Cape Vincent, New York
We had a great sail from Sackets Harbor to Cape Vincent, up wind most of the way, and arrived within 4 hours. There are a few free dockets that you can stay out. The village dock has space for about 4-5 boats, but draft near the shore is shallow for keel boats, and half way down the dock the draft is about 6 feet. A few hundred meters to the east you’ll find the State Fisheries department. A 3-4 storey old stone building with free dockage available, with about 8-9 foot draft.
At the State Fisheries department, there is a free aquarium exhibit you can go see with the kids. They claim to have every type of fish on display that you might find in Lake Ontario. In addition to that, there are many interesting items on display.
Other than that there is not a whole lot else to do in Cape Vincent. It is a good place to clear customs, they have a full customs office. There are a few restaurants within walking distance, like the Roxy. However, I would not recommend Captain Jack’s which is near the docks. Read my review on Urban Spoon if you want to know more.
