ROV Shipwreck Tours

Explore a shipwreck … without getting wet! There are hundreds of historic shipwrecks in Lake Champlain. Each season, we offer monthly tours to go explore one of these underwater treasures. Join us as we take a tour boat to the site of one of these wrecks and go for a “dive” using an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV). Our 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!
