Learn how to wakeboard in the warm waters of Canada’s hottest destination.

Not what one would normally expect when you hear the words “room and board”, the Watermark Beach Resort’s ‘Room & Board’ package takes seasoned or want-to-be wakeboarders out on the crystal clear waters of Osoyoos Lake in the Okanagan for some adrenaline-pumping, heart-thumping fun. Whether you are a novice wakeboarder wanting to step up your game, or just want to see the kids pulled around the lake by Wakepilot’s team of certified professionals. 


Priced starting at $477.00 for two based on double occupancy, the ‘Room & Board’ package is available between June 18 and September 11, 2010 and includes two-nights of luxurious waterfront accommodation, 5-hours of wakeboard instruction, and Deluxe Continental Breakfast each day.
A cousin to other board sports like surfing and snowboarding, wakeboarding takes thrill-seekers on a specially designed board towed behind a purpose-built boat. Since first appearing on the watersports scene in the mid-1980’s, wakeboarding continues to be the fastest growing watersport thanks to its accessibility to everyone from ages 4 to 80. Wakepilot in Osoyoos led by Rob Rausch and Simon Davis has been taking guests out on the water for over seven years. Hailed as the “hottest destination in Canada”, the warm, still waters of Osoyoos Lake makes it perfect for wakeboarders.
The new 153-suite Watermark Beach Resort is the ideal place to relax and unwind following a thrilling day on the water. Each of the Penthouse, Studio, One, Two and Three-bedroom Suites offer all the comforts and conveniences of home, including stainless steel kitchen appliances, deep soaking tubs, flat-screen televisions in the master bedrooms and living areas, and private balconies with breathtaking views of the lake or desert landscape. The hotel’s complement of amenities includes a yoga studio, fitness facility, steam room, hot tubs and outdoor pool. Kick back, relax and enjoy the sunset at the Watermark Wine Bar & Patio, serving up a wide selection of the regions finest wines and local produce.
Located 396 kilometres  (246 miles) from Vancouver or 457 kilometers (284 miles) from Seattle and accessible via either Kelowna International Airport or Penticton Airport, Osoyoos boasts Canada’s driest climate with the lowest rainfall and highest temperatures in the country. Best known for the multitude of wineries and orchards that dot the region, Osoyoos also offers a wide range of activities from fishing, horseback riding and water sports to golf, cultural experiences, hiking and fine dining.
