What people have to say about their Waterway Houseboats Vacation.
We have a small company and we were looking for a quick get away, private planning session for our group. We got referred to Waterway Houseboats, who offered us a perfect venue. They helped with all of our requests, including some catered food. The houseboat was the perfect, comfortable and secluded spot for what we planned. it also gave us the option for fun recreation along the way. Highly recommend Waterway!
Thank you Waterway! Just wanted to leave a review, because so often people only see the negative stuff. We have vacationed all over the world and at so many resorts and we were very impressed with Waterway's service and the condition of the houseboats. We heard that sometimes some of the houseboats that are rentals were not in the best shape, but ours was beautiful! From what we could see and hear on dock, all the boats are well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful and just wanted to thank Colleen in particular, for truly going above and beyond! Our time on the lake was restful and fun. We got to see alot and really look forward to coming back for some more adventures and exploration!
We are just getting excited thinking about our return to the Shuswap this summer. 2 years ago, we had a fabulous trip out on the lake with Waterway and took advantage of their amazing rebook special. We booked for this year, as it is our parents 50th wedding anniversary and this will be the perfect way to celebrate! The boats are very comfortable and offer great amenities, but of course the beautiful lake is the main attraction. Counting the days and can't wait!
Have gone boating with Waterways twice already and doing our 3rd trip this summer! Wouldn't pick another company for sure. Boats are all top notch and the staff has always been flexible and helpful with getting our trips ready. I feel like some people expect everything to go perfect on their trips but I can only imagine how hard it is to maintain these floating houses and manage how many boats a day. There are little hiccups here and there but never anything that has made our trip less enjoyable. We've been understanding of waterways and I feel like they return the favour and don't nitpick over a missing spoon or something. Just go with the flow and you'll have a great time!
Our group of friends decided to do something we had wanted to do for a long time. Last summer we rented a beautiful houseboat called Haymaker, from Waterway Houseboats. This is a big, deluxe boat and it was just amazing. Some of our shipmates even said it was better than their house haha. I was a little nervous about driving the boat though, as I had never really been boating much. They assured me that it would be fine and it was. Matt on the dock gave us a good going over on operating the boat before we left and it is much easier than I had thought. Matt was great, very friendly and helpful and listened patiently to our questions. Once we got out on the lake, it was a dream come true. The Shuswap is so beautiful and we got to go wherever we wanted. We really enjoyed the hike to Albas Falls and the campfires at night. The lake was warm and really relaxing to just swim around without a care in the world. Definitely can't wait to go back!
I just got together with the group of friends we went houseboating with last summer and thought I'd drop this review. We have gone several times with a couple of companies and we will be going back to Waterway this summer. We had such a blast and everything was close to perfect. We also rented a couple of seadoos from the activity centre there, which really rounded out the trip. We lucked out with hot, sunny weather too. The houseboat was so awesome and everyone loved the tubeslide. It was great to beach with a large group of other houseboats, quite the great party at night! You can certainly get away from that too, as the lake is huge. Everyone has to try this vacation out, it's amazing. Thanks Waterway for the best time!
