"This summer will be my tenth year in a row organizing and hosting a houseboating trip with Waterways. Beginning with a small group of 7 people, over the years I’ve shared the amazing experiences on your houseboats by enticing more and more friends to attend each time. The popularity of Waterways amongst people I know has expanded to a massive group of 38 friends attending both last year and this year - split over two boats. I'm a big supporter of Waterways - my friends will often ask, "why don't we ever book with other houseboat companies?", to which I respond, "why would we?" - we've never had an issue that couldn't be solved quickly with you, your staff has always been friendly and helpful, and your houseboats are phenomenal. .

Thanks so much for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.

"My crew and i are already looking into rebooking with you for next year! We are already making plans and looking forward to setting sail with waterway once again

Thank you all for such a wonderful experience, we have used other house-boating companies in the past but by far yours is our favorite and we WILL be returning to you again! 
looking forward to seeing you all next year!

"Thank you we were very happy with our family holiday  Unfortunately my eldest son was  sick with the flu the whole trip, but it didn't stop the rest of us from enjoying the trip and the weather. This trip was a memory trip as a family In the previous 10 years my husband and I had always taken our 4 grandchildren in our motor home for a camping holiday as soon as they finished school. Unfortunately my husband passed away last fall. We had always talked about taking them on a houseboat on the Shuswap  They got to have smores and a campfire at night like they loved from all their camping trips Thank you to all who helped make this a memorable experience.  Sincerely Janet Skubiak" June 2016

" What a wonderful way to spend the long weekend with family and friends. The houseboat easily accommodated the 25 adults and children and Waterways were more than generous in providing such a wonderful houseboat and supporting great entertainment on the Shuswap. The concert Saturday afternoon was the icing on the cake.

"Every now and then you get the chance to do something super memorable, and super fun... this past May Long I had the opportunity to cruise the Shuswap in an incredible Waterways Houseboat with some of my best friends and family... we spent three days on the water, and the only thing I'd change about the trip is that it would have been longer. The Waterways staff made us feel so welcome, and so confident before we took to the water, and they were there at any point we needed anything. Gone are the days of the 'camper on a barge' style houseboat... this thing was luxury at it's finest! Granite countertops, comfy beds, even a chandelier that swayed back and forth with the gentle rocking of the boat. I know my friends and I will never forget the experience, and we're definitely planning to do it again... after all, what other type of vacation lets you go out in the wildnerness, on the water, with no one else around but the people you love? It's like camping but way more awesome! Thanks Waterways for the trip of a lifetime:)
