COVID-19 has impacted the tourism industry significantly.
Ogopogo Tours has made the difficult decision that we will not provide tours or transportation services until BC's Restart plan has reached Phase 4.
This is for a number of reasons:
1. We will not be able to offer the kind of service that we set out to provide.
2. To protect our guests and staff. Note: Ogopogo Tours primary operator is high risk and lives with a family member who is also high risk.
3. To reduce the spread of COVID-19.

In light of the new normal, we are reducing our fleet size. Our fleet is proactively maintained and detailed after each use.

Please contact us if you have any questions or are interested in our vehicles.
