Captain Mike was fun and helpful. We had a great time and the boat was super nice! We brought a bottle of wine and enjoyed the sunset. Loved it. I plan to take my family next time.

Captain Mike was so accommodating and provided us with a great tour of some of the local wineries. The boat was some comfy and clean. We couldn't have asked for a better day.

Relaxing day's end sail on Cayuga Lake... Captain Mike was skilled, knowledgeable and easy on the eyes! The charter allows passengers to bring food and drink aboard... they provide a cooler, ice and cups. Mother Nature provides a spectacular sunset... no filter needed!
