Heading To NY? Take A Ferry

Save time, while taking in the beauty of Lake Champlain, The Lake Champlain Ferries and Ticonderoga Ferry provide several connections to New York destinations like Plattsburgh, Port Ken, Essex & Ticonderoga.

Taking The Ferry Is Easy And Inexpensive:

  • There are four ferry crossings to get you to your destination (saving you a farther drive to cross by bridge).
  • Fares are less than half the cost when you cross on foot and get a ride on the other side.

Tips For Traveling By Ferry:

  • Some ferries don’t operate in the winter or on holidays so make sure to check your travel dates against ferry schedules.
  • Fares can vary based on whether you travel alone or with other passengers, and whether you travel by car, bike or on foot. Contact the ferry provider for details on discounts and advance purchase tickets.
  • Look up ferry details like how long it takes to cross, as well as the board and departure locations.

If you haven’t used the ferry before, call the service provider or go online to get more information. Once there, just sit back and enjoy the beautiful views of Lake Champlain!
