Hire a boat. Approximately 212 C$ for one hour. A security Credit card swipe of 2500 C$ was done. Take life jackets. Driving a motor boat without previous experience was a great thrill. The lake is beautiful and mesmerising. Will visit again. Thumbs-up

Beaches, water activities, boardwalks, and lakeside snack shacks. There's something for everyone and the lake is gorgeous!

Interesting residental architecture views from the lake. There are so many varieties of expensive boats on the lake. It is fun to go to Peachland by boat, there is a public dock to tie up to and you can explore the stores & restaurants in Peachland.

Very nice lake. Interesting to note: one day we day across the bridge, one side of the bridge the water was calm, the other side the wind had whipped the water in to good sized white cap waves.

This lake is huge with many beaches. Kelowna has some nice beaches and some beautiful beaches in Penticton. Some great walks along the water in Kelowna near the grand hotel, in Peachland along the main drag and in west Kelowna at the Cove resort
