Squally Point

Squally Point

Rattlesnake Island Squally PointSqually Point is located 2km south of Rattlesnake Island.
Just south of Squally point there is a cove with the best cliff jumping in the Okanagan. There are two different tried and tested spots for jumpers. The smaller jump spot is an island with a rope on the backside to help assist in the climb. The other spot can be accessed to the left of this island. It can also be a little tricky to climb so if venturing be very cautious, and if you have physical limitations stay in the boat. When at the cliffs, be sure to keep boats clear of areas where swimmers and jumpers are and may be landing.
