About
Sailing cruises on Lake Champlain aboard two beautiful, wooden-rigged sloops: the Friend Ship and Wild Rose. Cruises are two hours and are BYO food and drink. Experienced crew members create a safe and entertaining sailing experience with their wealth of knowledge about the area and Lake Champlain history. Capacity is limited to 6-12 guests per ship which creates a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, not to mention picturesque views of the Adirondacks and Green Mountains. Sailing on Lake Champlain is the perfect way to reconnect with friends, family, and the outdoors. Sunset and daytime cruise options are available for public or private charters mid-May through mid-October. Bookings are accepted online and over the phone year-round. Friend Ship and Wild Rose are classic sailing sloops featuring bronze hardware, intricate rigging, and rich, highly detailed woodwork reminiscent of a time gone by. Lake Champlain is exceptional sailing territory for these historic ships.

We booked a private fireworks cruise on the Wild Rose, and it was the highlight of our Vermont vacation. The captain and first mate (I think those are the terms) were very friendly, the scenery was beautiful, and the view of the fireworks was amazing. I got so many great pictures. We packed sandwiches for dinner and enjoyed a nice casual meal at sea. I would highly recommend sailing with this company.

This seriously will be one of the highlights of my life as a traveller! The crew was charming, informative, and capable. They clearly enjoy their jobs, which added to the fun of the trip! Gorgeous fall weather! It was the last day of the season, and it was a perfect trip! We were on a 2 1/2 week tour of New England, and I've told everyone that this was the best part of the trip!

We were fortunate to be able to go on this sailing trip on the last day of the season. This was a small group experience with only 8 people. We were able to see the solar eclipse. The sailing was smooth. The crew was fantastic! Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

We took our family in the S/V Friendship the last weekend of the season in 2023. Captain Perry and Sofia gave us an amazing trip. They were very experienced and shared so much history of the area. We highly recommend this company for a great sail on Lake Champlain.

This company was amazing! We had the best time and will definitely sail again if we return to Burlington. It was smooth and we felt very safe. Our Captain was funny and so entertaining! Thanks Bubba and the whole crew for a great sail!

We really enjoyed our 2 hour sailing adventure on the Friendship with Capt Peri and boathand Sophia. They were very friendly and welcoming and made everyone feel safe and comfortable. They shared lots of stories about the. Boat and about Lake Champlain. They were patient with all of our questions. It was great to see Burlington from the water and all of the mountains beyond. It was a great way to spend an afternoon!

The owner and crew were great from the moment we arrived. We stood there as if we were lost, when we kinda were, and the owner operator explained everything and let us know what to expect next.
The crew on The Friend Ship were fantastic. Eddie and Corey were so friendly and knowledgeable and fun. They truly made the trip unforgettable. The other group of 4 were also very friendly and fun to be around.
All in all it was a fantastic experience from start to finish and I would highly recommend their charter when in Burlington!

We took our three kids (ages 6, 4 & 1) on a sunset cruise on the Wild Rose. We had to charter the whole thing because of our young kids but it was practically the same price since there are so many of us. Our Captian Peri and crew help Sophie were so amazing! They made it fun for our kids and answered all our many questions. They even had visuals from historic ships and monsters photographed on the lake. It was actually really cloudy so we didn't get a sunset but we didn't care with how much fun we had! I'd say eat before or after if you have kids. My husband and I had our hands full with a grumpy baby who hated her life jacket and excited kids who kept wanting to take in the view from the front of the boat (which is so stunning!). Definitely recommend the experience!!
