“Authentic Kootenay Lake History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The Moyie was accurately restored, and was filled with a broad array of articles of the time, from typical cargo, to fitted out staterooms complete with clothing, toiletries and the like.The video setting out the history of the Moyie is worth seeing!

“Yearly round trip to take in the sights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

History is shown in a special way on the Moyie and takes you back to a different time, always a special day to visit Kaslo, the Moyie and have a bavarian smokie.

Very well preserved piece of local history, very much worth a visit. A deep history in the old mining town of Kaslo.

“No small boat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Until you actually see one up close, it is hard to imagine the size and capacity of these historic sternwheelers and the work they did.
