Victoria (sternwheeler)
The Victoria sternwheeler was a passenger and freight steamer that was built for service on the Soda Creek to Quesnel route on the upper Fraser River in British Columbia. She was built at Quesnel by pioneer shipbuilder James Trahey of Victoria for Gustavus Blin-Wright and Captain Thomas Wright and was put into service in the spring of 1869 to augment the service of the Enterprise also built by Trahey for the Wrights. Although the Victoria's hull was new, her engines and boiler had originally been in the Prince of Wales from Lillooet Lake.
The Victoria was the second of twelve sternwheelers that would work on this section of the Fraser. She was larger than the Enterprise and more powerful. The two steamers worked together for only three years, when in 1871, the Enterprise was taken up to Takla Landing and abandoned on Trembleur Lake. The Victoria would work alone on the Soda Creek to Quesnel route for fifteen more years until 1886.

Victorian Princess returns to Presque Isle Bay | PresqueIsle.org
The Victorian Princess sails again. After 20 months of mechanical problems and a May fire that heavily damaged Erie's signature stern-wheeler, the paddle boat pushed off from Dobbins Landing on Thursday at about 11:45 a.m. Owner Dan O'Neill and his crew took the vessel for a 45-minute tour of Presque Isle Bay before returning to Dobbins Landing. O'Neill says there were no problems on the test run. The boat will undergo U.S. Coast Guard inspections this weekend. O'Neill expects his first charter to take place Tuesday.
