Carillon Boat Cruises

Step on board the Carillon and immerse yourself in the wake of history along Lake

The Carillon is back for 2021 cruises!

A tour aboard Fort Ticonderoga’s Carillon cruise boat not only provides visitors with breathtaking lake views of commanding mountains and the majestic fort, it also crosses some of the most archaeologically rich waters in North America.

This attraction at Fort Ticonderoga, a major cultural destination, museum, and National Historic Landmark located in New York’s 6-million-acre Adirondack Park, offers passengers a unique travel experience. The 75-minute narrated tours feature Ticonderoga’s epic story of one of North America’s most strategic strongholds and places the iconic fort into a larger context as part of the imperial struggle for the continent in the 18th century.

“From shipwrecks to a massive bridge that the Americans built in 1776, Lake Champlain holds defining stories of America’s past,” said Beth Hill, Fort Ticonderoga president and CEO. “Fort Ticonderoga’s layers of history carry right from the land onto the water. The Carillon boat tours help ignite visitors’ imaginations as they explore this internationally strategic stretch of water and has quickly become one of the most popular attractions as part of the Fort Ticonderoga experience.”

Boat tours aboard the Carillon will run Tuesday-Sunday May 28-October 16; 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm; July 2-August 22, 10:30 am, 1:00 pm and 3:30 pm. Some black out days apply including all Mondays. The 60-foot boat is available for daily tours, field trips, sunset cruises, and charters. Tickets for the boat cruise are available online at or on site during a visit on a first-come basis. Boat tours are available rain or shine.
