The crew was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable. We purchased wine and they served local cheese and fruit. Many photo ops so be sure to bring your camera.

We took the sunset cruise, had a great time. Crew and captain were friendly, service was excellent. Very stable boat, slightly choppy day and it was hardly noticeable. Would recommend it to anyone.

Went on a 2 hour sail on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. It was my first time on a sailboat, and the crew went out of their way to make it a fabulous experience! Limited capacity meant that there was a wonderful chance to socialize and chat with other guests, which made the cruise even more enjoyable. Absolutely beautiful views! If... More

4 of us went for a 2 hour sail on Seneca Lake aboard the True Love. It was a great experience well worth the trip from Rochester to Watkins Glen. Bring your camera as the sights are breathtaking. Well experienced crew makes you feel right at home. Adult beverages and water are offered on board as well. Before or after... More

This was my first experience on a sailboat. My friend and I were anxious to do this because of the history of the schooner in the movie "High Society." It was a beautiful day and the 2-hour ride was wonderful. The Captain and crew were extremely friendly and knowledgeable and everyone enjoyed the afternoon. I would definitely do this again!

We wanted a very special experience for our family get together to celebrate my parents 65th anniversary and we got it with this trip. We had 14 people, some of whom had flown in from California and Seattle and Atlanta, and everyone loved it and voted the boat trip the highlight of our week together. Lisa was very helpful in...

Beautiful sunset on the lake! Captain James and his crew were very friendly and provided an excellent service - kept the wine and hors d'oeuvres coming! Not much wind, but they still put the sails up. Very enjoyable experience!

This tour has a great crew, great wine and appetizers. Good way to learn about the area. Learned about wineries, history, and the lake.

Nice day on the lake, even though not much wind. The crew and captain are quite friendly and interactive. They let my son steer the boat for some time and taught him about sailing knots. This is definitely a must do while in Watkins Glen.
