We have been to Kelowna a number of times but have never seen the city and surrounding area from the water. An out of town visitor prompted us to try something new. We found Al, with Go With the Wind Cruises through TripAdvisor. The on-line booking was simple and efficient and Al provided all the advance information we needed. When... More

We contacted Al by email early one evening and he replied very quickly as we wanted to cruise the following day and were unsure as it was right at the end of the season. Promptly at 10;00am we want out onto Lake Okanagan and spent a most agreeable 2 hours doing a circular route towards the north of the lake.... More

Absolutely wonderful morning cruise with Al and Jo. They were very professional but so personable - what a way to tour the lake for a few hours - enjoyed Al's stories and descriptions of places we passed by. By far this is the best cruise going; small, comfortable and memorable. I have mobility issues and Al took great care to... More

It was a wonderful Noon cruise in August. Al and Jo were great hosts who kept our six year old daughter highly engaged and gave her the wonderful opportunity to steer the boat while the wind sails were up. This is a great way to see a bit more of Kelowna than you normally would and is highly recommended.

We had a wonderful enjoyable and relaxing experience. We highly recommend Al's sailing tour. He takes you around the lake, explains a lot about the area and his stories add to a great time and good laughters. Don't miss it! Thanks Al 😊

We went on the cruise today and fully enjoyed it. Cannot say enough to how welcoming Al and Jo were. Highly recommended. Gives you a different perspective when you are on the water.

We grew up on the West Coast of Canada and never got to enjoy such a pleasant boating trip... our cruise with "Go With the Wind" was exceptional. Booking was simple, communication was excellent and informative throughout. Al was even ready to accommodate our eagerness to “learn the ropes” of sailing during our 2-hour trip. The weather was surprisingly stormy... More

What a great way to spend my first time on a sailboat! We sailed with the sails out and by motor, both were very enjoyable. Captain Al and Jo are both very professional, knowledgeable and attentive. Jo always had her eyes open to make sure everyone was comfortable and often offered snacks and beverages. They took the time to educate... More

This was supposed to be the highlight of our trip to Kelowna. We had booked a tour in advance. We showed up on time on the morning of our tour and it was a bright sunny day. We waited for at least an hour before leaving. We called multiple times, left voicemails, and sent an email in case there was... More

I'm so sorry we missed you. I returned at 12:20 from an earlier cruise and waiting on the dock was Laura P and her 3 friends from Ft. Mac. They boarded the boat and we headed out not knowing that I had double booked two Lauras for the same time period. The confusion arose from the emails we sent and... More

Excellent experience!! Great hosts!! You enter the boat at city park in Kelowna where you're greeted by 2 very friendly hosts. They tell you about the area and the lake. The boat is secure with a bit of room to walk around. We didn't get a chance to finish our cruise because of the weather. But it was still a... More
