Location: Southernmost point of West Kelowna; straight south of West Kelowna Yacht Club in Gellatly Bay. The Cove is West Kelowna’s premiere resort. Elegant rooms, spacious patio, and temporary moorage for visitors are a few things that separate The Cove from the rest. Upon arriving at the marina, The Cove’s dock staff will make sure that you are in the right stall and tied up properly before you head up to The Bonfire Restaurant. The Bonfire is a great place to take in a nice meal, they feature many dishes using ingredients grown in the Okanagan as well as produce from their own private garden.
A must see when you’re enjoying a Kelonwa Boat Rental on the Okanagan Lake!
Yes, there are Rattlesnakes here! Location: Due East of Peachland; easily seen on the left side of lake when coming from Kelowna. Rumoured to be the home of the mysterious lake monster, Ogopogo, Rattlesnake island is a favourite spot for locals and tourists. The island is home to an abandoned mini golf course, but landing a boat on the island is impossible so if you are interested in an adventure the driver will have to drop people off within swimming distance. (There is a beautiful naturally sheltered cove though)
Squally 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.
Location: East shore of Lake Okanagan in Vernon. Approximately 50km North of Kelowna.
The Blue Herron is the only place in Vernon that you will find a full service boating option. They offer moorage for their guests if one chooses to fill up on food at the restaurant. While, if you are concerned about the journey back or as just a little low from touring all day, the Herron offers a gas dock to ensure you will get to where you want to go.
