A lovely 2 hours sailing on Lake Seneca on the original sailboat from the movie "High Society." The crew were super nice! The excursion is pricey but we thought it was worth it..

We sailed the afternoon cruise. The weather was crisp and the winds on Lake Seneca perfect for sailing. Cruising the lake gives you another perspective of the area. The crew were attentive and knowledgable. Booked by calling the day prior to sailing.
