They made the time on the schooner not only relaxing and enjoyable but also informative. Everyone had a great time and the crew were enthusiastic and enjoyed their jobs. Had a disbled person with us and that was not an issue at all.

“Pleasant sail but pricey....”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

Read many good things about this sailing cruise so my wife and I thought we'd give it a whirl. We attended the afternoon cruise on August 4th and unfortunately did not have the wind in our favour. Most of the cruise was by motor ... what made the trip interesting was the narrative provided by our captain and first hand, Greg and Gary.
For 40 bucks a person, I guess I expected a little more than a diet pepsi and a chug-along the bank of the lake.
Perhaps with wind, actual sailing of this vessel would have been a much more pleasant experience. I don't think that this boat was actually in the 1926 movie as advertised...... just a gimmick.

“Great way to spend a couple of hours on the Lake”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

My wife and I travel to Watkins Glen every August for the NASCAR race. We have seen the "True Love" for several years, but haven't had the time to go for a sail. What a great way to spend a couple of hours on Senca Lake. The wind was perfect and the crew took very good care of us. We will be back!

Reviewed 12 August 2011

If you are looking to get on the water but don't want to rent your own boat or hire a private boat, this is the way to go. Relaxing, sail on Seneca Lake. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable of sailing and the area.

“amazing a must do!”
Reviewed 12 August 2011

We have been coming to Watkins for some time now and this is the first time we finally decided yes were going on the sail boat! And boy are we kicking ourselves for not going sooner!! It was a fantastic 2 hour trip with a great Captin and deck hands. A wonderful laid back time with just fantastic sailing!! Every year we walk through the Glen- I think we will be changing and every yr we will be taking a sailing trip with the Schooner "True Love"!! A must do on your list!!
