Awesome! Captain Terry and crew were fantastic! We were celebrating my husband's birthday, and couldn't have picked a better activity! Got to see southern end of Seneca Lake, its rock formations, and falls. Saw a lot for the trip fee. Highly recommend!

Took the 2 hour sunset sail. Couldn't ask for more perfect weather. Easy to book online and even easier to park and find. The crew was all so nice and accommodating. Highly recommend for a peaceful way to end your day.
