We took the scenic cruise today on the Remedy. Terry, the captain was very informative. The day was perfect for a boat ride. This was a very enjoyable cruise! We will go again!

Take a ride on a classic schooner and enjoy excellent seaman (woman) ship on beautiful Seneca Lake which looks more like a fjord than a lake. See the sites and enjoy the thrill of sail power.

We took the sunset cruise o the True Love. The crew of three were wonderful ad very knowledgeable of the lake and area. The refreshments were very tasty. The alcohol was extra but not costly. We really enjoyed the time on the lake. Two hour cruise.

Just had a fantastic sail on the schooner True Love. The boat is beautiful (it was featured in the movie High Society) and Jessie, Matt and Bill were a great crew. I would highly recommend taking a sail and enjoying the hospitality and the beauty of this fine boat.

It was an romantic sailing experience. The crew was very friendly and hospitable. They even gave out blankets when it started getting chilly. I was a little concerned due to the stormy sky. But Captain Jimmy knew his way around, He dodged the clouds really well and maintained everyone's safety at all times. The hector falls view is amazing. I... More

June 4th gave us a beautiful evening with light winds. The crew was gracious and the cruise was relaxing. Views on the lake were great. Thanks for the TLC with local produce/cheese snacks and beverages. Wonderful way to spend a summer evening.

Scenic, professional, factual information on history and geography from 5 Star Mates, to a 5 Star Captain. A must do while in Watkins Glen, N.Y. Classy, but very down to earth sailing experience.
