As we find friends and family arriving on our doorstep with suitcases in hand ready to start their summer holidays, we’d better have some plans to keep everyone cool and active.

     The Thompson region is just the place to set down those beach towels with boating, fishing, swimming, paddle boarding, playing and just plain lounging.
     Bruker Marina & Beach Club, on Kamloops Lake at the Tobiano Resort offers much more than its name implies. They have been the complete Kamloops Lake water sport center since 2012.
     “Located only 20 minutes from Kamloops makes it a short trip to all your water sport fun,” says Kerry Wiebe, general manager of Bruker Marina. “With services ranging from the newly expanded 220 slip marina that will handle all sizes, makes, models and styles from sail boats to power boats from 10 feet to 40 feet. We accommodate all.”
     Owning a boat isn’t necessary, as Bruker offers double deck pontoon funships with slides, high end tournament surf boats and fishing boats.
     If you’re not sure of the area or where to best dip in your fishing line, Bruker offers fishing charters along with ski, wakeboard and surfing lessons. If you’re worried about driving a boat, but want family and friends to enjoy a day on the lake, you can hire a driver for the day. Drivers will even help coach the kids in skiing or tubing, says Wiebe.
     Paddle sport rentals are abundant including stand up paddle boards (SUP), kayaks, top riders, peddle boats, disc tubes and more. The beach club supplies Adirondack beach chairs, lounges, picnic tables, updated kids climbing and playground equipment, volleyball nets, super-size Jenga and Connect Four games. The floating candy store and Dockside Grille serves hamburgers, hotdogs and French fries right on the docks.
     Of course, there is the huge marina that accommodates all sizes of boats. “Water attenuators keep your boat resting calmly in its berth,” says Wiebe. Nightly, monthly or annual rates are available with annual moorage including year-round, 24 hr. access, parking pass, off-season storage, yacht club service, boat inspection, launch assistance and mooring assistance.
     The pro shop is fully stocked with rental fleet equipment providing a great opportunity to try before you buy, or to try something new without the cost of purchasing. Accessories such surf boards, wake boards, wake skate, air chairs, tubes and knee boards and more are available to rent or purchase.
    In keeping with the fun, Bruker has played host for many birthday parties, weddings, stag parties, anniversaries and family reunions.
     “The four-star service excellence awards attest to the fact that we strive for customer satisfaction.  We truly have something for everyone,” says Wiebe, making it the ideal beach and water spot for visitors and locals.
