Spirit of Buffalo

I think this is lovely, however on a very hot day with no wind it can be hot because it doesn't move to quickly. It's a great evening, however.

I chartered the Spirit for a customer event and it was perfect. Every step of the way from planning to sailing the Spirit team was top notch and very professional. Our guests were surprised to see how wonderful Buffalo looks from a different perspective...the Water. Keep up the good work Spirit you make us proud!

We had a wonderful afternoon cruise around the canal side in Buffalo. It was a glorious day, we were given the opportunity to help raise the sails. There was food and drink on offer. The crew were great. Would recommend it to anyone!

First, know that we did not have the best weather on our particular day, so our experience could have easily ranked a 5 if we had actually gotten to use the sails. Although our day was rainfree it was very hot, humid and somehow there was absolutely no wind. So we motored out just beyond the breakwall in the Buffalo... More

We brought our nieces and nephews out on the Spirit of Buffalo for a sail. Beautiful boat that actually does sail and does not fake it. The crew does their best to keep the kiddos entertained. the adults in our party enjoyed the scenery very much. The children eventually found the captains quarters, below the deck and loved hanging out... More

A group of friends went on this cruise on Labor Day weekend. The experience was wonderful. The staff was very attentive. We purchased the dinner pkg. Dinner at the Pearl Street was OK. I felt there should have been more choices. All of he choices were very heavy. Could have gone for a nice chicken Ceasar salad. Overall a wonderful... More

Three family members and I took the 6PM cruise on a beautiful and hot summer evening. Ther were 30 some others on board, but there was plenty of room and everyone was full of fun. It was a perfect night for sailing, and the crew was experienced, friendly and fun loving as well. We had a very enjoyable evening. Thank... More

Came down to Canalside on a beautifully sunny Monday afternoon and decided to go for a sail on the Spirit of Buffalo. If you enjoy going out on the water sailing then this for you. It's not so much a tour with narration and a history lesson as it is a relaxing day on the water. Quite a sight when... More

I had a group over over 45 singles from our meet-up group we loved it. The crew couldn't have been nicer and the day was absolute perfection. We will be back!

Our family traveled to Buffalo on business but always love to do something fun on the water after business is over. After researching what was available on the days we would be traveling, we booked a cruise on the Spirit of Buffalo. The day before the cruise, we had the television on at the hotel, and lo and behold, they... More
