Experience one of British Columbia’s legendary adventure vacations on Shuswap Lake. Twin Anchors has been hosting guests since 1977 – that’s a long list of happy houseboaters! Get your crew together and start planning your houseboat adventure today – we have boats available from April through to October.

Houseboating is a memorable experience – perfect for small family get-aways, groups up to 24 (invite some really good friends!), weddings and corporate events. Captains of our houseboats need to be 19 years or older, hold a valid driver’s licence and do not require a Canadian Pleasurecraft Operating Licence as we provide a complete houseboat orientation prior to each group heading out.
