“And a good time was had by all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

We truly enjoyed our day on Lake Cayuga with Captain Skip! It was nearly the end of the season, and a rather blustery day, but we were comfortable and sheltered on the boat. We made 3 winery stops, one including a memorable turkey Reuben sandwich! The small size of the group and Capt Skip's informative commentary were great for our first time in the Finger Lakes region. So glad we found this tour!

“water to wine=fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

we managed to hook up with captain dennis at the silver strand, as we were staying next door at the driftwood inn. ( a great place with wonderful owners, if the s.s. is booked) the boat ride was very smooth and captain dennis filled us with stories and info that made the trip just fly by. . . even tho we had a small transportation problem at thirsty owl, the tastings, and comeraderie were outstanding! a no brainer recommendation for anyone staying in the finger lakes area!

I recently went on a Water to Wine tour with four friends for a bachelorette party. Skip was very accommodating and made our day very special and fun! Would definitely go again!

“RIGHT IN MY OWN BACKYARD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

How nice it was to tour Cayuga Lake, especially since it's in our own backyard. Capt. Skip did a great job, giving us lots of information that we never knew. Seeing the shoreline from the lake was a real treat since we know most of the folks who live along Cayuga Lake. We can't recommend this trip enough. Relax and let the Captain do the "driving".

“Fun day on Cayuga Lake!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Great trip with Capt Skip. We were lucky enough to be staying at the Silver Strand, and set sail from there on what started as a cloudy and windy day. 1st stop was Sheldrake Point where we could walk to the winery from the dock. Beautiful setting and good wines. The weather improved as we headed back to the boat for our next stop at Thirsty Owl. Fun ride through the vineyard on the Kubota up to the winery and bistro. Had lunch at the bistro- excellent Mac and Cheese. Across the lake to Long Point - SUV picks us up from the dock. Very friendly and attentive tasters at all 3 wineries. Learned much about the area from Capt Skip. Enjoyed being out on the beautiful Cayuga Lake on what turned out to be a sunny and warm day. This tour was the highlight of our Finger Lakes experience!
