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 😉

More smaller boats for couples or small families 👍
