RESERVATIONS:

For Signature Tour bookings, a 50% deposit is required at the time of booking. Deposits require a valid credit card. The remaining balance is due 48 hours in advance of your scheduled tour date. Remaining balance can be paid using e-transfer, debit or credit card. All prices exclude applicable taxes & gratuity. For a Private Signature Tour booking we require 8 or more people.

CANCELLATION POLICY:

Deposits are fully refundable for cancellations or changes made 14 days or more prior to the reservation. Sip & Anchor reserves the right to retain deposits for cancellations or reductions of the number of guests made less than 14 days prior to the reservation date, or in the case of no-shows.

WAIVER:

All passengers are required to read & sign a waiver release agreement form prior to boarding the boat. This can be provided via email or at the time of your arrival.

WEATHER NOTE: 

We will wine tour rain or shine! In the case of poor weather forecast, we do our best to provide 24 hours weather-watch notice for the boat portion of the trip. If we do not end up boating, we can reschedule a 2 hour charter (based on availability) or provide a refund of $50 per person, or, if there is availability we can extend the wine tour. Contact us for more info.

The Captain reserves the right to cancel the boat tour portion due to bad weather conditions. Guests will have the opportunity to add 2 additional wineries, or a cidery and brewery to their tour.

CONDITIONS:

Sip & Anchor reserves the right to change tour vehicles, guides, departure times, &/or winery & restaurant itineraries. Your reservation assumes release of the operator from liability or any assumption of claims, risks & indemnity.

GRATUITY:

To minimize cash transactions, consider incorporating the gratuity for the guide at the time of booking. This eliminates the necessity to tip your guide following the tour since everything is prearranged! Nonetheless, if you feel that your guide went above and beyond, providing outstanding service, a cash tip is always appreciated.

Great experience all around! Danielle was incredibly responsive and was able to accommodate us on very short notice. The boat was beautiful and our captain, Jonny, was excellent. Perfect way to tour the lake!

I had the pleasure of taking a luxury wine tour with Sip & Anchor last week when I was visiting Kelowna and let me tell you it was amazing! The driver was so courteous, he always carried our wine purchases back to the beautiful private SUV we had 😍 he was also very knowledgeable about the city’s history and vineyards we stopped at, as well as very funny and kind! The entire booking process was seamless. They organized a trip that suited our winery preferences, pick up/ drop off (door to door), and a beautiful location for us to have lunch. They definitely went the extra mile for our girls trip and we will 100% be taking a Sip & Anchor trip again next year when we come back! 5 stars 100% !

We were in town during a long weekend and we’re wondering if boat wine tours existed. We had sent a few notes to tours Friday of the long weekend and Sip and Anchor were the only ones that responded and able to accommodate on short notice. Unfortunately we weren’t able to join them on the tour but the customer service we received from Danielle was fantastic. I know the tour would have been amazing too and i’m excited to join them the next time I find myself in Kelowna.

A group of us planned a weekend for a friend's Bachlorette and arranged The Signature tour for one of our days and it was incredible to say the least! Danielle was amazing to communicate with and despite some bumps in our plans, was so accommodating and responded to our questions quickly! Doug was our driver for our tour and he was very sweet and informative! Some of us had not been to the area and he told us about some cool places to visit next time! Shelley was our boat captain and she was so much fun and quite patient with us too. Overall I would 100% recommend booking with Sip & Anchor and genuinely look forward to going to Kelowna again so I can book another tour with them. Thanks so much for making our friends trip extra special!
