I didn't want to get off! The two hour trip was just delightful. The boat is beautiful, clean and well loved. The crew is friendly and goes out of their way to take care of you. Drinks and cheese/fruit/meats were served, stories exchanged, it was just lovely. Bring a sweater with you, as it got chilly towards the end (they even had blankets!!).
If you want to relax, see beautiful views, have a snack and meet some lovely people, this is for you!

Went out on True love for the evening trip. What a beautiful old sailboat. Had a great trip with an amazing sunset. The food was way more than we had expected. Great cheeses and fruit. A great time for my honey and me.

We were thrilled with our 2 hour sail on this beautiful schooner. The personal attention we received was delightful. We had all our questions answered and many additional stories told to us as well. Chris even treated us to some tasty local cheese. We sighted a regal eagle high on the rocks on the eastern shore. It was a calm day but Captain Larry went out of his way to ensure that we caught the breezes which did come up. Many thanks for a memorable day!

I noticed this sailboat and remembered seeing it in St. Thomas many years ago. As a major sailing fan and Seneca Lake regular, I figured this sunset cruise would be great. Well, it was. I noticed some passengers who appeared to not have been familiar with the sailing experience and, when the True Love heeled in the strong wind, they were wondering what was going on. The crew calmly explained the physics of sailing and, within a short time, this couple was beaming with delight.

The staff was as cordial and professional as you could ever hope for. The sailing was great, and the food and drinks excellent.

Do not miss this wonderful attraction in one of the world's best kept vacation secret destinations.
