Providing Experiential Learning and Community Connections to Finger Lakes and Their Watersheds


All proceeds from our tourist cruises support Discover Cayuga Lake’s non-profit educational missionVisitors may also have a chance to meet youth educators and participate in community science projects they are managing on the lake. Our crew sees themselves as ambassadors to the Finger Lakes. We look forward to sharing information and personal insights to make your visit a wonderful Finger Lakes experience!

Public Boat Tours and Eco-Tourism Coming in 2018!

We're raising money right now to complete acquisition of the MV Teal, which will allow us to expand our educational services and introduce a unique eco-tourism opportunity in the Finger Lakes. MV Teal comfortably accommodates over 60 passengers, and we look forward to offering a weekly schedule of relaxing, interpretive lake tours for individual visitors and groups, along with charters and special events highlighting the close connections between Finger Lakes products, people and natural resources.

The Discover Cayuga Lake Floating Classroom offers educational programs for schools and community groups throughout the year, but a Discover Cayuga Lake eco-cruise aboard Teal will not be school!  Visitors will enjoy comfortable accommodations, spectacular views, an attentive crew, and opportunities to sample seasonal products, from apples to wine.
