Spending time at the lake is one of the most beloved activities in Kelowna for both visitors and locals. With a vast shoreline, there is an array of ways to explore Okanagan Lake. Whether you want a calm day on the water or an adrenaline-filled afternoon, downtown Kelowna has you covered.
If you’re looking to venture out and explore on your own, Downtown Marina Kelowna offers numerous rental options, including boats and jet skis for the speed lovers, and stand-up paddleboards for those who prefer a more slow-paced option. If you’re bringing your own boat to Kelowna, they also offer moorage. Be sure to venture down the marina’s public dock to grab a few Instagram-worthy shots before heading out on the lake.
Not quite ready to take the helm of the boat yourself? Leave the driving to the experts at Luxury Lake Tours, located steps away from the marina. With a variety of options, including private charters, adventure tubing, and public cruises, they can accommodate up to 10 people on their luxury boat, Serendipity. For those who can’t decide between a lake tour and a wine tour, simply combine them with Luxury Lake Tours’ “Lake, Wake, & Wineries” or “The Sip & Sail” packages.
Up the adrenaline, as you soar into the air with HydroFly Kelowna’s flyboarding experience. Located in the same kiosk as Luxury Lake Tours, HydroFly Kelowna offers options for beginners, pros, and groups. As one of the easiest water sports to learn, most first-time flyers are up in the air within the first 5 minutes. At the same time, flyboarding provides a fun challenge to see how long you can stay in the air. Be sure to capture your flyboarding experience with one of their photo packages.
