Glenn Gallie

This is Glenn, your friendly boat rental guy in Vernon, BC


Meet Glenn Gallie.  He is the proud owner of Vernon Watersports.  I am his wife, (and partner in all adventures) Lisa.

I am going to tell you a few things about this guy, so that you know exactly who you are renting your boat from in Vernon, BC.

First and foremost, Glenn takes his job as a Dad, the most serious.  These are our kids, Myah and Jordyn, enjoying their Dad’s enthusiasim for all things water-skiing!  Both of them have literally grown-up in tournament boats!  (see pics below) Glenn has over 25 years of experience on the water, including coaching kids in water-ski schools, and also holding the National Barefoot Water Ski title in 2000 and 2001.   Of course, I ended up becoming a boat-driver comparable with Michael Andreotti…because every good “footer” needs an amazing driver. He won’t admit this, but he was quite the accomplished water-skiier a long time ago as well, even training in Florida!  He has started training in Slalom skiing again and enjoying every second of that.


Fast forward a bit…After kids and a serious back injury that required surgery in 2010, Glenn now focuses on providing a PERFECT boat rental for his clients.  He is a lover of all things water-skiing, so he knows what’s important to his clients.

He can be found on the boat launch at pretty much any time of day from July 1 – Sept 15th.  He is the guy standing back, watching all the “domestic’s” and ramp-rage, with a big smile on his face….cool as a cucumber.

We are so proud of Glenn’s ever-giving attitude and we are looking forward to the adventures that the 2015 season will bring us.

Yup, that’s me, single-handing a barefoot set for Glenn when Jordyn was only 10 days old.  Myah with her new baby-sister asleep in the foot-well below the steering wheel…these kids come by it honestly!!  They are much older now, and at 13, this year Myah will start helping out, not just with detailing boats as she did last year, but with launching and learning to back a boat into the water!

You have chosen a truly family-run business with Vernon Watersports, we thank you!


We also own a beach shop in Vernon that has grown to be the largest independent swimwear seller in the entire Okanagan!!  Big Sun Beachwear and Tanning is our passion when the boats are not renting, and it keeps us really busy as well!  WARNING: Your paid reservation entitles you and your family to a VIP DISCOUNT CARD at BIG SUN!  Definitely ask Glenn about where you can get one…just add a few more points under your name on the scorecard!!!
