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.

Shuswap Winter 2020/2021...

Although we don't get to see all of our guests throughout the winter, we are still busy on the dock and through the shop getting boats prepared for the upcoming season. With constant turn arounds from the start of May through October, our off-season gives us the well-needed break to complete all renovations and repairs to freshen up the fleet! 😎

Lots of the boats stay in the water during the off-season, however much of our renovation work is completed just up Old Town Road in the shop where boats from our fleet get their makeovers before you get to see them next.

Comment and let us know what you want to see! Beaches, boat features, the lake, or the mountains and we will share it with you!

This winter we have enjoyed lots of clear sunny days... but the water isn't as inviting as it will be by July and August 😉
