We got married at the SS sicamous in April and it was perfect! The extremely helpful staff made my wedding dream a reality without going over budget. Our guests love the unique venue and were able to enjoy the meseum. Our guests still tell us how great a venue it was, months later! It's located close to hotels and many great photo locations for the wedding party. We had a lot of creative wedding photos within the ship too. I'd recommend the venue to anyone!!

Brillant - we were there for a museum conference and had an opening reception there. The crew aboard the ship were knowledgeable and the fellows running the trains took plenty of time to explain all the working of the layout. I loved walking on the decks of this wonderful old treasure. A must see!

We had a great time on the sicamous! We loved the model railway and the effort they put in to recreating the rooms! Would love to get married here :-) we'll be back!

Having grown up in Vancouver, in the "education" system of the 1950's, I knew nothing of the inland waterways of BC, nor of the steam powered sternwheelers that powered up and down Okanagan Lake and Kootenay lake. The SS Sicamous and the Society that maintains her have done a wonderful job to bring the lady of the lake to life. Long live SS Sicamous!
