This summer, getting out on the lake has never been so much fun! There's a pristine lake just a couple of hours from Vancouver where you can go bumper boating with your friends at your own peril. This is an exhilarating way to play in the water this summer and possibly jeopardize your friendships

Each bumper boat is equipped with an electric water gun with the ability to squirt your opponent from up to 10 feet away. It has a little motor so you can cruise around, scoping out your next victim. Whether you want to gently float around the lake or enter an all-out squirting and bumping battle royale, these bumper boats have to be on your summer bucket list. 

We strongly advise that before you go swimming or visit any location, you check the most recent updates on potential hazards, security, water quality, and closures. If you do plan to visit a location, respect the environment.

Find these bumper boats at the province's epic floating water park! You can make a whole day of it by cycling through all the different water adventures available here, but it might just be worth the trip up to ride in these bumper boats. There's something about soaking your friends and strangers, evading and ramming into people that sounds like so much fun. This is the perfect activity if you're, like me, an agent of chaos. 

You can rent these colourful bumper boats from Harrison Watersports. Each bumper boat rental is $23.81 for every half hour. Harrison is about a 2-hour drive from Vancouver so this makes for a great day-trip or even weekend-getaway from the city this summer.
