DATES & TIMES

SPRING

The Shuswap is magic. Days are warm, evenings crisp, and the fishing is excellent. Prize rainbow, lakers, dolly varden and kokanee make the lake their home. And remember our houseboats come equipped with a fireplace and hot tub to keep you warm and cozy. *(The Cruiser does not include a fireplace or hot tub). Fishing licences are required on Shuswap Lake and are available online or at the Twin Anchors Gift Shack.

SUMMER

Brings the extraordinary pleasures of cruising and swimming in the crystal clear waters of Shuswap Lake. Off the water there are a variety of side trips available – ranging from novice to advanced – including majestic waterfalls, hiking trails and secret sandy coves. This is the most popular time of the year – so book early.

FALL

The perfect time for those seeking a more tranquil vacation. The lake is still warm from the summer heat, the beaches are quiet and the evenings are perfect for relaxing in your hot tub. And for nature lovers, the Shuswap puts on a full show in the fall – pumpkin orange to scarlet with all the colours in between. Sunsets, moonlight, stars and more stars – and if you time it right… northern lights. Get on board!

The vacation year at Twin Anchors is broken up into three seasons –  Low, Mid and Peak. All are colour coded on our calendars. Once you’ve decided when you’d like to depart, book early to avoid disappointment. Remember, we will hold a houseboat for up to 10 days without obligation.

2023 SEASONS
PEAK JUNE 29 – AUGUST 30
MID JUNE 8 – JUNE 28
AUGUST 31 – SEPTEMBER 13
LOW  MAY 1 – JUNE 7
SEPTEMBER 14 – OCTOBER 9

DEPARTURE AND RETURN TIMES

ARRIVAL Captains are assigned a time to arrive (10 days before trip) for office registration and then will be scheduled for an orientation after registration paperwork is completed.

BOARDING: Once your boat is ready (mechanical, maintenance, cleaning, dock has done all the necessary checks) your boat will be assigned by our office. This takes time and varies depending on boat size, issues, etc. Your crew will be boarding once the boat is assigned to your group.
RETURN: ALL HOUSEBOATS: Between 8AM and 10AM on the final day

Did you know, to anchor our boats you actually have to stake down into shore?! 🏖⚓️
Every evening you pick a beach you like and set up camp! So you can float during the day and rest at the campfire each night! 🔥
Houseboating truly is a beach getaway!! Book your 2023 summer vacation today!! ☀️

FYI. If you go before the middle of July, these beaches are underwater. A little harder to find somewhere to beach but still a lot of fun to cruise around.

Make sure you stake it good! Otherwise if some stormy weather comes around you’ll have a sideways houseboat! Not fun!

One of the best vacations I’ve ever been on!!!

All I can say is hammer those pegs down as far as they say to do it. Lol.
