The Ferry Dock Marina is located on Lake Champlain in Downtown Burlington, Vermont. A recent expansion has brought the marina to 250 slips accommodating up to 70' vessels.
Conveniently located on the Burlington Waterfront, the marina is a short walk away from numerous shopping, dining and nightlife options. It also has an onsite restaurant, the Spot on the Dock that serves up great food and tropical cocktails with an unbeatable sunset view.
Our full-service fuel dock includes non-ethanol gas, diesel, free pump-outs, ice, and a brand new ship store featuring food, beverages and merchandise. Fuel dock hours are 8am-8pm, Monday-Sunday during our season, which runs from mid-May through mid-October.
Haley, Max, and the entire crew were awesome as usual. They always go above and beyond to ensure we have a safe and enjoyable stay.
Awesome marina! Still developing and improving. I credible waterside restaurant and bar. I go there at least once a year and stay for several days each time even though it takes me two hours on plane to get there! Within walking didtance to all the Burlington restaurants and activities. Conveniently has its own gas dock, too.
Recently spent two nights here as a pate summer getaway. The staff was excellent; they make it a point to assist everyone both on and off the dock. The docks themselves are newer and loaded with plenty of cleats for any size boat. The bathroom/shower/laundry facilities were spotless, and the store/office was well stocked and clean. The sunset views over NY are awesome, as is the location at the foot of the Main Street up to church street marketplace and all that Burlington has to offer. One word of advice if I may; we were assigned to A-dock facing south (odd #’s) and there was a raging south wind all night. Burlington bay is protected from the west by a stone breakwater but the die-south facing portions of the basin are quiet exposed to a long fetch and it got quite rough. The staff was more than willing to let us move the next morning but the winds died down and it was a great night. But if you are there with a south wind in the forecast I’d advise to request something in the north side of the basin. All in all I can’t wait to go back!
Very accommodating. Can’t go wrong with these guys, so helpful. Very clean facilities.
Great crew, great facilities, close to downtown Burlington.
Kyle runs probably the highest level of service we have ever had at a marina. Hailey and Grant were excellent as well. The docks and facilities are new and first class. The restroom/showers are second to none in our 25 years of cruising! Good job team!
thanks so much grate stay dock staff 5 star great bunch
We stayed there for a few days and enjoyed the marina very much. Dock hands were friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Kyle who is the manager and attentive to boaters needs. Docks are pristine and power is the best we have experienced. WiFi is very fast. Best on the lake. Centrally located to Burlington.
Great management!! Dock hands are very helpful!!!
Customer service is unmatched!! Perfect spot to watch the fireworks!!
The new marina is very nice and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Great dock hands, clean, great location, so many restaurants nearby.
Ferry Dock Marina is the absolute place to be in the summer! Incredible facilities and an EXCELLENT crew that are always ready to help make this the place to be! The atmosphere can't be beat and we can't wait for another summer "at the dock"!! Randy Charlebois
Beautiful marina with a wonderful staff that is detail oriented and always there when you need them! Can’t wait for summer!
The dock staff is honestly the best we have ever worked with. Not only were they prompt and attentive, they were prepared for us ahead of time. They actually were waiting for us on the docks upon arrival! The Burlington Ferry Dock Marina never disappoints. We have made sure to make this amazing establishment a permanent part of our Summer plans with both our J29 and now our Grand Banks 32. We would very much enjoy a slip with a view the next time we visit in Summer 2021. While we understand the reasoning behind the transient dockage, it would be nice to have a dock designated for these transient boats to have a view of Lake Champlain, rather than hiding in the corner of the marina. We need to let all see how beautiful Burlington Lake Champlain is! Well Done! Pat & Josh Teague
Had a great time, beautiful setting, and the staff was very accommodating. Would highly recommend this marina to anyone.
Fantastic facilities, incredible competent, friendly staff, great adjoining bar and restaurant. Easy walk to all of Downtown Burlington’s great attractions. Fun place to just hang out!
With the new docks, easy in , easy out. Great location. Dock hands were excellent.
