MEET YOUR NEEDS AT DOWNTOWN MARINA
Few areas in the Okanagan can offer the convenience of the Downtown Marina. Based in the heart of the city’s downtown core along the scenic waterfront of Okanagan Lake, the Marina is a boater’s number one stop to refuel, restock on supplies, or simply take a break from the water to explore the many restaurants, local businesses and plethora of services that are never too far away.
Whether you’re staying for a day enjoying watersports or staying for a week mooring at the far reaches of Okanagan
Lake, Downtown Marina has everything you need to keep your on-water vacation thriving. In fact, the Marina offers 68 moorage slips ranging from 6.7 m (22 ft) to up to a maximum of 13 m (42 ft) with additional access if you’re picking up guests or just visiting Kelowna for a few hours.
Daily rates—starting from $5 for a half-hour, $10 for an hour and $5 per hour thereafter—offer boaters flexible options, no matter how long or short the stay. Or, perhaps extend your marina experience with nightly rates, which start at $3.10 per foot or ask about their weekly rates to get the best value. Remember, it’s best to book well in advance during the peak summer season.
Further convenience for boaters is the fact that the Marina is open from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., providing plenty of time during the morning, day or evening to make the most of its amenities. The Marina offers 91 Octane gas so you can refuel, and its store offers ice, basic boating essentials, snacks as well as cold beverages. Or, you can walk along the pier towards downtown Kelowna where dining and shopping await.
For those wishing to explore the lake or spend the day on the water, Downtown Marina offers everything you need for an Okanagan adventure. If you like watersports, current towboats from Mastercraft as well as kayaks and paddle boards are available to rent. Yet, if relaxing cruises are more your speed, opt for the available models from Cobalt, Chaparral, Sea-Doo, Sweetwater and Bennington. Whatever your needs, knowledgeable staff members are ready to assist and address any concerns about safety, running operations, and boating regulations.
One of the main conveniences of the Marina, however, is access to the land from water – or vice versa – as the downtown area was revitalized to enjoy the best of both worlds. Its 350foot long floating pier with a seating pavilion extends out into Okanagan Lake for unbeatable views. With expansive park grounds nearby, you can relax for an afternoon to enjoy a picnic or meet up with friends and family. Add the fact that restaurants are never too far away – meaning you can be seated at a table and enjoying a cocktail 10 minutes after mooring your boat – and your visit to the area can be enjoyed that much more by visiting Downtown Marina.
