There are currently no other large tour boats operating on Cayuga Lake. For smaller charters (6 people or less) there are a couple options. Spindrift charters operate a small sailboat out of Ithaca (607-280-7474), Schools out charters do fishing trips and charters aboard their motor boat (607-280-3538). The Finger Lakes boating center also does pontoon boat rentals, although they are often booked out a number of weeks. There are also two electric boats that hold 8-12 ppl being put into service by Lincoln Morse. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 607-592-8071.
For other big tour boats, your best bets are Captain Bill’s Seneca Lake cruises out of Watkins Glen for dinner tours and hourly sightseeing cruises, Schooner True Love (also in Watkins) for cruises aboard a historic schooner, and Midlakes Navigation (in Skaneateles) for sightseeing and dinner cruises aboard their historic tour boat. Watkins Glen is about 40 minutes to the West of Ithaca and Skaneateles is about an hour to the Northeast.
