Capilano was built in 1920 at the BC Marine Ways for the Union Steamship Company. The triple expansion steam engine for the Capilano came from the Puget Sound steamer Washington, and was rated at 750 horsepower (560 kW). Union Steamship had acquired the assets of the All Day Line, which included a steamboat route from Vancouver to Selma Park, British Columbia. (Selma Park is now a neighorhood of Sechelt, BC.) Capilano was built for this route.
Capilano was built of wood, and was 135 feet (41 m) long with a beam of 20 feet (6.1 m) and 8-foot (2.4 m) depth of hold. The ship had a speed of 14.5 knots (27 km/h).
Capilano operated on a route running along the Sunshine Coast of mainland British Columbia.
Capilano was withdrawn from service in 1949.
