Went with a group of 10 (four kids 12 and under) on a ride with True Love on July 4. Everyone involved, from the woman who checked us in to the crew members onboard, was extremely friendly and welcoming. The trip was about an hour and a half to two hours long. They offered and served us refreshments onboard. And the scenery up and down Seneca Lake was outstanding. Very highly recommend!

I was raised on the water so I love boat tours. Usually, if the weather cooperates, you're 75% there. Thankfully, we had AMAZING weather. The ship and crew were also great, so we were very satisfied. The crew was quick to answer questions and they were very attentive. Unlike other boat tours where everyone can move around/mingle freely, you mostly just sit on this one. Not on a seat, but just in the middle of the boat. I missed out on a seat cushion, so my boney butt was a little sore. but it was a very nice ride out and back (2 hrs total). Beautiful country and scenery. I'd probably go again with friends -

Great way to spend a couple of hours on the lake. The captain and assistants were pleasant...offering great service, drinks and light appetizers. Definitely worth the money and the time.

Experienced the cruise on True Love for the 2nd time on July 4th - winds were perfect today - had a fabulous afternoon on Seneca Lake. Owner Josh joined us and added his folklore commentary. Thanks to captain Bill and crew for a great sail.

We called for availability, were able to get onboard in under an hour. True Love is a gorgeous Malabar with historic roots. The captain was entertaining, & the crew was adorable. Ask for Kate & Kelsey. The owners of the boat are very nice people.

The two hour sail was so perfect, I wish it lasted all day.

A must do if you are in the area, we will definitely come back.
