Skaha Lake, sandwiched between Penticton and Okanagan Falls, is a beautiful, deep lake known best for its recreation opportunities.  While fishing on Skaha is popular, jetskis, wakeboarding boats, and party barges rule the lake in the summer months.  Anglers looking to put a boat on the lake will do best from Penticton Marina (aka Yamaha Marina) at the northeast extremity of the lake.  There are also adequate launches for power boats in Kaledan (midway down the west side of the lake), and at the very south end in Okanagan Falls.
