- My sister and I decided to go for a picnic at Skaha Lake Park. Although a little windy, we decided to walk to this lovely beach. As we neared the lake, the wind became more powerful and whipped the water into rough waves. We set up at a table near the Vallarta Grill en La Playa. After ordering our food, we turned our attention to the lake and enjoyed watching five wind surfers as they skimmed over the water, their colourful sails carrying them over the waves. Joining them were seven brave souls parasailing across the lake surface. Their watercraft sported very colourful rigging of different shapes and various designs on these sails. They rode the waves and became airborne at times, giving those that watched them an enjoyable show. After we finished our picnic lunch, we walked long the sandy beach before heading home. It’s wonderful to live in such a beautiful place where one can enjoy swimming, boating, water skiing or watch others as they surf or sail the lake.Written September 17, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- We had a rainy day in Penticton and this was an excellent place to visit. The miniature railway was fun to watch. The ship was amazing and interesting to see how people traveled bag in the day.Written June 22, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- When you go to a boutique winery, you expect to be served some nice wines. Well, when you go to Ruby Blues Winery you get this and a lot more. You will receive a tasting of some stellar varietals and I rank them right up there with any of the other Naramata / Penticton wineries. The grounds are so picturesque and the view looking out over the vineyards down towards Lake Okanagan is so memorable. The 60’s theme is perfectly captured by their use of decorated VW’s But the real treat you will get at RB’s Winery is your interaction with the people who work there. They are very experienced with their varietals, but they have lived here and know the history, the culture and vibe of the wine area. Whether you are served by Kerry, Sharon or Geraldine, you will thoroughly enjoy their knowledge, their passion and their wit in addition to a great tasting. We certainly did and will definitely return again to Ruby Blues with our family & friends.Written October 13, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Beautiful and spectacular views! They had an awesome wine tasting options (all whites, a mix or all reds). Beautiful estate and wine tasting rooms. Good host. Would recommend a visit. Wine is decent tooWritten July 29, 2023
- Short drive from the beach and a short (5 min) walk up. Beautiful views of both Okanagan and Skaha Lakes. How did they get the concrete of the Penticton sign to work???Written September 16, 2022
- Despite the fact that apex is a relatively small ski hill it packs a good punch for its size! A triple chair on the far left of the resort offers great groomer/intermediate terrain and the quad offers great skiing over the rest of the hill! Snow conditions are usually pretty consistent and the weather is often great up there! I’d highly recommend the trees and some of the chutes and bowls if you’re an advanced skier!! Overall it’s a fantastic mountain and I love riding here!Written January 16, 2022
- Originally started in the famous Old Aylmer Fruit and Vegetable Cannery building (historic 1930’s south okanagan facility) in 2000 by Brew Master Terry Schoffer and Ron and Pat Dyck, Cannery Brewing got its namesake after the iconic location. Fast forward to 2015, the cannery took over an old automative garage, passed the torch to Son Ian and Owner/Lead Brewer Ross Thompson but kept the micro-brewery quality we all love!
Downtown and on the KVR, it’s the perfect location to visit after a bike ride, for happy hour or in search of epic brews!
Grab a seat, order some incredible pub fare and sip amazing craft beers! 🥨🍺🏆🥪🌮
Had great service from Shay and Calen.Written March 28, 2023
- Our visit to Pentage Winery was first class from beginning to end.
Just a short drive from Skaha Lake in South Penticton, Pentage Winery is beautifully situated overlooking the lake.
The tasting room is welcoming, roomy and breezy on a warm day. Tasting fees are refunded with purchase. In addition to numerous wines, Pentage had juice, cheeses and chilled wines available for purchase. Shaded picnic tables (overlooking Skaha Lake) are a really nice touch.
We were offered a variety of wines and sampled several. We very much enjoyed both their whites and reds. The entire tasting experience was greatly enhanced by a host who introduced each of the wines enthusiastically, providing background information and thoughtful insight.
