Carillon Boat Cruises
Includes General Admission
A tour aboard Fort Ticonderoga’s Carillon cruise boat not only provides visitors with breathtaking lake views of commanding mountains and the majestic fort, but it also crosses some of the most archaeologically rich waters in North America. This tour offers passengers a unique 75-minute travel experience that features an onboard narrator who explores 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.
