Logo   Lake Champlain Ferry-Burlington VT
A fun thing to do in Burlington VT is to enjoy a ferry cruise over to Port Kent NY whether you're actually interested in visiting Port Kent or not.




Ferries, leaving from the King Street Dock in Burlington (map), operate from late May through mid-October, leaving each terminus at about 1-hour intervals from 8 or 9:15 am to 7:30 or 8:30 pm, a bit more frequently in summer, with 11 to 13 trips a day in each direction.

The Burlington—Port Kent ferry doesn't run in winter, but ferries between Charlotte VT and Essex NY operate from mid-April through January 2, and those between Grand Isle VT and Plattsburgh NY operate year round, 24 hours a day.
