We enjoyed learning more about the Finger Lakes--lots of great trivia and new information for us. The boat is enclosed so there's plenty of shade. This trip made for a fun afternoon.

I felt the 50 minute ride was just long enough to be a good addition to the day, without becoming boring. The ride itself was slow and relaxing, with a very nice breeze on a hot July day.

It was $16.00 per person, but things change. You might want to look them up on the net, or give them a call. I googled Stroller IV, and got their web page. The dinner cruise was more, but we didn't do that.
