Penticton Channel Short Term Forecast
The Penticton River Channel also known as the Okanagan River Channel is a man-made water channel that was first created in the 1950s to control flooding and water flow from the Okanagan Lake to Skaha Lake. The 7 km (4 miles) river is a great past time for swimming paddling and snorkeling. However the most popular method of transportation is to relax on a tube (available for rental) or flotation device and drift down the river on a warm sunny day and enjoy the typically mild current. The adventure down the river can last about three hours and there are shuttle services available to take you back for a small fee.This part of Okanagan Lake has generally met water quality objectives for nitrogen and phosphorus.
