The crew was very friendly and made us feel comfortable. We didn't have much wind the night we went, but it was still a calming and relaxing evening. It's a great experience, especially if you've never been on a sailboat before.

With weather conditions, wanted to make sure picked a good day to utilize the boat for what is worth- sailing. Disappointed the crew did not share about their experiences with the sail or asked anyone who sailed. It would been nice to interact more. All in all the boat performed very well with the windy conditions. With being on the... More

Husband has always been wanting to go sailing and this was the perfect opportunity as a fill-in activity before an afternoon wedding. The boat is wonderful and the crew amazing. Seneca Lake is beautiful and we had the perfect day to sail 25mph winds. A definite must do if you are at the lake and have sometime.

We booked this trip while driving down to Watkins Glen. We wanted to go on a boat ride on Seneca Lake and found this online. We loved the idea of the schooner's connection to the movie "High Society". The boat did not disappoint. We had such a great time. We took the mid afternoon sail. The crew was so pleasant... More

We recently sailed on the True Love - had a wonderful time. It was a perfect day and the crew was great. Can't say enough about this boat - and would definitely go again the next time that we are in the Seneca Lake area.

We took the mid-afternoon cruise on the True Love with Captain James, and crew Jessica and Matt. All three were extremely professional while at the same time being friendly and sociable. The Captain even let Matt take my daughters and another young girl on a tour of the cabin underneath the deck. Our weather was perfect. Pleasantly warm and enough... More

A wonderful sail with an experienced friendly helpful crew. The captain explained how the sails and wind work together about the rich history of the well maintained schooner. Could not have been better!

Perfect. The schooner was beautiful. It starred in the movie High Society. The captain and crew were very attentive and did a wonderful job. It was very relaxing and the weather was a little calm but we still got to sail up the lake a ways. This trip includes the sailing, drinks and appetizers. Alcoholic beverages are extra. The scenery... More
