The Eldorado Resort's marina on Okanagan Lake will soon be used for both marine and air travel.

From July 23 to Sept. 6, Harbour Air will take off with weekly round trip flights from downtown Vancouver to a private dock at the hotel's marina in Kelowna, according to a media release.

“Getting people directly to the heart of where they want to be on the coast is what we are known for,” Harbour Air CEO Greg McDougall said in the release. “Now, with working with the beautiful Eldorado Resort, we finally have an opportunity to offer that same service into a beautiful property on Okanagan Lake and we couldn’t be more excited.”

The new round-trip flights include new offerings of a package deal to stay at the Eldorado Hotel.

Eldorado Hotel general manager Mark Jeanes said in the release Harbour Air flights give tourists from the Lower Mainland a seamless option to explore the Okanagan.

Flights between the cities are expected to be an hour each way.
