Having previously visited Kelowna in the colder winter months, we were really looking forward to a late summer sail on the lake. Captain Al did not disappoint. We spent a relaxing two hour cruise - spotting ospreys, looking for bighorn sheep, experiencing and listening to tales of the lake (a bear who visited the marina!). Our only disappointment was that we didn't have time for another sailing trip with Captain Al. But I'm sure we will be back!

I had never been on a sail boat cruise before and I am sure glad I chose this one and Captain Al had room for me. I had the pleasure of meeting Captain Al, his special Granddaughter Bella and sister Lynn. We took off from the marina and went around the lake, with Captain Al telling us many stories of the lake, the homes, the tug boats (still working the lake) etc. I would highly recommend this sail boat cruise as they are very personable. Thanks again. Jamie

We had the pleasure of riding with Al and his sister. Both very friendly people! We were given picture books and story after story. It was incredible the amount of stories and topics he knew about the lake. Most of the stories he tells even have pictures back it up. Al knows where lots of people live on the lake and the history of some of the houses. Such a neat experience. He even has drinks and snacks to top it off! Would recommend!!!

Captain Al was very professional with a ton of knowledge about the area. The boat was very clean and ready to go! I would recommend this to anyone near and far! He made us feel welcome and he also took a lot of photos which were perfect for the occasion! This was a definite 10 out of 10! Thanks Captain Al!

My husband and daughter were on a morning tour with Al. Al met us at the boat with a warm welcome. The weather was in our favour that we sailed and motored the lake. Al's knowledge and history of the area was impeccable. We had an opportunity to take the wheel. Al is a patient person. We would highly recommend this tour for everyone. Thanks Captain Al.
