Fantastic Sailing and Wine!

Wednesday night "Wine in the Wind" was a fabulous way to see the waterfront and sample wines. Staff was wonderful and informative. Great date night destination.

A group of us decided to do the "wines in the wind" evening... For $42 you got 5 or so wine samplings and some cheese on a paper plate. The boat is beautiful, the captain and crew very friendly, but the night wasn't what I thought it would be. It felt rather "cheap" and could have been done a little... More

The spirit of Buffalo is a beautiful sail boat. The ride was smooth, they played music which was soothing and enjoyable, and the staff was fantastic. You can buy drinks on board at a very reasonable price. A great way to see the area from the water.

The Spirit of Buffalo Beer tasting sailing was as fun as a night as we expected. The weather turned out to be the perfect night. No wind, bright sun and calm seas. The beer tasting was very good. There were enough servers to fill your glass with cold beer. The beer guru spoke about the beer on the microphone and... More

Enjoyed the Buffalo waterfront on a two hour beer tasting evening cruise hosted by Flying Bison Brewery. Staff were all attentive and made the cruise comfortable and enjoyable. Beer samples were plentiful and had great fresh baked pretzels.

I found the attraction "The Spirit of Buffalo" while I was planning a trip to Buffalo and I was not disapointed! This is a great 2 hour discovery of the Buffalo Wharf and Port area and Lake Erie. Pleasant and competent staff accompany you on the sail. The Wednesday sail also includes a wine tasting which was very interesting. Had... More

Captain Rich & crew are top notch, made it a very enjoyable night for all! We are looking forward to returning for the Buffalo history tour cruise in the near future. It so... More

The tour guide made this tour worth it. He was very knowledgeable with fascinating information. Because of the rain the walk was muddy in spots. A pamphlet with photos and historical information would have been better than the photos in a binder passed around. I like to take something home with me to read.

Joe and the girls made the sail relaxing and fun. There were 14 in our group along with others. They encouraged help to raise the sails and I got to take the helm for a few minutes. It was a good sailing trip.
