like services when required, as well as enjoyable tours and charters for those who want to enjoy some time on the lake. As the ultimate provider of wonderful cruising experiences in Kelowna, join us and make great memories! Our craft is a luxurious 29'-6" Searay bowrider (not a pontoon boat) with soft leather seats. Our service is ideal for any size of group up to 9 passengers because our rates are the same whether you have only a couple of people or if you have 9 participants in your group. From a couple wanting to enjoy a completely private ride to a group of nine wanting to have their own private party, our cruises are ideal and don’t include any additional charges for additional people over a certain limit, and no additional fuel charges for normal cruising speed. We are confident you will find our cruises are a great choice, from luxury, to cost, to ambiance.

While looking for a boat tour during our family trip to Kelowna, we found Kelowna Water Taxi and Cruises and the reviews said to stop scrolling and pick Peter, the reviews were right. From the booking process right through the boat orientation and the tour, including booking our wine tour, Peter was a pleasure to deal with and to be around. Peter is very knowledge about the area, pointing out all the areas visitors may not be familiar with and answerd any questions we had. Peter was a pleasure to be around and was great with kids even letting them help captain the boat!! You can tell Peter is passionate about giving his guests the best experience possible and was very accommodating, willing to set his boat up to our own needs. Once at the Frind Winery Peter showed us the winery and ensured we were taken care of for the tasting and even booked us a table at the restaurant for after the tasting. Even with the slight rain we had on the trip it was still very enjoyable!!
Thanks Peter! From the Parkers

Hello katiepX5245WC Thank you very much for the glowing detailed five star review and taking the time to write it. Furthermore, I am truly humbled by your very kind words. It's meeting families like yours that make what I do so worthwhile. And seeing the smiles on the kids faces as they captained the boat made my day. I do strive to give my guests the best experience possible and I am very so pleased to hear you felt I was a pleasure to deal with through the booking process, the tour and you were taken care for the tasting at Frind Winery including booking you a table at the restaurant, allowing you to enjoy the day as you should. Even with the slight rain you guys took it in your stride and such a pleasure to spend time with. Thank you too for sharing your photos including Emily, Austin and myself. Lovely kids and I love that photo with them, one for the archives for sure. You are very welcome Parkers, thank you for coming out and putting your trust in me. Peter Brady

As locals my family and I have been looking for different things to do within the area. I found Peter's company on Google and decided to reach out.

Peter was so accommodating when I contacted him on Canada Day for a private cruise the following weekend.

He tailored our cruise to suit our time frame and gave us a bit of a "home" tour with the multi-million dollar lakefront homes as we made our way towards Summerhill and CedarCreek from the Eldorado boat launch. Our final destination was West Side Yacht Club so when we began our trek across the lake he opened the boat up and took us for a very fun ride.

Very impressed with the entire experience and gorgeous boat! Will definitely book with Peter again!!

We had the absolute pleasure of spending the day on Peter’s boat - TWICE! After a google search I came across his website and we booked a 3 hour cruise while visiting kelowna from Winnipeg. We had the best time. He is the best captain and the boat is big and lovely. We swam multiple times - the lake is incredible! We loved it so much we booked him again 2 days later for another 3 hours ... and he took us to other parts of the lake - the homes and the views are break taking. Highly recommend! Thanks Peter for an amazing 2 days in the sun!

Hello silly_syI2016, Thank you for the five star review, taking the time to write it and your kind words. I know from searching Google you had many choices as to whom to choose for a Lake Cruise. Thank you for choosing me. I'm thrilled to hear that you loved your 1st three hour cruise so much you booked a 2nd three hour cruise. That is music to my ears and I had the most wonderful fun time with you and your best friends on both cruises. Both were certainly very memorable events. I'm also thrilled to hear you felt the boat was big and lovely. Yes, the homes and views are breathtaking, the lake is also incredible and very happy to hear you enjoyed being able to swim multiple times. Thank you for coming out and for highly recommending me. You are very very welcome Sylvia, the pleasure was all mine and again I am just tickled to hear you felt you had an amazing 2 days in the sun! Cheers, Peter

We had booked an hour. Right off the bat the best part is that you are speaking with Peter who is the captain and owner of the business. So no trying to figure out who it will be.
We read a few reviews and the day before someone in our hotel mentioned the went on a tour and I asked if it was Peter and they said yes, and took a pic and sent it to him. I was surprise how they connected.
On the day off we were a bit late due to my daughter having a last minute diaper change and Kelowna traffic. He called in to check and waited patiently.
Being late I thought he would rush but on the contrary he took his time to give us an orientation before we took off.
Peter has a wonderful personality and makes this even better. He showed us all the hot spots around kelowna and gave us great tips on where to visit and wineries.
Overall a great experience.
If anyone cannot figure it out and wants a water experience in Kelowna I would highly recommend calling Peter.
Oh and he lets u take a dip in the lake as well :)

Hello Zeghamb, Thank you for the five star review, taking the time to write it and your kind words. I do strive to give me customers the best experience I can and I'm delighted to hear you found me accommodating in every way. I do take all calls, do all the scheduling and processing personally as well as being the captain and I am also delighted to hear that you appreciated not having to figure out who it will be and that you were speaking to the same person throughout the whole booking process to completion of tour. Yes, Kelowna traffic can be a challenge in Summer and when you are traveling with little ones trying to keep a schedule is not always easy. But I appreciated your communication as to what your delay was and I will never rush a customer especially when it comes to being orientated about the safety aspects before departure. Furthermore, I'm happy to hear you appreciated being shown all the hot spots, tips on attractions to visit, wineries and being able to take a dip in the lake if you want. Thank you for choosing Kelowna Water Taxi & Cruises as you lake tour provider, for highly recommending me and I hope to see you onboard again the next time you make it back to the Kelowna. Cheers, Peter Brady

Last summer, my wife and I visited Kelowna B.C. and had a most pleasant water cruise of Lake Okanagan. Our host, Captain Peter Brady was thoughtful, informative, and humorous. We had a delightful time and highly recommend Kelowna Water Taxi and Cruises. If your visiting anywhere in the Okanagan, take the time to take a cruise, you will not regret it. My wife is normally a little frightened of boats and water, but not on this cruise. Mr. Brady was professional in every way, and his detail to safety was second to none. His efforts from his greeting on shore to departure at the end of the day was one of the most pleasant experiences we have had. Hats off to Kelowna Water Taxi and Cruises and in particular the proprietor Peter Brady.

My friends and I travelled from Manitoba to Kelowna for the long weekend and our first excursion was with Peter on his boat for two hours. We had such a great time cruising around with Peter and my friends were thrilled with his Irish accent. It was a gorgeous sunny day, and it was made even better with Peter's warm personality and excellent customer service.... Miigwech! Thank you! :)

Peter was a superb tour guide! Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Such a great way to see Kelowna from a different view!
The wine tasting and restaurant that he booked for us was also phenomenal. It was just my husband and I on the tour, but the kids would have also immensely enjoyed it. Fun for all ages!
