Lake Champlain Shoreline Cruises aboard the Spirit of Ethan Allen

Lake Champlain’s Largest Cruise Ship and Floating Restaurant

Welcome aboard Burlington’s luxury cruise ship, the Spirit of Ethan Allen.

Our triple deck ship offers scenic, lunch, brunch, and nightly themed dinner cruises available 7 days a week. Our Scenic Narrated Cruise will fascinate travelers with our Captain’s tales of history, geology and wildlife. Bring your camera just in case you see Champ, our lake’s elusive monster.

Our Executive Chef prepares fresh entrées, buffets and snack bar items from our on-board galley. Enjoy our Lunch on the Lake Cruise featuring a delicious buffet while listening to the exciting narration.

Coming soon! Our 2018 lineup for our themed dinner cruises will be decided in Fall 2017. Excitement awaits as our team dreams up some brand new cruises on the ship! Join us for our spring and fall cruises with live entertainment, our Springtime Dinner and our Harvest Moon Dinner! Both with delicious buffets to match the beautiful Vermont seasons. Dining decks are enclosed, heated and air conditioned.
