We took the sunset sail and it was delightful! We really enjoyed our time on the True Love, a beautifully maintained piece of sailing history. The crew is rightly proud of her and worked to be sure everyone had a safe and enjoyable sail.

Had a great time on True Love, the sailboat on Senaka Lake. The staff and crew were friendly, informative and made the sail great. Two hours of smooth sailing on a beautiful lake. Highly recommend this activity.

We had an overcast and chilly day for our sale. 12 - 15 Knot consistent breeze made for a great ride. The crew was knowledgeable of local history and lore. They kept the guests safe, comfortable and entertained.

Fabulous boat, impeccably maintained, wonderful crew and a beautiful day, although not much wind. If you love boats and the water, don't miss it and even if you are not a boater the captain and crew make it a great experience!
