Join us for a free online program on the history of our 98 year old historic landmark vessel!
The S.S. VIRGINIA V is the last operational example of a Puget Sound Mosquito Fleet steamer. Her maiden voyage was on June 11, 1922. Her all-wood construction and steam engine make her a National Historic Landmark vessel.
The ship served as a passenger and freight ferry serving the route between Seattle and Tacoma along the “West Pass” (aka Colvos Passage) between Vashon Island and the Kitsap Peninsula between 1922-1938. She brought thousands of Camp Fire Girls to Camp Sealth and for much of the century she’s been a passenger excursion vessel. Ed Brown is our resident expert on the ship’s history. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about the ship and the Mosquito Fleet!