Highly recommended for locals and visitors to the South Okanagan.Written August 10, 2023
- I've been a club member for more than a year and had the chance to taste some of the wines prior to visiting. I was looking forward to this tasting.
We tasted all of their wines and it is on the top of the list of the wines we had in the valley. The reds are soooo good and will get better if aged.
We had the chance to talk with the owner, John, for a good 10 minutes. We really appreciated this. Thanks for the chat, John.
I will definitely come back to this winery when I'm back in this region.Written August 5, 2022
- Set in the old Penmar movie theatre TIME Family of Wines bridges past with present in this beautiful urban winery. State of the art, elegant and cosmopolitan with its refurbished ceiling and beams it’s both alluring and warm. Created by the legendary McWatters family(2018) whom were one of the pioneers in the valley (Sumac Ridge) now pass the torch to Ron & Shelley Mayert with every intention to maintain the wonderful legacy.
WM Lynzee Schatz is a new addition but this Charles Sturt University graduate has made wine in Ontario, Australia, and California. Very personable and passionate about great wine.
A special and celebratory night with the unveiling of their new passion project and direction, OROLO. A slight remodel, new perspective on dining and stunning cocktail bar this is comfortably the breath of fresh air the South Okanagan needed.
Culinary Director Chef Kirk Morrison (George Brown, apprenticed with Chef Lynn Crawford at Four Seasons, Restaurant 18, Cibo Trattoria, Saltlik) is pairing with Head Chef Damian Cole and Dan Vichitthavong to present a beautifully crafted seasonal, locally sourced menu. Focus is high quality dry-aged BC farmed beef along with lovely seafood, vegetarian and local favourite options (the burger!). Sensational! Chef Morrison’s expertise, energy and passion definitely translates through to the presentation. I’ve always enjoyed Chef Cole’s menu and this refresh showcases his talent!
Seeing Harry’s vision carry forward with the Mayert’s and with new life of Chef Morrison the McWatters family can be proud! Can’t wait to come back- it’s a “must visit”!
Thank you Christa-Lee for the invite, Orolo is destined for great things! Thank you Lavina for the wonderful and warm service and setting up the private tour with Tom. Pleasure to meet you Chef Morrison and I wish for your success! 🏆🍷🥂🍇
If you enjoy the lovely wine experience here you should see the satellite location at the world class District Wine Village! 🍷🥂☀️Written March 23, 2023
- The main gates were still closed for the season when we arrived, so we are very happy we found the alternative car park at the end of Evergreen drive. There were only 2 other cars there and only saw a couple of rock climbers out on the hike - a real hidden treasure! Snow was turning to slush, so cleats came in very handy. The initial climb had me stripped down to a t-shirt within 10 minutes, great views across the city and Lake, some more technical sections involved a bit of scrambling and path finding. We tried finding the bat cave but it the paths are not signposted at all, so ended up sitting at the peak and soaking up the sun for a bit instead. Relied on the mapsme and strava apps to find our way. As someone who hates elevation gain, the epic scenery made the effort well worth it (be sure to go on a clear day!)Written February 10, 2022

- Born out of recognition that the ultimate goal is BALANCE- in life and in wine. Award winning and certified member of Sustainable Winegrowing BC Tightrope Winery is estate-grown and family owned (Lyndsay and Graham O’Rouke). After enjoying the ski life in Whistler, the couple decided to pursue their passion of winemaking by moving to New Zealand and study oenology and viticulture. Returned back to Canada in 2007 to work in the Industry and then in 2012 starting their dream project.
Small lot featuring Riesling, Viognier, Pinot Gris, Pinot Noir and Merlot with small plantings of both Cabernet Franc and Barbera.
Had a memorable and informative visit with Manager Andrea who is passionate and fun. Great to meet Graham and learn more about their ideology and approach.
Very well done! 🏆🥂🍷🍇Written March 27, 2023
