Spirit of Buffalo Pirate cruise

We took the Saturday Pirate boat ride. Really fun for kids 10 and under I'd say. Relaxing and scenic views of Buffalo from the water for the adults. I definitely recommend!

We took the sunset cruise. It was so much fun. The Buffalo skyline was beautiful. The young crew members were very mature and friendly. We would do it again but try for the Wednesday wine cruise.

We did the Wine in the Wind trip on Wednesday night and it was amazing! What a great view of the city of Buffalo, my hometown. Unfortunately the clouds didn't allow for a great sunset, but we still had a great time. The staff was very friendly, and the gentlemen providing the wine samples were very knowledgeable. Next trip home... More

Making reservations on line made the experience fast, easy and worry free. Staff was friendly and obviously enjoyed their jobs. Weather was perfect and the sail wonderful. We will be doing this again this summer and may make it a yearly event. My wife loves the water and she was in ecstasy the entire two hours!

Kids loved the Pirate Cruise. Crew was excellent with the kids, they kept the kids interested and encouraged them to be a part of their crew. We will def do this cruise again. They can't stop talking about the cruise and talking pirate. 😀

Sailed today and absolutely loved it!! What an experience! The crew was friendly, helpful and fun. My children (ages 5 and 3) helped pull the sails up. Music played... We had a few drinks... Totally relaxing and can't wait to sail again! Worth every penny.

We decided to take the sunset boatride. We were not disappointed! The crew as friendly and informative. It was a warm day but cooled significantly as we left port. The riders were encouraged to help lift the sails. It was interesting to see how the sails were manipulated to make use of the wind. The 2 hours went quickly and... More

It was the last night in the States for my exchange student from Italy. I decided to take him to the fireworks at Canalside and wanted to get there early, but what would we do? I discovered Spirit of Buffalo. The price of only $32 for the sunset cruise was reasonable. The crew was friendly. Water and wine were available... More

Pleasantly surprised to learn that there were seats available on the 4th of July and attended with three friends. Seating was basic bench arrangements, but comfortable. Crew was professional, efficient, and personable. Several members made it a point to mingle with passengers while taking in nice views of the city. Beer and wine delivered by crew members, but there is... More
