Come on a Wine and Lunch Cruise aboard Captain Jim’s Wine Cruises! Passengers will Enjoy a Cayuga Lake Cruise aboard our 26 foot Wellcraft 260 Eclipse to Three Wineries, and enjoy a relaxing Lunch Break at Thirsty Owl's fantastic Bistro with breath taking views from high above Cayuga Lake.
Your Wine and Lunch Cruise will leave Dean's Cove State Boat
Launch promptly at 10 AM. We'll cruise about 20 minutes North up the West side
of Cayuga Lake to Varick Winery and Country Store. At about 11:15 AM
we'll leave Varick and Cruise South along the West side of the lake, taking in
all the beauty the lake shore has to offer.
About Noon we'll arrive at the dock of Thirsty Owl Wine Company.
You'll have lunch at Thirsty Owl's fantastic Bistro and taste Thirsty Owl
Wines. This stop takes about two hours depending on how busy they are. (Lunch
is Not included in the price of the Wine Cruise.)
The afternoon stop can be Sheldrake Point Winery to the South or
Goose Watch Winery to the North (both are on the West side of the lake.) You'll
have about 45 minutes for our afternoon stop before we head back to Dean's Cove
State Boat Launch.
Groups over six people
require the boat to make two trips. In that case the last stop of the day will
be Goose Watch Winery, as it's less than one mile from Dean's Cove and
minimizes waiting time.
