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.

We were in the area and decided to stop in to see the SS Moyie. At first I was not sure the cost would be worth it, but in the end this was fun for everyone. The tour is self guided and children can participate...More
