Are you looking for monster-sized fun? Then you should check out the mythical lake creature of Kelowna, the legendary Ogopogo! Since the 1850s, locals have been telling tales of a mysterious sea serpent living in Okanagan Lake.
First spotted in 1926 by a local woman (who we can only assume was also carrying a flashlight and some Scooby snacks!), Ogopogo is said to look like an eel or whale with four flippers and a long neck that sometimes pokes above the water’s surface. And don’t even get us started on its furry scales!
In recent years, sightings have become rarer, so if you’re interested in catching a glimpse of this mythical creature, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled during those quiet moments from dusk until dawn. Plus, boat tours have began organizing specific Ogopogo-searching expeditions around Okanagan Lake—so why not make it a day trip adventure?
So whether you’re into cryptozoology (the study of unknown creatures) or just enjoy collect memorabilia like postcards, t-shirts and songs dedicated to this mythical aquatic beastie—you’ll find something truly unique about searching for Ogopogo in Kelowna’s Okanagan Lake!
