Of course the beautiful boat and setting at Seneca Lake are wonderful, but the staff made the experience great. They are friendly and accommodating to everyone. We went on the sunset sail, which was lovely and peaceful. Highly recommend!

We had an amazing experience on our sunset cruise last week. It was a perfect summer day to be on the water. The crew was friendly and attentive to our questions. This was my first time on a schooner or any other sailboat. I was apprehensive but they were patient and reassuring. It was a beautiful, relaxing experience. I loved the peace and quiet and would highly recommend!

We had a great time on our afternoon trip aboard True Love. A beautiful boat and beautiful surroundings. The crew was great and informative. We look forward to following them on their journey down the east coast this fall. Save travels to you Lisa and crew!

We sailed on the ‘True Love’ in the Caribbean many years ago. When we found it had been relocated to Seneca Lake, it went on our bucket list. Lisa, Terry and Bill did not disappoint. The sailboat is a 1926 wooden schooner expertly restored and in great condition. It has a wonderful history which you should check out on line, or just wait for the stories once onboard. When sailing you are always at the mercy of the wind, but despite changing conditions the crew kept it fun and enjoyable. The typical sail is 2 hours long and beverages (complimentary water) are offered on board throughout the trip. The crew handles everything so you don’t need to worry about having to hoist sails as we’ve encountered on some other voyages in our life. You just sit back, relax, and enjoy the sights and the experience. Was well worth the price for a sail down memory lane!
