About the S.S. Sicamous Society

The S.S. Sicamous Marine Heritage Society works to protect, preserve and promote the marine heritage of the Okanagan Valley. Our Society was founded to preserve the Sternwheeler S.S. Sicamous, and prevent it from slated closure. Later the society began acquiring other vessels and structures that were in danger of disappearing. Today the Society works to preserve and communicate this unique chapter in Okanagan and Canadian History.

Protecting Heritage

There were once sternwheelers and tugs all over the lakes and rivers of BC. This part of our history has mostly vanished, as the fleets were torn apart for scrap, or lost to fire. Through the work of our volunteers, and the support of our community, these physical reminders of the past can be preserved for the future. We are working to communicate their importance with the public, and raise awareness about this aspect of Canadian history. Here are the structures that are under the care of our volunteers:
