Gyro Beach Watersports enchants amphibious customers with a fleet of citrus-coloured rental boats and a floating water park on Okanagan Lake. Drifters can summon the buoyant talents of a single-person kayak to shepherd them along fresh-water rivers or help them smuggle supplies to beavers on dam arrest. The breezy beach shack swaddles all mariners in life jackets for their 60-minute paddle cruise and outfits kayaks with travel instructions to observe as they nose through the Kelowna wildlife. Visitors yearning to invigorate their water adventures with some energizing airtime can scale the floating jungle gym of Gyro's giant water park, which launches bouncers from three full-sized trampolines. The mammoth aqua stage also thrills patrons with an 11-foot-high slide, while, like a childproof cannon, a mega seesaw sends merrymakers flying for better views of 1,500 metres of sandy beaches.
Water-park equipment, such as trampolines, the slide, and the teeter-totter, is only available July through August.
Gyro Beach Watersports
The staff at Gyro Beach Watersports believes "fun in the sun" is the only way to take full advantage of a summer day. Staffers dedicate their workdays to launching clients into the sparkling water of Okanagan Lake, whether they are paddling in a one-seat kayak or jumping atop a 13-foot water trampoline. At the Giant Water park, located 250 yards from the shore, swimmers leap on bouncy platforms, slide down inflatable equipment, and walk air-filled balance beams, happily slipping into the welcoming, cool lake. For relatively dry fun, the staff pairs visitors with inflatable rafts for relaxing soaks in the sun, or standup paddleboards for on-water gondolier training.
