“Great time at a great price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

Rick and crew are really great people to sip and sail with on Cayuga Lake. Rick is a super fun guy and really knowledgeable abou the wineries and the region. He's unbiased about the wineries he takes you to. If you want to go, you're there. And there's never a wait. Once you pull up to the dock, a vehicle is waiting for you.

You'll get interesting stories about each vineyard, the lake, and the communities surrounding the town. Ask about the Seneca Guns. Interesting story.

“Wine tours by boat....the only way to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2011

My husband and I were in ithaca for a wedding and decided to stay an extra day to tour the wineries. This cruise was awesome! Rick and his first mate did a wonderful job and were very hospitable and knowledgeable of the region. We loved how relaxing it was...they were on pace with us so we were able to spend as much or as little time at each place that we wanted. We Visited 4 wineries and were able to eat lunch at Longpoint Winery which has phenomenal fresh deli sandwiches. We ended with a bit of a scenic tour where they shared alot of information about the surrounding area and we took in the beautiful scenery. We highly recommend the tour! Also thanks to rick for giving us some advice on boating!

“Cayuga Lake - Winery Touring by Boat - School's Out Charters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2010

The six of us met Captain Rick (and First Mate Tony) at the Lansing, NY marina, boarded his immaculate and comfortable late model speed boat and traveled the lake for six hours, all for a very reasonable cost. We visited four wineries, swam in the middle of the lake, brought our own packed lunch and beverages, and had a great day.
This is a great service and Captain Rick was most accommodating to all our requests! Do it!!
