“Best Time Ever”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with a School's Out wine cruise. The boat was so incredibly comfortable. Rick was AWESOME as our captain and facilitated some real VIP type treatment at the wineries. He is also very knowledgeable of the wineries and their wines so you experience the best that Finger Lakes wineries have to offer. This is truly a MUST BOOK experience for everyone; especially for visitors to the Ithaca area. Thanks Rick for an AWESOME day. Rich

“Best thing EVER!!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Experienced, knowledgable and friendly staff. Comfortable, clean and safe water craft. Cayuga Lake and the fabulous wines on it's shores… All the ingredients for a perfect day.

When you have a short amount of time in the Ithaca area, this is hands down the best way to experience the lake and visit a few wineries. If you've seen it all and done it all, this is hands down the most relaxing way to enjoy the best of the Finger Lakes.

“Great Fun on Cayuga Lake”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

Captain Rick took us for a wonderful motorboat ride on Cayuga Lake, stopping at three wineries - each different but excellent in their own way. The autumn weather was perfect and his new boat was really accommodating for the three/four hour trip. Captain Rick was very friendly and personable making the overall experience truly enjoyable.
