We planned a sail during our stay in the area, but rescheduled initially due to weather conditions. I had been speaking with Terry for months before our visit. He is a lovely, warm man who shared his experience and knowledge of the area to make our visit even more special. In the end, we did not get to sail on... More

Winds 15 knots - gusts to 24knots and it was smooth sailing. Terry,Lisa & Anchor make a great team. The Lee Sea Anne 1 was large enough to give all passengers room and was well Maintained A lasting memory was made Thanks Terry Greg & Lantha Quesenberry

We met Terry on the dock behind the marina restaurant. There was also another couple on this cruise. Terry's wife Lisa also came along and brought their little dog, Anchor. We had a 3 hour cruise scheduled and when it started off the wind was not doing it's thing so we motored. No big deal as when we did get... More

My husband and I enjoyed a relaxing Saturday morning sail with Terry as our captain. He's such a pleasant guy, warm and friendly - we chatted about all kinds of things during our 3 hour sail. The weather was perfect, the sailboat is comfortable, and overall this sail was the highlight of our weekend at Seneca Lake. I would absolutely... More

My family and I had a wonderful time doing this on our recent trip to the Finger Lakes. Captain Terry and Lisa were knowledgable and informative, sharing information about the area, but more importantly they were incredibly warm, friendly, and personable. We talked and laughed with them about a number of things, and also had plenty of time to relax... More

Coming from Dayton, Ohio, we were recommended "Seneca Sailing Adventures" from my fiance's family, who have a house on Seneca Lake. There were 4 of us who sailed and were a part of this special experience. I spoke with Terry over the phone weeks before we arrived. I wanted to make sure that this was "the right thing" for us...

My husband and I went out with Captain Terry and his partner Lisa today. There were 2 other couples on board with us for a total of 8 people (6 guests and 2 crew) on board. There was still plenty of room and it was comfortable. Terry is very knowledgeable about the area. He is also really easy going and... More

Celebrating a wedding anniversary recently, we sailed on a sunny hot day, winds and sails full out, peaceful and invigorating. Captain Terry and 1st mate Lisa were knowledgeable and perfect hosts. After giving us directions over the phone, even waited for us to make the departure with another couple. So personal. What a delight! We will be back!

This was awesome. Take your own beverage and snack and enjoy a quite and peaceful sail on the beautiful lake. The Captain and First Mate are top notch with lots of local stories, recommendations and information about the lakes.

We found this great sailing adventure online, and booked with Terry for a very fun, informative, and relaxing trip on Seneca. The harbor is in Watkins Glen and we sailed up the lake from there a few miles. It was a quiet and calm summer morning so the wind was light and picked up as time went on. The gentle... More
