LOW WATER DELAYS CRUISE SEASON

Each winter, Cayuga's water level is lowered 4 feet in anticipation of spring runoff.  With no snow and very little rain this spring, the Lake remains over two feet below normal.  Until the water comes up, the MV Haendel cannot access docks at the south end of Cayuga. 

We hope to open our cruise season Sunday, May 6, at Ithaca's Water Week celebration.  Ithaca Farmers Market.  1-hour cruises at 11:00 and 12:30, and a 2-hour eco-cruise at 2:00pm.  See you there!
