Did you know that there are over 300 historic shipwrecks at the bottom of Lake Champlain? Take a tour boat to the site of one of these wooden wrecks and go for a “dive” using a Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). This robotic camera sends back real-time video to an on-board monitor as we share the vessel’s dramatic story. Don’t miss this incredible experience – for all ages!
Welcome aboard! On this one-hour Shipwreck Tour, we’ll visit the wreck of the steamboat Champlain II at the bottom of Lake Champlain. Following our dive we will tour the shoreline of Lake Champlain often spotting bald eagles on their nest or fishing in the Lake.
Pricing (includes admission to LCMM): $40 ($35 LCMM Members) for adults, $25 ($20 LCMM Members) for children under twelve.
No charge for children under 4 and leashed pets. Although there is no charge for kids under 4, they must have a ticket.

A restroom is available on the tour boat and she is accessible to most guests with mobility limitations. Please inquire for larger powered chairs.