Super Great Marina! We weren't sure we'd like a slip downtown, but Ferry Dock Marina changed that! We love the location, the new docks, the amentities, the bar/restaurant, and the Staff...the Staff is super helpful and super friendly. We spent most of the summer there this year. Thanks Ferry Dock Marina! Neil Schell
Unbelievable staff! Always a smile with attentive service. Would recommend this marina to anyone looking for permanent or transient dockage. Easy, walkable access to Burlington.
Perfect location/lake views and state of the art facility including convenient parking and knowledgeable staff only add to a wonderful boating experience...Mike O'Brien
We love keeping our boat at the Ferry Dock Marina. Service is professional and personable, and the facilities and setting, just beautiful. Having a slip here has become a cherished part of our spring and summer routine in Burlington. Whether we're on our boat for a sunset picnic, or heading out to explore the lake, the Marina is a welcoming community. Here's to the next boating season.
This was our best summer on Lake Champlain. We have had a boat for the past 35 years and a combination of the new Ferry Dock Marina and great weather made this a season to remember. The friendly and helpful marina helpers getting us off the dock and helping us dock our boat made some challenging returns very comfortable. I believe the Ferry Dock Marina is the best marina on the lake and with the proximity to Church Street in Burlington makes it all the better. Cheers. David Holton
Great marina!!! Amazing amenities, staff and services...perfect location near restaurants and bars!!!
This was our first year as seasonal members at Ferry Dock Marina. I cannot say enough good things about this marina. The service is beyond what we ever expected. It is professionally run by the greatest staff! The views and sunsets are amazing. We cannot wait for next season! 5 stars for sure!!!
Great staff and wonderful location. Go here every time we boat into Burlington
Beautiful docks. Great Location. Dock hands are the best. Great Customer Service. Highly recommend.
Awesome crew. Super friendly and helpful!
By far the best located marina in Burlington. Love this place!
I would give them 10 stars if I could! We spent our first summer docked at FDM this year. We were absolutely delighted with the facilities but more importantly, the staff! They are wonderful!
Great location when headed to B-town by water. Staff is super friendly, always willing to help and facilities are fantastic!
Modern and extremely clean. Shower and bathroom facilities are excellent. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. Fantastic location just a few blocks from tons of restaurants and stores. Aquamarine 2020
We have had our boat at Ferry Dock Marina for five seasons now. We have watched them invest in and make more and more, much appreciated, improvements to the Marina year after year. The location is perfect but the best part of This Marina is the staff, their positive attitudes, willingness to help and how much they care for our boats and the all of us is unmatched.
Always the most polite and courteous group ! Always watching out and helping to protect our summer home . We always feel welcome and safe. Thanks and see you all in the spring 😎 . JW
We had stayed at the Ferry Dock Marina a number of times and liked it so much that we were seasonal members this past summer. What an amazing marina! The service is excellent. The dock hands really know what they are doing and are very helpful. The Clubhouse is the best we have seen, including beautiful bathrooms with excellent locally sourced amenities and FREE laundry! Unbelievable. But what really make FDM stand out is the community. It is a wonderful group of dedicated boaters who all love Lake Champlain. People are on the docks all the time, getting to know each other and creating a very welcoming group. And the location can't be beat. The sunsets are beautiful and there is an excellent restaurant right on the dock, or many others within walking distance. We cannot recommend FDM more enthusiastically! Thanks!
I can not say enough about the team at Ferry Dock Marina. The staff is super professional and conscientious. They have a good crew that seems to be enjoying working there as much as their clients like being on their boat. They're continually re-investing in the facility making it better and better each year. Recent ugrades include new docks, a nicer bathroom / shower facility and improved parking. Best of all, they create a real sense of community amongst the folks who have their boat there. My boat neighbors are great and they all enjoy having their boat at Ferry Dock Marina! I highly recommend Ferry Dock Marina!
We are Burlington locals, so we are lucky to have our boat here all spring and summer. We love the community at this marina; the staff are always happy and responsive to our individual needs as well as sharing insight about lake conditions, etc., and our neighbors are kind, helping with lines, sharing cocktails, describing their days on the water. We are "almost" as happy sitting and viewing the high peaks from our slip with this community as we are out on the lake!
