  • Great little tour! Loved the original decor. The large train set was excellent. The views from the top deck are amazing! The stairways are very steep from one level to next so please keep a close eye ...  more »

  • Great historic learning of how boats like this were used to move good up and down the Okanagan Lake and how important the Kettle Valley Railway was too the economy of the Okanagan Valley.
  • This is a great spot. The old river boat and the model train is fun and interesting.
  • Daughter and son in law had their wedding reception their recently and could not have chosen a better location. The staff were great and being a parent I was reassured that their were staff and security on hand all evening. So happy to also contribute to the up keep of the ship. Thanks to all and do not believe there is a better wedding location that is so rich in history and so elegant in the whole of the Okanagan. We used the crockery available from the boat and added flowers in small antique vases we later donated to the boat so not a lot of effort to create a great vintage effect.
  • Excellent venue for various activities. Love love love the model train, sad we cant blow the whistle anymore.
  • Excellent for ship history lovers. Could be managed better if they stopped reservation for weddings. Tourists come from distant places sometimes to find this place locked for a wedding. Suggest checking their calendar online in detail before planning anything on a weekend.
