Very happy 50th anniversary, thank you Peter!
"My wife and I were traveling on an extended RV trip to celebrate our 50th. We had heard about Kelowna and its friendliness as well as its farm/winery opportunities. Now, there is another top notch opportunity you won’t want to miss! Captain Peter is at the top of the game for tourist trips and guides. I found him through Trip Advisor and booked him by phone. We had several conversations up front to nail down exactly what we were interested in and how best he could meet that expectation. The booking was made and he followed up with complete information then confirmed a couple of days before the cruise date.
A couple of hours before departure time, I received a call from him that the boat had a mechanical problem. He committed to keeping me informed and we worked out alternate timings should the work take too long. Through his efforts to get the work done safely, we only delayed by about thirty minutes. As with any boat, I am sure you know these things can happen.
We arrived for the tour and he welcomed us like long lost friends and it got better from there. The lake is beautiful and his stories brought to life the people living around it. His boat is impeccably clean and up to date. He has all safety devices and comfort items. All you might want to bring are snacks (consider snacks that won't blow away since it can get windy on the lake), refreshments or sandwiches, as you desire. The boat handled the waves very well.
Thank you, Peter, for your professionalism and personal commitment. This cruise sets high standards for any other trip. Your personal touches added a world of good times. We hope to see you in Knoxville some day."

Fantastic cruise and hospitality
"Last summer, my wife and I visited Kelowna B.C. and had a most pleasant water cruise of Lake Okanagan. Our host, Captain Peter Brady was thoughtful, informative, and humorous. We had a delightful time and highly recommend Kelowna Water Taxi and Cruises. If you're visiting anywhere in the Okanagan, take the time to take a cruise, you will not regret it. My wife is normally a little frightened of boats and water, but not on this cruise. Mr. Brady was professional in every way, and his detail to safety was second to none. His efforts from his greeting on shore to departure at the end of the day was one of the most pleasant experiences we have had. Hats off to Kelowna Water Taxi and Cruises and in particular the proprietor Peter Brady."
A Wonderful Afternoon with Captain Peter
"My friends and I very much enjoyed our cruise on the Okanagan Lake. Although it was a little cooler than we had hoped, Peter ensured we had fun and shared his knowledge of Kelowna and the area. He was very accommodating and a great communicator. He even managed to move his usual pick up spot so we could simply walk out of our condo and meet him. We had planned a second trip with Peter for a sunset cruise but unfortunately the weather was poor. Peter totally understood our reluctance to cruise in the rain and cold and provided a full refund. Thank you Peter for a wonderful afternoon and we will be back for our sunset cruise!" "Brendartrips"
An amazing experience with Captain Peter!
"We knew we wanted to be on the water for part of our trip to the Okanagan and after reading many reviews, I chose Kelowna Water Taxi and what a great choice I made! We all absolutely loved Peter, and his knowledge of the area and charisma made our day! We highly recommend this to everyone!"
Perfect afternoon on the lake with Captain Peter.
quot;We just spent a wonderful afternoon on the water. Captain Peter is one of the dearest men we have ever met and feel we came away with a new friend! He is knowledgeable of the area, accommodating in where to take you to the best spots on the lake and keen to ensure you have a lovely time. Lots of fun and friendly banter, we are still smiling 2 hours later, the highlight of our visit to Kelowna! Many thanks captain - We will call you when back with family next year! "

Fantastic lake cruise with Peter
"We spent one day in Kelowna and planned to spend it moving around the city and visiting the local vineyards. Travelling on the lake seemed like the perfect way to get from south Kelowna to Downtown. Peter was extremely accommodating. We told him our plans and he was happy to pick us up at the restaurant where we had lunch and drop us off at Downtown. He offered a range of options for travel - a direct travel (20 mins) or a slightly more relaxed cruise.
We opted for a one hour cruise, and I was delighted we did this. Peter was more than happy for us to bring some wine onboard and we were able to relax, take in the gorgeous views, and enjoy a few glasses of wine (glasses provided by Peter). Peter was so friendly and chatty, showing us around the local sights and providing recommendations. He even let us play our own music. It was a joy to travel with Peter and I'd certainly do the same if I'm ever back in Kelowna."
Fun in the Sun with Captain Peter!
"We had a great time with Peter! We felt safe and Peter had plenty of room for the nine of us. He was also more than qualified for the job! We got to play our own music and he picked us up and dropped us off right at our own dock. If you're looking for an enjoyable, relaxing boat cruise with a very knowledgeable and charming captain, Peter is your guy! Definitely recommend this for all groups!"
A Caring Captain...A beautiful Trip!!!
"My husband and I were hosting 2 friends from out of town, and thought we would WOW them with a cruise from our condo's private dock to the dock at The Hotel Eldorado in beautiful Kelowna BC. Our captain, Peter, and his beautiful boat arrived on schedule...and the FUN began. Captain Peter made sure we were comfortably settled and secure with his stellar safety briefing. Then we were OFF...The night was gorgeous, and Peter entertained us on the far too short journey. We were dropped off right on time, and are currently planning our next adventure with Peter at the helm…!"
"My family and I had the pleasure to cruise with Captain Peter, he was a great host and made us feel very comfortable and took us on a 2 hr cruise around the lake. I got to know Peter through a friend and was very happy with the experience the first time, so I had asked him if I could book him again a couple weeks later. That again was a great experience as he always goes above and beyond providing great service. He knew the best spots for pictures and to park the boat for a quick dip in the water, would definitely recommend him."
Amazing experience on Okanagan Lake
"My family and I had such a wonderful time on our two hour cruise of Okanagan Lake with Peter. Peter is a true gentleman and was a pleasure to meet and interact with, from booking through sailing. He really went above and beyond to ensure we had a good time and to meet the needs of our group. He's very knowledgable about the area, plays great music and was lovely to chat with.
Peter was recommended by our hotel and we are very thankful they suggested his company as we had such a great experience. I really can't say enough good things, and would encourage any groups visiting the area to book a boat tour with him! We will definitely be planning to go again next time we are in the area. Thanks again Peter!"
