This is a very slow paced ride. The crew was outstanding but there was no information on the area. Too slow, too long for us.

This was our first time on a sailboat, and my husband and I were very much looking forward to it! We were able to book the sunset sail the day that we wanted to do it, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. Captain Jim did a great job in explaining the history of the "True Love" sailboat and... More

Took the wife and kids (13 and 11) on the "True Love" this afternoon, and had a wonderful time. Captain Jim and crew Gavin and Matt were all very friendly, engaging, and eager to make sure we had a great cruise. The boat will cruise with a maximum of 23 guests, and there were 18 on our tour. There was... More

Bad weather postponed our Wed noon sail to Thurs. My goodness, so glad we stayed over & did this! A glorious 2-hour sail "tacking" back & forth across the beautiful Seneca Lake up to Hector Falls and back. Gorgeous boat, crew was very gregarious, and the lake is stunning.

My husband loves sailing and has taken a few lessons, but years have gone by without the opportunity for him to continue. He is also an old movie buff, so booking a ride on the historic schooner, "True Love" was one of my priorities on our recent trip to Watkins Glen. (the ship had a role in the 1956 movie... More

I just got to spend the day on "True Love" and it was so relaxing! The Captain and crew are very attentive to making your trip enjoyable from serving drinks to taking photos. We were allowed to take our own snacks you don't see that very often. If your planning a trip or live in the area it's a great... More

I've never been on a sailboat and was actually quite nervous since I'm not a big water fan and didn't want to get "sea sick" either. (I'm prone to sickness on moving objects! 😜) But it was a very enjoyable morning ride. I didn't feel ill once and was quite relaxed. We were out on the water for an hour... More
