About
We offer a unique opportunity to Kelowna visitors and residents alike. We offer point-to-point taxi-like services when required, as well as enjoyable tours and charters for those who want to enjoy some time on the lake. As the ultimate provider of wonderful cruising experiences in Kelowna, join us and make great memories! Our craft is a luxurious 29'-6" Searay bowrider (not a pontoon boat) with soft leather seats. Our service is ideal for any size of group up to 9 passengers because our rates are the same whether you have only a couple of people or if you have 9 participants in your group. From a couple wanting to enjoy a completely private ride to a group of nine wanting to have their own private party, our cruises are ideal and don’t include any additional charges for additional people over a certain limit, and no additional fuel charges for normal cruising speed. We are confident you will find our cruises are a great choice, from luxury, to cost, to ambiance.

My friends and I travelled from Manitoba to Kelowna for the long weekend and our first excursion was with Peter on his boat for two hours. We had such a great time cruising around with Peter and my friends were thrilled with his Irish accent. It was a gorgeous sunny day, and it was made even better with Peter's warm personality and excellent customer service.... Miigwech! Thank you! :)

Peter was a gracious and knowledgeable host. No accommodation to our group was spared. We had a great time on the lake and Peter was a charming and patient host. Peter, thanks again if I could offer 6 stars I would. We left and returned on time in his comfortable craft and he couldn't have been more helpful. When you have 3 teens raving about the ride you know you've done it right.
See you next summer Pete.

While looking for a boat tour during our family trip to Kelowna, we found Kelowna Water Taxi and Cruises and the reviews said to stop scrolling and pick Peter, the reviews were right. From the booking process right through the boat orientation and the tour, including booking our wine tour, Peter was a pleasure to deal with and to be around. Peter is very knowledge about the area, pointing out all the areas visitors may not be familiar with and answerd any questions we had. Peter was a pleasure to be around and was great with kids even letting them help captain the boat!! You can tell Peter is passionate about giving his guests the best experience possible and was very accommodating, willing to set his boat up to our own needs. Once at the Frind Winery Peter showed us the winery and ensured we were taken care of for the tasting and even booked us a table at the restaurant for after the tasting. Even with the slight rain we had on the trip it was still very enjoyable!!
Thanks Peter! From the Parkers

Hello katiepX5245WC Thank you very much for the glowing detailed five star review and taking the time to write it. Furthermore, I am truly humbled by your very kind words. It's meeting families like yours that make what I do so worthwhile. And seeing the smiles on the kids faces as they captained the boat made my day. I do strive to give my guests the best experience possible and I am very so pleased to hear you felt I was a pleasure to deal with through the booking process, the tour and you were taken care for the tasting at Frind Winery including booking you a table at the restaurant, allowing you to enjoy the day as you should. Even with the slight rain you guys took it in your stride and such a pleasure to spend time with. Thank you too for sharing your photos including Emily, Austin and myself. Lovely kids and I love that photo with them, one for the archives for sure. You are very welcome Parkers, thank you for coming out and putting your trust in me. Peter Brady

The cruise and Captain Peter were amazing. Our 4-hour cruise to Peachland around Snake Island then back to Kelowna was wonderful. Totally different perspective seeing Kelowna, West Kelowna and Peachland from the lake. Captain Peter was terrific, he’s a great tour guide, very accommodating and personable that made the cruise a wonderful experience. I recommend Captain Peters private cruise to anyone wanting to experience the Okanagan from the water.

Captain Peter led an absolutely fabulous tour on Lake Okanogan! His knowledge, sense of humour and engaging stories made for a wonderful day on the water!! The tour was exactly as expected and any questions we had about the boat or the area he was able to easily answer. Absolutely recommend!

Was very professional and helpful when it came to booking our personalized experience. Unfortunately we had to cancel due to the fires in BC. But will book with him again. He gave a very prompt refund which we were happy with.

This was by far the highlight of our great trip. Captain Pete was awesome and knowledgeable about Kelowna
He let us bring our own snacks and drinks. We stopped for a swim and had a great lunch at Frind’s winery! Highly recommend this trip to anyone looking for a fun day on the water.

Peter was a superb tour guide! Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Such a great way to see Kelowna from a different view!
The wine tasting and restaurant that he booked for us was also phenomenal. It was just my husband and I on the tour, but the kids would have also immensely enjoyed it. Fun for all ages!
