Lake Champlain, located at the footsteps of downtown Burlington, is the fifth largest freshwater lake in the United States, smaller than just the Great Lakes. The lake spans 120 miles in length, covering the states of Vermont, New York and the Canadian province of Quebec. One of the best ways to experience the majestic lake is aboard a Lake Champlain harbor cruise or a Lake Champlain dinner cruise.
We believe the best way to take in the stunning beauty and interesting history is aboard the Ethan Allen III, a modern 424-passenger ship. A wide variety of sail options are available, from daily narrated scenic cruises, sunset tours, brunch cruises and even themed dinner events. Join us as we slip away aboard the clear and magical waters of Lake Champlain for a breathtaking sail you won’t soon forget.
