“Just wanted to reach out and say thank you for everything on our trip. We loved the experience on your exceptional boat and with you and your crew. Thank you for letting us sit in front and laugh with joy.”  ~ Paul P.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, Cayuga Excursions will not be sailing the summer of 2020. We hope to see you all next year!

Welcome aboard s/v Ostara, a classic sailing sloop, for a half or full day cruise on the beautiful waters of Cayuga Lake. If you are up for adventure, our captain and crew will show you the ropes as you help sail the boat. Or feel free to relax and enjoy the ride in the ample cockpit or on the foredeck. Meet us at Treman State Marine Park and come experience the best of the Finger Lakes!
