About Coyote Cruises
One of Penticton’s unique and favourite summer activities is floating down the River Channel. Visitors are invited to rent inner tubes and rafts and take a leisurely ride down the 7 kilometre long Channel to Skaha Lake. The River Channel is located between Okanagan Lake and Skaha Lake. The float starts at the Coyote Cruises launch site at 215 Riverside Drive. If you need floating tubes and a ride back to your vehicle Coyote Cruises will provide both. If you are looking to rent a tube or raft or simply require transportation once you are done floating the Channel, Coyote Cruises can help you out. Pick up is at the end point only in 2020.

Always a fun time! Would help if staff were accurate on time of float to end! They always say 3 hours, when in fact at times sooooooo much longer! 4-5 hours! First timers should really know this so they have option to get out mid point! I’m sure the bus drivers coulD let them know, as u can hear people talking about it!

Thank you Coyote Cruises. You made our family day out on the Quad floatie really enjoyable. From check in to pick up at the end of the channel everything you did was great. We will be back again soon.

Enjoyed this easy going trip. Service was fine upon arrival, bus driver that took us back very considerate. I don’t understand people complaint about the length of the ride, nor the condition of the canal… all is clear on their site, at least for me. We had a double tube, quite relaxing. A small paddle would have helped reach the exit point, but otherwise thoroughly enjoyed this refreshing ride in the late afternoon heat.

1) If you have your own inflatable, I honestly don't even know why you have to pay these folks to use the canal?? 2) On entry, the ticket booth attendant was unpleasant and seemed to want to be elsewhere. Another lady in front of me said the same thing. 3) the canal has nothing to do with Coyote Cruises. THE CANAL IS AMAZING. It is a nice way to spend a few hours relaxing; but, the experience has nothing to do with Coyote Cruises. 4)Other than the bus ride back, I WOULD NOT PAY COYOTE CRUISES to use the canal. 5) **WARNING** THE STEPS ON EXIT AT THE END OF THE CANAL ARE SLIPPERY AND EXTREMELY DANGEROUS. No posted signs that i could see... no warning about very slippery steps that I'm aware of. On exit I slipped and fell, ended up in Oliver hospital... torn meniscus (knee). Just after i fell, one of the employees of Coyote Cruises turned to 2 of the younger employees and said, "Scrub the stairs, this is the second fall today." Question- Whose responsibility is it to keep the steps safe and not slippery? 6) so what does this do for me and work and life in general? 7) I got contact info for the owner of Coyote Cruises, He seemed bothered that i even called him. He contested me and asked.... "What do you want me to do about it?" I guess it's not his problem; I was furious. I'll save the name of this fine gent, but he sure didn't care even a bit. 8) The canal is a very nice time....let's just leave it at that.

Everyone was pleasant to deal with from the Tube Shack, the young gentleman helping us out of the channel, and the bus driver for the trip back to the start. The 4 person tube we rented was perfect for a nice relaxing float. Just wish the skies were smoke free.
