The development of the maritime tours was funded in part by an agreement awarded by the Great Lakes Fishery Commission to the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission in partnership with the Lake Champlain Basin Program. NEIWPCC manages LCBP’s personnel, contract, grant, and budget tasks and provides input on the program’s activities through a partnership with the LCBP Steering Committee.

Maritime programming was also supported by the South Lake Champlain Fund, International Paper Foundation, and International Paper Ticonderoga Mill.
