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.

The Moyie has been carefully restored as a "museum" that was an authentic period paddlewheel boat. It captures a brief time in history when paddlewheelers and trains connected in the New World. The artifacts aboard give a real sense of what life was like in...More

Self guided tour for $12, and highly recommended. The SS Moyie is an early 20th century paddle wheeler, beautiful restored to its CPR heyday. Give yourself at least an hour to really experience it all, and blow the whistle up top. Good historical display in...More
