We took the dinner cruise and enjoyed our evening. The food was fine, nothing fancy, and the service friendly. There was a little bit of local information shared during the trip, but not as much as if we were on a scenic tour, which was...More

The one hour sightseeing cruise on the Stroller IV was excellent. Seneca Lake has a lot of history. The old boat itself is a piece of that history! The Captain and tour guide did a great job explaining the geology of the area. Seneca Lake...More

This past weekend (8/18) we took the 3 hour dinner cruise. For the price I would say it was not worth it at all. I have never before left scallops on a plate, but I left those. Basically little rubber nuggets in a broken sauce....More

Took a great one hour tour with The Updike's, father and son, and enjoyed it very much. It was quiet on this day, the Captain is very knowledgeable about the lake and it's history. Nice way to spend an hour. We actually did it while...More

We took a one hour tour during the afternoon (which are offered pretty much on the hour throughout the day). The left side is the better side of the boat to see the shoreline because the tour goes counterclockwise around the lake.
