The SS Moyie is truly one of a kind. The oldest intact passenger sternwheeler ship in the world built in 1898, the Moyie ended its service on Kootenay Lake in 1959. Unlike most sternwheelers that plied inland waters in BC and the Yukon that were either scrapped or burnt at the end of their working lives, the SS Moyie has survived and thrived in Kaslo – lovingly preserved by the community and...
