About
Boat cruises to Wineries along Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes region of New York State. Cruises are by reservation only. All Cruises leave Dean's Cove State Marine Park at 10:30 AM and return about 4:30 PM depending on how busy the wineries are that day. Cruises board at Dean's Cove State Marine Park at 5753 Route 89, Romulus, New York 14541. You'll have opportunities to taste award winning Finger Lakes wines. While we cruise on beautiful Cayuga Lake you're welcome to enjoy wine you've purchased at the wineries or a beverage you brought with you. Reservations required. You can choose a date and book right on Captain Jim's website. Customers must be physically able to step up and down from Winery docks to the boat. There is some walking involved at some of the Wineries. No children or pets please. Captain Jim may cancel any cruise in the event of unsafe weather conditions. At that time we can reschedule your cruise, or refund your payment.

Captain Jim was incredible! He’s very knowledgeable of the area which meant several interesting stories on the history (which we love). He made sure we had a blast the entire time. His pontoon is in ship-shape with cozy seats. We would recommend him time and time again!! Thanks, Captain Jim :)

We took a wine tour with Captain Jim in mid-July of '23. I can't say enough about how great it was. We spent four days doing cool things in the Finger Lakes region, but the wine cruise is what we still talk about. Captain Jim's covered pontoon boat is luxurious -- like travelling in a classy living room, but still open to the cool lake air and views. At each destination, Captain Jim contacts the winery, which sends a vehicle to pick you up and take you the short ride up. The wineries are all very nice and different from each other, so you get a good variety. Again, this was such a great addition to our vacation, and one that I would definitely do again.

What a fun day! We had a beautiful day sampling wine. This was the way to do it! So much fun! Captain Jim was a great captain. He pointed out several things on our way to the wineries. He also scheduled our tastings. He has a speaker that you can link your music app to. Always nice to have your own music. I was nervous about getting on and off the boat, but Captain Jim helps you. Great fun!

Traveling in Captain Jim's boat with 4 other fun people, was one of the highlight of our trip.
Thirsty Owl was the best winery he took us to. We had a fabulous lunch after the wine tasting by a well informed staff member. The other two wineries we okay, but didn't have much in the way of nibbles to have with the wine, nor did they do any presentation to describe the wines.

5 stars for a delightful day!
