Kalamalka, Okanagan and Swan lakes each have their own special charm when it comes to boating. Enjoy your day on the water in a powerboat, or paddle the day away in a canoe or kayak.
Experience the rush of the wind in your hair and feel your adrenaline pump as you waterski or wakeboard on Kalamalka or Okanagan Lake. You can rent what you need from boats to skis and life jackets. Experience bouncing across the surface on an inner tube or try knee boarding where you kneel on your heels as you're whisked across the lake.
For something a little more laid back, hop in your canoe or kayak and explore the various coves and inlets. Get in touch with nature and your balance as you navigate the water on a stand up paddleboard.
Swan Lake is a shallower and quieter lake for those who want to paddle and explore. The surrounding wetlands provide some of the best bird watching in BC. It's a breeding, nesting and migration haven for ducks, waterfowl, marsh birds and more.
For those who want to fish, you've come to the right place. Check out the large shoal area at the southern end of Kalamalka Lake. Cast deep and draw in a rainbow trout, kokanee or even a northern pike minnow or big carp. Prepare to battle with a fish of a lifetime on Okanagan Lake. Here you'll find kokanee, lake whitefish, burbot, and rainbow trout that can reach well over 20 pounds!
