Tons of fun!!
We love the channel river ride and have been coming for yeArs! So fun and relaxing. Bring sunscreen and a drink. There is nothing unorganized about it but if you are going to show up in the middle of a hot day, then bring your own floatie! They have tons of tubes but tons of people can show up by the middle of the day too lol. Coyote cruises is a great deal, $5 for a bus ride, $5 for a tube how can you beat that?
I can imagine if you are not from here this experience possibly not working out well for you as in previous posts. We are from Kelowna and plan every year to do the Penticton channel at least once if not more times if possible. It is well worth it but we plan well. We pick a day with nice weather, bring all our tubes, floating chairs or whatever you would like to be on for a long period. Put on sunscreen before you go. We usually bring a small boat from dollar store for a towel or two, snacks, cooler with drinks etc..., also a few short pieces of rope to tie a few of us together (not too many as you have to plan when you go under bridges so you don't get caught up) There are usually two families or our family bring two cars so we can park at each end of where we want to start and finish. If you plan, you will have a blast! Our kids have always loved to bring their mask and snorkels and spend a considerable amount of time in the water looking for what treasures lurk below (but they are fish that LOVE the water, have to be a good swimmer and recommended for older children) When you are getting to the end, pay attention and GET OUT!
Relax and enjoy, worth the hassle:)
We went there around 2pm on aug 10, we waited in the Half an hour line to pay for a tube and a bus ride. When we finally got to the front of the line to pay, the girl decided to tell us they had no more tubes and it would be an hour and a Half wait. Meanwhile there are still at least 30 people in line behind us they had no intention of telling there were no tubes, but instead would make them wait. So we then had to walk down the street to buy floaties which ended up being $20 instead of the $5 we were supposed to spend. This was not organized at all, and was a waste of time and money as we are from out of town and had to take the day to do this
