Overview

Go With the Wind Cruises is the longest running cruise on Okanagan Lake. These are informative, personal (your party only and leaving at your convenience), with the option to power, sail, or both. The captain will relate history, geography, and show you wildlife. Enjoy the peaceful, relaxing waters of Lake Okanagan. Pickup is in downtown Kelowna beside the Delta Grand Hotel.
