Seneca Lake Finger Lakes located in Upstate New York on the beautiful 1926 John Alden Schooner True Love.

The sunset cruise aboard the schooner True Love was the perfect way to end a day spent hiking the gorge. Captain and crew are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and fun.

The sunset cruise aboard the schooner True Love was the perfect way to end a day spent hiking the gorge and exploring the area. Captain and crew are extremely knowledgeable, friendly and easy going. Book early as the peak sails fill up quickly! Spectacular views! An experience you will long remember!

I loved it great informed crew great way to spend a sunny day. But keep in mind it is a boat and they do move through the water. So if you feel from motion sickness it's not the crews fault.

We went on the afternoon excursion on the True Love with some true friends. The autumn view was spectacular, the crew was very friendly. Would highly recommend spending a couple of hours on the excursion next time you're in Watkins Glen.

Loved sailing on the "True Love"...schooner ride on Lake Seneca. As the wind picked up, the boat was almost on its side-very exciting! Beautiful views of the lake all around. Staff friendly and just a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours on this pretty big sailboat!

We went for the mid-afternoon sail on the 'True Love' on Seneca Lake. The crew was wonderful, very knowledgeable about the area. I just think a sail straight up the lake would've been better viewing than just a back and forth on the southern end for and hour... an hour up one side and an hour down the other would've... More
