Lake Champlain, which borders Vermont and Northern New York State, covers 435 square miles and features many shipwrecks varying in age and type. These wrecks provide divers with the opportunity to explore history and marine life at the same time.
The lake is the sixth largest in the United States, and is home to more than 80 different freshwater aquatic species. A popular wreck site in Lake Champlain amongst advanced divers on the Vermont side is the wreck of the Phoenix. At 110 feet, this old barge holds a long history of maritime activity.
Other popular wrecks sites amongst the locals include the OJ Walker and The General Butler, an 88 foot sailing canal boat.
Divers are recommended to wear a 5/7mm wetsuit in the summer months and some opt for a drysuit in the cooler months.
Burlington International Airport is the main airport service in Vermont.
