I was quite reluctant to do this trip, as the past couple of "sailing" trips have been about 10% sail, 90% motor. This was the opposite, as Captain James had us under sail for most of the trip. Grab seats in the back of the boat so you can converse with Captain James, who's a rally interesting guy. Great view... More

My husband and I wanted to escape Rochester for a night and spend some screen-free, outdoorsy time together. So, we booked a campsite at Watkins Glen and an evening sail. The experience was lovely. We chatted with a fantastic crewmember (his name escapes me, but for the businesses sake, he is a captain, but not of that boat and in... More

Sailing around Seneca Lake on the "True Love" was a wonderful experience. The boat itself is beautiful and immaculately maintained. Seating was very comfortable, and they don't oversell each trip, so you're not crammed in with the other passengers and really have the space to relax and enjoy the ride. The crew were all fantastic, really friendly and attentive. Both... More

Lisa worked with us to be sure we were moved from the sunset cruise that could have been rained out to an earlier one that had some drizzeles but that only added to the fun Warm staff and great experience. Our tour had one shy of the max number of people and it did feel crowded. Wonderful day pn the... More

There were four times to choose from the day we went. It was a very hot afternoon and the lake breeze felt incredible. No charge for parking and you can pay right at the dock . Wonderful and knowledgable staff on a classic 1926 sailboat. A fun two hour cruise we will definitely do again.

We went on the True Love schooner Monday night, August 17, 2015. The crew was so polite, attentive and friendly. The food and drinks were very good, especially the local cheeses. The only disappointment was that we weren't able to sail because there was no wind, which was NO fault of the schooner, the captain or the mates. I know... More

Went with my 9 and 11 year old. The crew is great and it is a beautiful way to spend a couple of hours! Highly recommend. Saw beautiful sights and learned about the lake and sailing. The crew took the kids below to explore as well.

If you are planning on sailing on the True Love remember the sunset cruises fill up well in advance! But sunset is not the only excursion offered.My companion and I after the initial disappointment of not being able to book the "romantic" time slot settled for the three o'clock sailing and were more than glad we did. Along with approximately... More
