Vermont is one of the most northeasterly of the United States. To the north it borders on the province of Quebec, Canada and is the only New England state that does not have an Atlantic coastline. Vermont is bordered by three states, which are Massachussetts to the south, New Hampshire to the east and New York to the west. The state capital is Montpelier, with the most populous city being Burlington.

Vermont has a humid continental climate, which provides cold winters and humid summers. Not surprisingly, the coldest month is January with an average temperature range of 31f/-0.5c (high) and a 9f/-13c (low). July temperatures on average are around the 70f/21c mark. Average rainfall throughout the year is quite constant at either just under 3 inches or just above 3 inches per month.

As Vermont is one of the smallest states, the diving within the state is very much centered on Lake Champlain. The lake is some 125 miles in length and at its widest point is 14 miles across, with a maximum depth of 400 feet. The lake covers the states of Vermont and New York and also, spreads in to Canada. The two US states have set up the Lake Champlain Underwater Historic Preserve System, which allows divers to visit the wrecks, but pre- registration is required. Details of the wrecks that can be dived, can be found at The Maritime Museum in Vergennes, Vermont.
