Welcome to one of the best kept secrets in the open water swimming community! The Interior Savings Rattlesnake Island Swim consists of two swimming events: a one-way, 3.1 km swim across Okanagan Lake, from Rattlesnake Island to Peachland, and a more demanding 7km out-and-back swim that loops around the back of Rattlesnake Island.

Although it has been going continuously for 20 years, this swim event has never been sponsored, advertised, or promoted, and numbers have grown very slowly in that time, relying mostly on word of mouth. Starting in 2014, the Rattlesnake Island swim was taken over by the Across The Lake Swim Society, which for many years has been running a highly successful and growing swim in Kelowna in mid July.

The ATLS Society plans to grow the participation in this event in the coming years, with enhanced safety features, improved swim support, more prizing, and an improved swag bag.
