Champlain Marina is about 10 miles north of Burlington
Mallets Bay is separated from the “Broad Lake” by the Colchester Causway. The causeway is an old abandoned railroad bed built on piles of large rocks. The passage opening was once a swing bridge that has been removed.
There are lots of weeds along the east side of the causeway. When approaching the passage from the Broad Lake in late summer, the weeds are grown and close to the water surface.
When approaching from the south, be sure to know where Colchester Reef is located. They say the reef is littered with pieces of propellers.
