The City of Vergennes provides municipal docks for boaters in the Otter Creek Basin, which is navigable by nearly all types of watercraft and only 7 miles of sailing from Lake Champlain. Visitors can dock their boats, enjoy a beautiful view of the waterfalls, and walk into Downtown Vergennes to stroll, shop, dine or swim in our public pool. On summer nights, the Falls put on a dazzling show when they're bathed in colorful spotlights for viewers to appreciate.
You'll find a boat launch, docks on both sides of the river with power and water available on a first-come, first-served basis (a nominal donation is expected.) There is free WiFi and a 48-hour maximum stay. If you need to visit a marina while you're here, check out Tom's Marine or Marine Plus VT.
