We booked the dinner cruise. I thought it to be a bit pricey. The tour was nice but was expecting a little more history about the Lake. The price of the wine was way too expensive since we are in the Finger Lake Wine area. Love the local wines and I know how much they are in the winerys since I toured them. Paid to much for the wine and then they gave us plastic glasses to drink it...The food was very good.

The price comes close to fine dining but the quality comes closer to mediocre fast food. You do get a huge pitcher of Sangria but you probably will not want to finish it. In short, a tourist trap.

We did a sightseeing cruise during the day. It was about an hour. It was a nice relaxing cruise and the captain and helper had great information to share. Not really exciting or breathtaking scenery, but it was nice.

Great band; good food; nice crew; ship-shape vessel; sunset views. All fine fun with friends taking in the sights and sounds of marvelous Seneca Lake on a summer time eve.

We took this to a couple of days ago...
It only lasts about 50 minutes but then the price is only about $19 so what do you think you're going to get.

The captain is on board with his crew mate. They both take turns and telling you interesting stories about the lake.
The boat is comfortable and goes at a slow pace. They talked about harvesting salt. Fishing and other little bits and pieces.. the lake is very pretty.

To be honest there's not much to the tour but it's a nice little spin around the lake to waste close to 1 hour. Make sure your on time if it's every hour on the hour because he leaves on the dot or just before.

Buy your tickets in the office close by and there's free parking right there. When you get off the boat there's a phenomenal restaurant with a ton of different seafood dishes to eat at. There's a really nice Pier close to the boat dock that you can walk around all in all the neighborhood is very attractive
