The SS Sicamous is the largest surviving paddle wheeler in Canada. It is open as a heritage site, museum and wedding venue. Launched in 1914, the ship provided a vital means of transport to remote communities on the shores of Okanagan Lake. The SS Sicamous is operated by the SS Sicamous Society: a non-profit organization that works to protect the marine heritage of the Okanagan.Funds from your admission go directly to the restoration of the SS Sicamous, and the other heritage ships in our care.

Beautiful ship on the shore of Okanagan Lake at the north end of Penticton being restored by volunteers is open to the general public most weekends during the winter and offers ambience for special functions. Full of history and admission is very reasonable

Very interesting! Highly recommend if you are interested in Penticton's history and enjoy exploring technology from the past. The attention to detail is impressive and is on par with the finishes in all ventures by the Canadian Pacific Company.

Hi J! Thanks for asking, visitor times change a little, so the best option is to check the opening times on the Sicamous website (go to the main ss Sicamous site and click the "visit us" tab at the top). Hope this helps! :)
