A wonderful exhibition of years gone by and the opulence and splendour that passengers would have enjoyed on this sternwheeler. Massive cargo capacity and clearly, an important transporter of fresh produce along Kootenay Lake,

Hard to imagine this in its hey day. Must have been quite grand. Guess there were many more people living round the lake than nowadays. Worth a visit.

We have visited Kaslo and found this amazing historical ship. Spent about an hour exploring the ship and learning the history of it. Very well maintained. This is the definitely place to visit in Kaslo.

S.S.Moyie is the oldest intact passenger sternwheeler in the world...and has been lovingly restored and exhibited by Kootenay Lake Historical Society. Well worth the visit. Check their website for open hours.

This fully restored stern wheeler offers a self-guided tour of an important part of the local history. One can imagine the royal visit when the SS Moyie was partly renovated to add the royal suite. Well worth an hour or two.

This is a fabulous glimpse into the history of transportation. The stern-wheeler is in great shape and I really enjoyed taking a peek at how people used to get around in this remote area.
