My husband and I took the morning sail today and loved it. The winds were perfect and were moving at a great speed at times. True Love's staff, Kelsy, Matt and Dan were so friendly, informative and made the excursion wonderful! Beer, wine and mimosas were available for purchase at very reasonable prices. Captain Dan really gave a nice sail and covered both sides of the lake, Hector Falls, came close to the coasts, very scenic. Highly recommend if visiting Watkins Glen!

Was really excited for the pre-booked sunset cruise. But on route our tire blew and as 4th of July told by the state trooper who looked after us that we couldn't get it replaced that day and would have to return home with donut wheel. After recovering from shock of accident called the company right away (1.5hrs prior to departure time) to explain situation. The number they give you to call for last minute directions or help. No answer. Left message. They called back 5min before the departure time of cruise to laugh at my request of a refund. The lady was really uncaring. When I emailed the next day to explain I couldn't re-book as flying back to uk the next day was told too bad you can't be refunded. This was $100. Not just a little bit of money. Really disappointed. Very poor customer service. Would not recommend and will ensure I spread the word.

Nice trip and friendly crew. There was a cash bar and fruit and cheese was included. Would do it again and recommend you try it!

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!
