    WOW! This was my first time renting a pontoon boat with tubing for a family reunion and it was beyond amazing!
    Brad was very knowledgeable and easy going and took us from Peachland marina to rattlesnake island, swimming in a beautiful bay, cliff diving for my 13 yr old nephew and lots of tubing. So convenient for us to have pick up/drop off in Peachland! I can’t recommend Luxury Lake Tours enough!!!

    What an fantastic experience! We were met at the boat launch on time and the boat was gorgeous! We were treated to a fantastic Okanagan day and would use this service again.

    Great range of boats to rent and superb service from knowledgeable staff. One of the best marina's on the lake if not the best

    So much fun great experience despite the smoke. The only recommendation I would make is the ladder needs to be sturdier very difficult getting in and out of the boat. This is a must experience for all ages.

    Took the family out for their first time in a motorboat on Lake Okanagan - far exceeded their expectations. Riding the tube was a huge hit!
    John was a pleasure to deal with and made the whole process easy and enjoyable.
    Will definitely be booking with him again next year.

    I highly recommend this trip with the Sunwave Team, they are efficient, hospitable and knowledgeable about the Lake and all it has to offer with its breath-taking views of the valley.

    I was really hopeful to be able to rent a kayak and explore the lake when visiting Kelowna this week! I wwd texting with Kellie (one of the owners) for a few weeks off and on about renting a kayak and things to do in the area. Super helpful and very quick at replying to any questions I sent. This Sunday the weather finally cooperated and I was able to rent a kayak and get out on the lake and it was better than expected! I cannot wait to come back and explore some more and get out on the lake again! I highly recommend this company for rentals and will be using them again! The staff at the Gyro Beach location was so sweet and friendly and I even got to meet Barry (another owner) and he was so kind and we chatted about Kelowna.

    6 of us had a great time sailing on Okanagan Lake with Captain Mark and first mate Stacey. Very professional service from both and a great attitude. So much fun. Definitely recommend!

    Great experience and a lot of fun with the jet surf boards! Was very easy to pick up, so we were able to surf standing up for the entirety of our experience. Our only caveat/recommendation for Surf Okanagan is to have a better introduction/orientation. The instructors were great but they could've gone over in more detail where we were going, how to turn on the boards, how to stand properly on the boards etc.

    32 degrees of heat and captain Craig helping our teens have an awesome day on the lake! we spent 3 hours on a brand new wake surfing boat with Craig and his great attitude and expert coaching for our teens (15-18) who wake surfed the whole time. the older adults enjoyed the sights around the lake and all the knowledge Craig had for every question we asked. When it got too hot, a dip in the lake while stopped cooled us off perfectly. We would recommend Off The Grid to any group, families, friends, or surfers far from home who need a top boat to surf behind. Thanks so much Craig for a great afternoon.

    If you love history this bike tour is for you. Larry, the tour guide, is extremely passionate and knowledgable about the Kettle Valley Railway.

    We recently moved to Kelowna to experience a true Okanagan lifestyle and these guys delivered. I really wanted to buy a boat but know nothing about it. Every boat looks good to me. A friend recommended this company and their membership plan. He said it was amazing and hassle free. Almost sounded too good to be true so I decided to call in and got lucky when I got the owner on the phone. He explained the membership details and what’s all in tell. I signed up and it’s probably the best money I spend since I moved here. They boys Trey, Luke and Kyle are always on time and the guys have the boat clean and full of gas. Super friendly and helpful with whatever you need. It’s a 5 star class of service and I always have a $20 and the end of my trip. The manager Shawn is straight forward manager and easy to deal with. I think best about this is that convenience of wanting to experience all the different boat, go out whenever you want, just book it online which takes like 2 mins, and no docking, storage any maintenance. Just show up and get off when you’re done. For once this is as advertised, perfect for us new guys or just people who don’t want the hassle.

    UPDATE: So now its coming towards the end of the season and i have used the membership for 4 months i can firmly say its the best money i've spend in a long time. I can wakesurf without a rope, lost 30lbs and 27% body fat. i knew no one when i first got the membership and now I made tons of new friends who i think will be long time friends and also gained a lot of self confidence from surfing. The team took good care of me and SUPERSTAR AMI whos their heart and soul of the company made booking and everything easy. Kyle, Trey, Luke and the new guy Jeff are some of the best customer service i've received. Shawn the manager is one hard working guy and knows his stuff. They are so accommodating especially as i'm not the best at planning ahead.

    They are always on time and never with a attitude. Also super friendly to my little girl and did something special for my birthday. I cant wait for next season and introduce all my friends to this company. THANKS OKANAGAN LUXURY BOAT CLUB
