The SS Sicamous is the largest surviving stern wheeler in BC. The ship is open as a museum and wedding venue, and is a must-see attraction when visiting the Okanagan.

Where to Find the Museum

The SS Sicamous is on the beach in Penticton, BC. We pride ourselves on being easy to find!  Just look for the big white paddle wheeler on the shore of Okanagan Lake.

The address for the ship is 1099 Lakeshore Drive West, Penticton, British Columbia (Canada).

There is ample free parking along the whole of Lakeshore drive, and across the road in the LocoLanding Adventure Park car park.
