Other Venue Details:
The CPR vessel, SS Princess Sophia, which sailed from Victoria/Vancouver to Alaska
during World War I, came to a tragic end, with the loss of all life, on Vanderbilt Reef in October, 1918.
This was the largest maritime disaster on the Pacific Northwest Coast, but the story is nearly unknown.
Why is that so? What happened? Learn about the ship and its history, the passengers, and the
aftermath of the sinking. The mobile exhibit, loaned by the Maritime Museum of B.C., explores the whole story
and asks "Could such a disaster happen again?"
Open hours daily, except Thursdays 11 am to 4 pm, March to April 14. Admission is by donation.
