Enjoyed this sailing experience along Buffalo's shore of Lake Erie. The captain was great. The captain even diffused a situation with a crying 3 year old (Really it was past the boy's bedtime!). Saw the sun set and viewed some fire works. Gave it 4 stars because I wish it lasted longer!

This is at the top of my list for a summer activity in buffalo!!!! Absolutely beautiful / relaxing and the staff is a joy to sail with- over the last several years we have sailed on this excursion a half dozen times- never to disappoint ! Would highly recommend day trip/ sunset cruise and wine in the wind- all super!

We took part in the dinner and a cruise option as part of a Father's Day celebration. The sail on Lake Erie was perfect! Gorgeous weather, great sail on a classic schooner...The captain was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. She was able to answer any questions we had and they do also offer a historical tour as well, but this... More

Sailing aboard the Spirit of Buffalo is like meditation on the water, pure goodness and refreshing. I would wholeheartedly recommend this sail for individuals and couples and families. The hosts are Captains Kate and Rich, along with their cheerful and intelligent crew members. Very good value for the money and the music selection was upbeat and subdued at the same... More

We were running too late to get to the location due to a slow restaurant service nearby, but we called to let them know we were running late and they said they did not have reservations for us. This is a little astonishing, considering I called weeks beforehand and we were the first to book for that date. With 6... More

Very clean, beautiful ship.....very personable crew, attentive and informative. Unfortunately there wasn't much wind on the the lake this day but the cruise was still very relaxing and beautiful. For almost 2 hours we would have enjoyed a little... More

All of my friends and family loved Thursday night. My friend's father, in from Vancouver, was impressed with our beautiful waterfront. The sunset cruise showed the city so well. And, although this is definitely a showcase for Buffalo, it had a comfortable feeling. Not a pre-packaged excursion. Such a beautiful ship! So relaxing. Great crew! Welcoming, attentive and informative. We... More

On June 16, 2014 our organization held its seasonal get-together before the summer. Members brought family & friends & everyone had nothing but a great time. The weather & winds were perfect for us & those among us who'd never been on a sailboat before were relaxed & comfortable. We had it catered & the food was just right. I... More

As soon as I saw the Spirit Of Buffalo I knew I just wanted to sail on her. I was very fortunate that she was sailing on my time in Buffalo and I got aboard on an afternoon sail with about 10 other passengers. It was truly wonderful, the staff were so courteous and it was so calm being out... More
