We are fully licenced by Transport Canada as a commercial business offering both a Water Taxi service and private lake cruises.
Our guests have been ecstatic about their experiences on our water taxi or boat cruise on Lake Okanagan and often come back for more whenever they can!
Whether you just want to go from Point A to Point B with our unique private taxi service, or want to enjoy a fun boat ride on Lake Okanagan that's just for you or your group for a one hour, two hours or more (as much as you want!), we offer services on board our luxurious bowrider the Gael Force that will not disappoint.
Read about our various "Signature Tours" and let us know which one suits you best!
Kelowna Water Taxi & Cruises has added several choices of longer tours for those who want to spend a more extended time on the water.
Check out our tours and call Captain Peter for additional information or to book!
Our unique water taxi service is available 7 days a week from 8:00am to 8:00pm, and runs from April 1st to September 30th every year. Since our water taxi is completely private just for you and your group, we can custom tailor your trip to your own requirements. Getting to your destination does not have to be boring. Sure, you can just sit back and enjoy the ride if you are in a hurry and we will zoom you to your destination. Or if you want to enjoy a cool dip along the way, we can accommodate that too!
Our boat is equipped with plush and comfortable seats along with bow and stern tables for maximum convenience. There is also a swim ladder mounted beneath the swim platform. Most importantly, yes there is a "bathroom". The Gael Force provides an enclosed "head" compartment with a flushing commode and wash basin. We also have a fridge on board to keep your snacks and drinks cold if you don't bring your own cooler. You can even wash up in our sink with running water.
We do not provide beverages or food on board except bottled water at no additional cost. However Transport Canada has approved that you can bring along your own cooler with your favorite snacks and drinks. Or pick up a meal "to go"from one of Kelowna's top eateries and enjoy it while taking in the incredible scenery from the water!
We are licensed for up to nine passengers at a time on our private water taxi ride or Lake Okanagan boat tour.
We do allow small dogs on board at no additional charge - please check with Peter Brady for more information about your pet's safety.
