Sun, surf, sand, and ziplining! Kelowna is an adventure seeker’s paradise. Best of all, Kelowna’s many escapades are family-friendly and offer a great solution to get your kids looking up from their smartphones. Include boat rentals in your itinerary to enjoy an adventure on the water.

Catch a wave

    Turn your kids’ frowns upside down by renting a boat and going for an adventure on Okanagan Lake. There are boats abound at Kelowna’s Downtown Marina, where you find everything from powerboats and pontoon boat rentals to wake surf and wakeboard boats and Sea-Doo rentals.

    Plus, you can rent a vast selection of water toys, including:

    • Surfboards
    • Tubes
    • Waterskis
    • Wakeboards

    Families wishing to hug the shore and get a little more exercise can also choose kayak and Kelowna SUP rentals.

    Use some pedal power

      Kelowna has bike trails and lanes for every level of cyclist, including exhilarating downhill single tracks, flowing cross country trails, off-road cement biking lanes, and two rail trails that traverse some of the most beautiful terrains in the Okanagan. Several bike rental businesses allow you to rent e-bikes, mountain bikes, cross-country bikes, and cruisers.
