GO TUBING IN THE OKANAGAN

Summer Sun worshippers of all ages clog

Penticton’s seven Kilometre Okanagan river

Channel with inner tubes, dinghies, air mattresses

and colourful inflatable pool toys.

On a hot day, some 4,000 people may drift the

waterway that runs along the city’s west side

from Okanagan Lake southward to Skaha Lake.

The full trip takes three to five hours, depending

on winds and water levels, though many choose to

exit at Green Mountain Road, the halfway point. 

A nearby gas station there, sells cool treats

and sunscreen.

Coyote Cruises provide rentals and an affordable

shuttle service from Green Mountain Road back

to the launch road.
