About Us

Meet The Team

We are the Prystupa family who love everything boats, travel, scenic views, and most importantly spending time with family and friends. We have vacationed here in the beautiful Okanagan year after year with our two children. Even before they were born, we were heading out south in the old Ford with our back pack, sandals, and flip phone (Wow, that really aged us!) Then came the baby bottles, play pens, and diaper bags. We took on many new adventures here and built some amazing memories over the years. We loved everything about the Okanagan from hours of boating with friends, exploring the trails, and tasting as many wineries as we can get in!

In 2019 a new baby was brought into our lives, “Kickin’ Back Boat Rentals”. With years of owning several small business, along with various ownership of boats, we took on this amazing new opportunity. We truly understand the importance of experiencing the best time in the Okanagan. Whether you’re an out-of-town visitor or from the local community, we strive to offer you an amazing time on the water that will develop into memories which will last a lifetime!

We work together as a team to provide our guests with top notch boats, professional customer service, and a remarkable travel experience that exceeds our customer’s expectations. We are committed to providing the best boat rental experience, so you too can create those amazing memories at one of the most beautiful locations in British Columbia.
