Come aboard the 60' luxury vessel ''Carillon.'' Explore the historic waters of South Lake Champlain. Named after Samuel de Champlain, the Lake will celebrate its 400th anniversary of his discovery in 2009. Let your imagination take you along with Ethan Allen and the Green Mt. Boys as they travel from Hand's Cove in Shoreham, Vermont to Willow Bay on the New York shore. Learn of Nathan Beeman, the young lad who leads the men into Fort Ticonderoga, the first American victory in the fight for our Independence. Sail past Mt. Independence? possibly our least disturbed revolutionary site.
Enjoy the abundant wildlife. Bald eagles, osprey, blue heron and the occasional deer are seen along the shores.
Also view the underwater archeology on the side-imaging sonar aboard the Carillon. View ship wrecks from the 18th through 20th centuries.
Carillon sails Thursday Friday Saturday, and Sunday at 1:00 pm during July, August, and Foliage season from Larrabee's Point in Shoreham, Vermont, adjacent to the Ticonderoga Ferry on Route 74W.
The Carillon is also available for custom tours (capacity is 49 passengers), fund raisers, and private charters. Want to be married, Captain Paul can do that aboard the Carillon. Company parties, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. are all welcome aboard the Carillon.
