I, the Captain will pick guests up from Paddle Wheel Park Public Boat Launch in Vernon at 4:30pm. A quick safety orientation briefing will be conducted and then we will start our cruise on the Beautiful northern arm of Okanagan Lake. We will cruise past beautiful homes and wine country scenery while pointing out and talking about the highlights and landmarks of the region, Okanagan Lake and the infamous Ogogopo! We will also see the Fintry Queen Paddle Wheel Boat that was built in 1947 and used to transport passengers across Okanagan Lake. Hopefully we will have a chance to see eagles, deer, and even small black bears. Guests can bring on board snacks and beverages and smiles as they sit back and experience the beauty of the Okanagan by water. This tour is suitable for all ages. This tour will end where we started at 5:30pm
I'm excited to share where I live and show you the beauty of the Okanagan by Boat. I love to travel and see and learn new things. I also have a love for boating and all things water. I'm very knowledgeable about the history of the the area, Okanagan Lake and also the infamous Ogopogo! I am also a qualified Captain under Transport Canada. I hold a Small Vessel operator Proficiency, First aid, and Marine Emergency duties (Med A3) courses as well as many years of operating boats and being out on the water. I hope to teach you about the area, show you the beauty of the Okanagan by water and get you around safely, while you have a great time seeing the sites and meeting new people on the boat.
