A legendary British Columbia Houseboat Vacation

Good Friends. Legendary Service. Luxurious Houseboats.

Experience one of British Columbia’s legendary adventure vacations on Shuswap Lake. Twin Anchors has been hosting guests since 1977 – that’s a long list of happy houseboaters! Get your crew together and start planning your houseboat adventure today – we have boats available this summer and fall.

Houseboating is a memorable experience – perfect for small family get-aways, groups up to 24 (invite some really good friends!), weddings and corporate events. Captains of our houseboats need to be 19 years or older, hold a valid driver’s licence and do not require a Canadian Pleasurecraft Operating Licence as we provide a complete houseboat orientation prior to each group heading out.

Booking your Houseboat

Depending on the model of houseboat and timeframe you want (CruiseCraft Vs and long weekends book out a year in advance); we recommend you book at least 6 months in advance. Need a commitment from family and friends? We will hold a boat for up to 10 days before your reservation deposit is required.

To confirm your reservation on a Cruiser, CruiseCraft I,II,III and IV houseboats, a deposit of $500 is required. The CruiseCraft V requires an initial deposit of $1500. Your deposit is applied to the charter fee and can be paid by credit card or money order.  Check houseboat availability online!
