The Benefits of A Wedding and Reception at the SS Sicamous

  • The SS Sicamous is offered for the entire day (for the ceremony and reception)
  • All wedding options include an experienced Event Coordinator for the entire day of the Wedding.
  • This is a truly unique venue (the largest Stern Wheeler in Canada!) with awesome photo opportunities at every turn.
  • We have a list of recommended vendors, so you are free to choose the caterer of your choice (this can be a hidden cost at other venues).
  • Because the ceremony and reception are held at the same location, there is no need to organize logistics or transport for guests.
  • Bar Service is entirely at your discretion (your choice of wine and beverages, with no corkage fee! )
  • A selection of hotels and motels are within easy walking distance from the venue.
  • Guests are not confined to the Reception, and are free to roam through this popular tourist attraction.
  • Vineyards are a short drive away for wedding photos, and the Rose Garden and beach are just outside.
  • The interior is stunning already, so few decorations are needed. (This helps the budget, and allows you to focus on other aspects).
  • Funds from your Wedding go directly to a local charity (the S.S Sicamous Society) to protect Okanagan heritage.

If you have questions, just ask. We are here to help!
