The leisurely cruise departs at 6 p.m. and sails passengers past views of City Park and the shimmering lights of the city skyline. Boats pass under the William R. Bennett Bridge and coast by opulent homes and lakeside vineyards as the sun descends. During the cruise, duelling pianists or DJs spinning classic-rock hits underscore the scenery. Passengers can add dinner for an additional $20, which includes a buffet-style salad bar, buns, and a choice of cedar-plank salmon or chili-peach-barbecued chicken. Boats return to port around 8 p.m.
Cruises are scheduled Sunday–Thursday with occasional departures on Fridays and Saturdays, which must be booked at least one week in advance. Call ahead to reserve your time.
The Lake Lounge on Okanagan
Even as it soars across the deep, clear blue waters of Lake Okanagan, the Lake Lounge keeps its passengers, crew, and cooperative stowaways connected to a bevy of land-based pleasures. A comprehensive sound system blasts pleasurable beats throughout its two decks, and three flat-screen TVs reaching widths up to 50 inches broadcast the passengers' choice of entertainment. On the lower deck, vaulted ceilings soar over dinner tables and an electric fireplace keeps the room warm in colder weather, and on the open top deck passengers bask in lake breezes and take in panoramic views of the water and evergreen-coated shoreline. When not focused on the scenery, they step across an elevated dance floor lit by multicoloured lights or discuss their favourite childhood pet fish over tipples from a fully stocked bar.
Dinner-cruise passengers sup on a daily-changing menu that cycles through regular entrees such as cedar-plank salmon and peach barbecue chicken. As the Lake Lounge sails past opulent lakeside homes and the city skyline, the sun colours the sky as it sets and the stars sleepily stumble into place to form their constellations. The ship's crews also host wedding receptions, family reunions, and birthday parties on the dual decks.
