We had a fabulous two hour trip on Seneca Lake on the True Love. This is a beautiful, old schooner with two masts and three sails. It is not only beautiful to observe on the lake, but also a very exciting sail. The cost is well worth the ride. The staff was very gracious. We were lucky to have a... More

I really enjoyed the 2 hours on Seneca Lake! Free waters and reasonably priced beer and wine. Friendly crew.

Wife, grandson and I took an afternoon cruise on a beautiful summer day. The crew shared interesting information about the boat, lake and surrounding area while taking us up the lake and back. They were great with both adults and kids. We went on our wedding anniversary and decided that gift certificates for cruises on True Love will be our... More

What a great way to relax and enjoy the water and spectacular views, on a beautiful historic schooner. Bring a camera, dress comfortably, bring friends, and plan to be impressed. The Captain and crew were entertaining, the trip was leisurely, we met people from all over, and the crew offered cold refreshments during the course of the trip. We would... More

Couldn't ask for more! The crew was very friendly. Lots of room to move around and lots of pillows. Seneca Lake surroundings are picturesque and even some water falls. Worth the cost.

We had a great time. Beautiful day, historic, comfortable boat and accommodating, friendly crew. One of the highlights of our trip to Seneca Lake. Would recommend to anyone.

While we unfortunately didn't get much wind and had to motor, (not their fault), it was a beautiful ride and we really enjoyed getting out on the lake. It is a little expensive ($49 per person for the sunset cruise) but I wouldn't hesitate to go again. It was great! :D

What a nice sail! Took the sunset sail, which is 2 hrs. Nice, slow sail up and across Lake Seneca. We're served nice appetizers of fruit, cheese, and crackers; drinks available for purchase. The crew were very nice and friendly. At first I thought the group was too big for the boat (I think there were 22 of us), but... More

We had a 90 minute ride on the Schooner. The day was hot, but but the breeze on the lake was refreshing. We took the morning cruise (10 - 11:30). One of the crew members was especially informative about the boat and the area. The price was reasonable ($29 / person). It was a fun and relaxing experience and a... More

What a wonderful cruise. We've missed the cruise in the past due to timing so we were so excited that the weather was with us. The Captain and crew were so pleasant and made you feel right at home. We sailed the entire 2 hours, stopped at scenic vistas for pictures. We'll go back again, and again, and again. My... More
