In the heart of the Finger Lakes is where you will find Cayuga Lake. It offers a unique blend of award-winning wines, scenic waterfalls and local gourmet eateries.
We would like to welcome you aboard our newest vessel, The Kye-OO-Gah. A beautiful and luxurious 25 ft. Tahoe Pontoon boat with a privacy room, porta potti, plenty of room, mood lighting and comfortable, plush seating. I have been a licensed US Coast Guard Charter Captain for 30+ years fishing Lake Ontario and the Finger Lakes aboard my fishing vessel Sea Wolf. http://seawolfcharters.net. I am a member of Lake Ontario Charter Boat Association (LOCBA), Lake Ontario Trout & Salmon Association (LOTSA), The Maritime Consortium and North America Fishing Club,
I take great pride in the service and mentorship I have provided my clients over the years. We now embark on a second venture that has evolved over the last few years, of providing Winery Cruises, Dinner Cruises and Sunset Cruises on Cayuga Lake in addition to the Sport-fishing Trout and Salmon Charters on Cayuga Lake and Lake Ontario.
Seneca Lake, Cayuga Lake and Keuka Lake each have a designated wine trail. On Cayuga Lake, there exists what just might be the only wine trail accessible by boat. There are six wineries on Cayuga Lake that have boating docks. What a splendorous way to tour the wineries aboard The Kye-OO-Gah.
The amazing thing about the wines of the Finger Lakes is that almost all the wines are priced under $20. Perhaps for this reason, plus the small production quantity, the wineries sell out of their wines. Some are exported, but most stay in the New York state. Many of the wineries only sell out of their tasting room or their online Web store. They are just happy and wonderful folks making enough wine to keep them busy and proud. It is unlike any wine region you will have visited. The Fingers Lakes is truly “A wine tasters paradise”. This is all the more reason why you should visit the Finger Lakes.
Cayuga Lake and the surrounding area have much to offer you and your family. Stunning sunsets, a cool summer breeze, and a laid back relaxing atmosphere are just a few of the simple pleasures that you'll find aboard the Kye-OO-Gah Winery, Dinner and Sunset Cruises.
We look forward to having you aboard The Kye-OO-Gah with us. We promise you will have a memorable and "Unforgettable Lake to Wineries and Dining Experience".

We are based out of Myers Park, Lansing NY
