Tiohero Tours will offer daily historical narrated lake
tours originating from both our home dock at 435 Old Taughannock Blvd.
and from the Ithaca
Farmers Market at Steamboat Landing. See schedule or call toll
free 1-866-846-4376 for information and reservations.
Tiohero Tours hopes to raise public awareness of
water quality issues affecting beautiful Cayuga Lake.
With this in mind, we are committed to keeping our own
impact on the lake to a minimum while providing as much opportunity for
hands on education with the least impact on the lake as possible.
efforts towards this goal include using bio-diesel fuel made from a
mixture of diesel and plant oils. Additionally, we are using a
biodegradable antifouling paint
on Haendel's bottom rather than the traditional
toxic copper based bottom paints that are currently widely used in the
marine industry. The new
biodegradable paint we are using is the first of its kind in the US.
We hope its use catches on!!
Tiohero Tours will work
closely with schools and organizations to develop a set of educational,
research and commercial programs and will strongly encourage the use of
the vessel as a platform from which groups or individuals can launch
their own research projects. Tiohero
Tours also offers the
floating classroom as an interesting option for tourists and
