About
Sunshine Houseboats and Marina is located on Lake Koocanusa, one of British Columbia’s most beautiful natural playgrounds! Our Waterpark is a very popular summer attraction, proving to be an innovative way for locals and tourists to enjoy the water. We also have seadoos, SUPs, canoes, kayaks, sport and pontoon boats in addition to our houseboat rentals to enjoy the beauty found on Lake Koocanusa. At just 3.5 hours from Calgary, 1 hr from Fernie and Cranbrook, we are too close not to join the fun!

We had a wonderful time out on the lake in a double decker pontoon. The favorite part was the slide!! The staff is amazing and the whole process is effortless!!! This is our 4th year renting from them and we will definitely be coming back next summer!!

Our 3 families had an awesome time. Boat was very good, service was EXCELLENT having courteous, helpful staff all around. This was our third time houseboating with Sunshine and there is a reason we keep coming back.
The lake is beautiful, with better sand than a few of the beaches I have been to in Mexico. Almost no bugs. Clear blue, warm water. Kookanusa still seems to be a bit of a hidden gem, but not sure why. Everything about the area is wonderful, and experiencing it on a houseboat makes it that much better!

The park was amazing. However there was a large group parked beside us on the dock. They had so many people that the blocked the whole dock. They had dogs that were roaming around. They were smoking and they had kids that were fishing off the dock into the swimming area. I found them very offensive and rude and it was difficult for us to get in and out of the water. I searched for someone to speak with them about the kids fishing and leaving room for people to pass but was unable to find anyone to assist.

Super affordable day trip with the family! Enjoyed the whole day! It also kept the kids busy enough for us parents to relax and enjoy the lake as well!

We love visiting Sunshine houseboats and Marina for the floating water park. The prices are reasonable and it’s easy to access for families. Our kids love it! They have also updated the bathrooms and have fixed some areas that needed maintenance so this year was even more enjoyable! The cafe is still a favourite!!

First time doing a houseboat holiday, and we had a fantastic time.
We had our dog with us and he just loved it to, it was the end of the season so we had the lake to ourselves.
We found lovely little sandy beaches to dock on a night so our dog loved splashing around and playing in the sand.
The hot tub was just lovely it’s heated by gas so gets nice and hot for cool nights.
It was such a chilled out holiday for us.
