Ver­non Boasts Boat­ing Ac­cess To Three Lakes

Suncruiser West Coast - - Front Page -

Ex­pe­ri­ence the rush of wind in your hair and feel your adren­a­line pump as you glide across Okana­gan Lake on a speed boat in Ver­non. Boat­ing and wa­ter sports are a part of life in Ver­non, from spring to fall with three lakes that sur­round the city and an­other 100 lakes within one hour’s drive away. Pop into town and grab a pic­nic lunch for the boat, there’s plenty of cafes and shops to choose from.

You can rent every­thing you need here from boats to boards to life jack­ets. Ex­pe­ri­ence the colour­ful wa­ters of Kala­malka Lake by boat or pad­dle board, or even bounc­ing across the sur­face on an in­ner tube. Kala­malka is a marl lake that show­cases colours from deep in­digo to teal in the sum­mers. For the more ad­ven­tur­ous, try wake surf­ing as you whisk across the lake. For some­thing slower paced, hop into a ca­noe or kayak and ex­plore our many coves and in­lets. Get in touch with na­ture and your bal­ance as you nav­i­gate the wa­ter on a stand-up pad­dle board.

Delve into the se­cret un­der­wa­ter world of Okana­gan Lake at the only marine dive park in the Okana­gan for snorkelling and scuba div­ing. Bring your own boat or rent one lo­cally. You might even catch a glimpse of the Ogo­pogo.

Swan Lake is a shal­lower and qui­eter lake for those who live to fish and wish to ex­pe­ri­ence some of the best bird watch­ing in BC from the sur­round­ing wet­lands. It’s a breed­ing, nest­ing and mi­gra­tion haven for ducks, wa­ter­fowl, marsh birds and more.

Our lakes are heaven for those who love to spend a day on the lake fish­ing. Check out the large shoal ar­eas at the south­ern end of Kala­malka Lake. Cast deep and draw in rain­bow trout or a koka­nee. On Okana­gan Lake, get ready to bat­tle for koka­nee, lake white­fish, bur­bot and rain­bow trout that can reach over 9 kg!

Take time away from the boat to en­joy the sandy beaches and en­joy a swim. Of course, in town you can ex­plore our lo­cal shops and restau­rants. Check out the fresh lo­cal fruits, pro­duce and ar­ti­san of­fer­ings at the Ver­non Farm­ers’ Mar­ket. En­joy fam­ily fun at Dav­i­son Or­chards. De­light your taste buds with Ver­non’s tast­ing trail for food­ies or the winer­ies of the Scenic Sip in Lake Coun­try.

What­ever, you de­cide to do – we have plenty of lakes to ex­plore. www.touris­mver­non.com
