The following 4 cities are the regions

Kelowna

Situated on beautiful Okanagan Lake, Kelowna sets the stage for a unbelievable boating experience. Created by glaciers during the ice age, this pristine mountain lake winds its way 80 miles or 130 kilometres through the wine fields and mountains of the Okanagan Valley. Kelowna is centrally located on the eastern shore, located on the middle the lake.

Your boating adventure within the Kelowna area will consist of two options, south of the floating bridge, or north of the bridge. Weather can sometimes eliminate one or the other, but both sides offer a wide array of activities and views.

The one hour tour experience and the Kelowna destination is  what to expect if purchased. South you can expect to see the Casa Loma area and its resort, big and beautiful lakefront homes on the western shoreline, the extreme vastness of the lake itself, and the beautiful shoreline and beaches of the eastern side of  the lake. The Northside of the floating bridge is considered to be the best choice for the 1 hour experience according to our past visitors. This side you can expect to see The Bluffs, Millionaires Alley with its multi-million dollar lakefront homes, Bear Creek Provincial Park, the historical Traders Cove, the overly modern mansions of Sheerwater Estates, the historical site of Pauls Tomb, Knox Mountain and lastly, one of Canadas largest marinas, the Kelowna Yacht Club.

Peachland – The number 1 Experience – Half Day Package

Imagine living and working in a location that many people just dream about for vacation visits. Situated on eleven kilometers of Okanagan lakefront, Peachland is in the very heart of the recreation paradise that is the Okanagan Valley. Positioned midway between Kelowna and Penticton, it is the perfect location to draw from both population centres, and is well positioned to act as a hub for wine and other agri-tourism activities. Peachland is within easy reach of over 200 estate wineries and microbreweries. In the relatively brief winter season Peachland is centrally located to downhill skiing at Big White to the east and Apex Mountain to the south. Numerous hiking, biking, cross country skiing, and snow-mobiling trails are within minutes drive of Peachland.

I love this town, I love the name, and everything about it! Its quit and cute, and a highly recommended place to stop for some ice cream or some lunch.

Peachland is for the half day and full day experiences, on the half day after the stop here in Peachland, we would carry on to the other side of the lake and visit Rattle Snake Island and the Okanagan Provincial Park.

Home to three major lakes – Kalamalka, Okanagan and Wood – below the lush valley hills, Lake Country has unparalleled beauty.

Lake Country is a district municipality with a population of approximately 13,000 in the Okanagan Valley region of British Columbia, Canada. It is a part of the Central Okanagan Regional District, and of the Kelowna metropolitan area. The city of Kelowna lies to the south, while the city of Vernon lies to the north.

To see lake country, you need to do at least the 2 hour experience. The area by water is void of all the bussy boat traffic, and is generally pretty calm.

 

Penticton – ‘a place to stay forever’

Penticton is one of just two cities in the world situated between two lakes. Beaches and water fun are part of the Summer culture here – dive in like a local and get wet. Okanagan and Skaha Beaches feature nearly 15 acres of premium, sandy beach and swimming areas. Along with all of the year-round recreational activities available, agriculture has been an important contributor to Penticton’s livelihood. There are over 80 wineries in the Penticton metropolitan area, 5 craft breweries and 3 distilleries all within easy distance of the downtown core.
Penticton is a city in the Okanagan Valley of the Southern Interior of British Columbia, Canada, situated between Okanagan and Skaha lakes. In 2016, its population was 33,761, while its census agglomeration population was 43,432. Wikipedia
