Crew was friendly and it was nice to chat with them and other vacationers for a bit. The boat was nice and comfortable. My husband has a tendency to get sea sick and he was fine during this. It was an enjoyable experience!

Although I've been on the True Love two times and have yet to sail (Mother Nature was not cooperative), I still find this excursion a worthwhile event. In order to get the full experience of the Finger Lakes, you really need to see one of...More

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.

The crew is friendly, the lake is beautiful and the boat is "yar", as they say in Philadelphia Story, the original movie that High Society, which used this boat, is based on. When the breeze is going, the ride is exhilarating, but Seneca's winds are...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
