About Kickin' Back Boat Rentals

Hassle-free boat rentals since 2016

Meet the Team

We're the Prystupa Family - Nice to meet you!

The Okanagan has been our favourite vacation spot for just about as long as we can remember. Whether we were packing up backpacks, sandals and flip phones or diaper bags , baby bottles and playpens, we couldn't wait to get into the sunny valley and - more importantly - onto the water.

Our beloved Okanagan adventures inspired us to start our adventure with Kickin' Back Boat Rentals in 2019. Having run several small businesses and owned a few boats over the years, this opportunity was the perfect fit.

Now we get to share our love of boating in the beautiful Okanagan Valley with tourists and locals like you every summer.

If you're ready to make your new favourite summer memory, get in touch - we can't wait to help you have the adventure of a lifetime.
