Wonderful experience. Captain and crew very knowledgeable about the ship, the lake and the genealogy area. Crew very friendly and efficient. Refreshments served were reasonably priced. The weather cooperated and made the 2 hr. Cruise worth every penny. Highly recommend this experience. Thanks.

Not much to see for the 2 hour cruise. The cost of the cruise and what you get is not worth it. The winery that poured didn't even go through 1 bottle for all the passengers. I would have been better off taking the 130...More

Took an evening cruise on the True Love Schooner. Crew members were knowledgeable and attentive. Boat offers wine and beer for sale and water, sodas, and light refreshments for free. It was a relaxing and an enjoyable experience.

Not the most comfortable 2 hour ride being that there's no back support, and there's not much to see other than the Hector Falls, but if the weather is nice (which it was for our sail), this is a relaxing time. We had little interaction...More

This 2-hour sail is a great experience. Captain Bill and crew were very hospitable, and the boat is beautiful. We had a perfect July night with a nice breeze, and a great wine tasting by Atwater Vineyards.
