Was ok. The wine should have wine should have been filled alittle higher in those small plastic cups. I would have liked a nice cracker instead of old crunchy bread.

Sailing on the Spirit of Buffalo was an experience that I hoped would never end. We sailed the Sunset/Moonlight sail, and it was fantastic. The crew was young, energetic, and very experienced and well trained. It was obvious that they all love what they do, and are polite and well spoken. The night was beautiful.... full moon, and just enough... More

We went out for the craft beer cruise...the staff was very slow with getting samples out to people. The captain of the boat also took us out on very choppy waters (3 guests ended up vomiting over the edge of the boat). He should have stayed inside the break wall where the calm water was. We sampled 4 beers, which... More

My wife and I went sailing on the Spirit of Buffalo the first year it opened as part of our wedding anniversary celebration. We enjoyed it so much that we have returned every year since. Not only is the vessel impressive, so are the family and staff that runs the business. This summer we also went on their history tour... More

Spirit of Buffalo is a sailboat that can hold maybe 25 people comfortably. Depending on the winds and weather, it sails in different areas of the lake. The sailboat left on time and returned a little later than anticipated, but it was such a welcome bonus as you don't want it to end! I have never been on a sailboat... More

We love going on the boat. We have increased the number in the group each year. Waiting for you guys to get Pinot Grigio as a white wine choice! Just can't drink Chardonnay! The kids on the boat are always polite and friendly. We always ask one of them to take the group shot and this year the young lady... More