The team at Ferry Dock Marina is outstanding! They're bright, generous, and non-judgmental! We're just a lil 18 footer...on the wall, but they are eager to roll out the red carpet for us any time we need anything. It's a relief to know our boat is in great hands, and we're covered if we should need help at any time, or any hour of the day. THANK YOU, guys! You are appreciated! Sarah & Adam W15
We’ve been to many of the marinas in Charlotte and Shelburne. After being out of the water for 4 years, joining this marina has by far been our favorite. The dock hands truly make the experience better. Friendly, helpful and professional, they are always there with a hand when needed! Working with Hayley is amazing. She returns emails promptly and professionally and I love chatting with her on the docks. The cleanliness of the club house, the amazing flowers on the docks - not to mention our favorite blue ADK chairs - help make this marina special. Of course, being downtown doesn’t hurt either! We had the most amazing summer and can’t wait for May 2021! Cheers to the staff and owners that went out of their way to make this a great summer for all of us!
We have been staying at the ferry dock marina for over seven years now! There isn’t any other marina that I would want to be at! All the employees have wonderful smiles and are so helpful they are right there when you need them. The marina has the convenience of being near several restaurants and is walking distance to downtown Burlington. There’s only five stars here but I would give them 10!
Friendly people and great facilities
The folks at Ferry Dock were incredibly helpful. I mistakenly booked for a day early, let them know AFTER, and they transferred me over. My wife and I are newbies, with a little sailboat, and they moved us to the most protected slip, gave us extra fenders, and helped us out a bunch.
Staff is excellent! Bathrooms are super clean. Food and drink options within walking distance everywhere even during COVID. I would recommend this Marina to anyone enjoying VT and Lake Champlain.
Very clean and nice WC
Wonderful stay as always. new marina facilities are immaculate and tastefully decorated and much appreciated by us and our boating friends. May of us do feel however the marina staff do need more training receiving boats at the docks, and to not remove mid cleat lines during docking from a moving boat, or clearing off a boat u til the captain is certain the boat is actually in the slip to prevent from hitting the post or adjacent boats in the shared slip. They are most friendly and accommodating but need to learn the ropes of boating a little more.
Great facility. Staff members were courteous and well informed. It is unfortunate that weekend guests were not respectful of the beautiful new facility. We really appreciated the cleanliness and well appointed showers and laundry. Thank you
Nice location but they haven't put edging on the docks yet. I hope they plan on adding it in the future. Staff was great.
Good service excellent
Excellent service, clubhouse with extra clean brand new showers, near everything. Will come again!
Totally outstanding Marina. Every aspect of what a person could ask for of a marina is captured by Kyle and his Crew of young, energetic and competent marine professionals. Their positive, Can Do Attitude is what makes this place such a fine value. Also, the docks are new, the laundry new and the showers and head facilities all brand new. There is a great restaurant on site and you are within walking distance of Burlington’s downtown and famous Market Street. If I ever pass thru again, you can bet I’ll be mooring my boat here.
The staff at the Marina were kind and all around excellent. The restaurant was fun and great food. The facilities were exceptionally clean. We put our name on the waiting list for a seasonal slip and hope to get one next summer. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
We had a fantastic stay at the Ferry Dock Marina!!! The docks are awesome, the bathrooms are fantastic, we highly recommend staying here!
Very accommodating and the dock Hands were extremely helpful and courteous
Very professional dock staff. Very much enjoyed meeting them. They were always friendly and offered assistance if needed. Docks very clean. Fantastic brand new bathrooms/showers and laundry facility. Spot on the Dock is right there for lunch/dinner and easy walking up to town for groceries or activities or meals. Also a free bus shuttle will take you up to town right near by. Great location. Highly recommended.
Beautiful week end the staff and the place are both incredible. The restroom/shower area are family friendly and very useful with young children....
Beautiful Marina, a gorgeous Harbor / Bath house, with Laundry room, Free of charge. They even provide detergent and dryer sheets. All employees are friendly & professional.
Finally they added showers and laundry facilities. We had to use the restaurant's toilets in years past, however; the marina now has the finest facilities I have had the pleasure of using in my ten years of traveling the east coast.
Great new facilities and helpful dock hands. Prime location for Burlington waterfront access.
Great new Marina, bathrooms and showers are beautiful. The restaurant has great food and decent drinks. The views are some of the best on Lake Champlain.
Fantastic new docks! Awesome deck hands. The crew was so helpful and informative. The docks are nice and wide. Will definitely be staying there again.
