We sailed on the 'true love' yacht and the experience was fantastic. The crew offered complimentary cheese and fruits and soft drinks. They also had a (paid) wine and beer menu to choose from. The fantastic views of the fall colors added to the experience.

Was in Watkins Glen for one night. At last minute took the hour cruise of the lake. Was great, learned a lot about Seneca Lake. They offer a variety of cruises to choose from, not just one cruise fits all
