Planning to float the Penticton River Channel this weekend? Please follow these safety guidelines:

  1. Be aware of your surroundings, snags under water, shoreline branches etc.
  2. Wear a Lifejacket if you are not a swimmer or in fast moving water, like the Penticton Channel.
  3. Do not tie floaties together in Penticton Channel, it’s dangerous.
  4. Avoid alcohol while participating in water activities.
  5. Call 911 if you are experiencing or witness a water emergency.
