Voyageur Canoe Tour to Paul's Tomb
Paddle in a voyageur canoe from Sutherland Park in Kelowna to the site of what was once the family retreat of Rembler Paul, one of Kelowna’s earlier residents. At this sheltered bay, paddlers can enjoy a swim and snack and learn about the cultural and natural history of the area. Length of tour is 3 to 4 hours.

Voyageur Canoe Tour on Vaseux Lake

Paddle, by voyageur canoe, to the fascinating and secret places of Vaseux Lake where wildlife abounds along the lush lake margins and where orioles and eagles are often seen. The area also hosts a healthy population of California Big Horn Sheep. Cruise along the shoreline beneath the shadow of magnificent McIntyre Bluff. An optional hike on the west side of the lake will allow you to further explore this unique protected grassland area. Our extended trip also includes a hike to the top of McIntryre Gluff for a spectacular panoramic view of the local area.  Vaseux Lake is a 20-minute drive from Penticton.  Participants bring their own snacks and bag lunches for this tour.



Voyageur Canoe Tour on the Shuswap River

Travel from Ashton Creek to Grindrod by voyageur canoe on the Shuswap River.  The upper section of the river above Enderby is quite wild with nice, sweeping bends, crystal clear water and white sandy beaches while the lower section is quite pastoral.  Altogether it makes for a very picturesque canoe trip of around 6 hours duration.  Participants bring their own snacks and bag lunches for this tour.  Participants will meet at the Enderby  Chamber of Commerce prior to convoying to the point of departure.  A vehicle shuttle will be required for this trip.
