A wonderful couple hours on Seneca Lake. Our excursion was a gentle motorboat ride d/t Mother Nature (missed the excitement of a sail!). Crew very nice, fresh fruit and delicious cheeses. An engagement took place at Hector Falls made this adventure memorable-Congratulations!!

Did sunset tour - was nice and calm and relaxing. They don't go too far - just cruising the bottom end of the lake - but they serve beer/wine (which you pay extra for) and free cheese/fruit snack as well as water/pepsi.

We really enjoyed our two hour afternoon sail on the True Love. Perfect way to spend the afternoon of our 10th wedding anniversary. Crew was friendly and very knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this to others!

We had perfect wind, which does help. The excursion was fully booked, but we were not crowded at all. They sell beer and wine on board at reasonable prices. The crew is super personable. Our two hour sail was a delightful experience.
