I thought this was remarkable and the scenic views of Buffalo's inner harbor was amazing. I went on a sunny Wednesday evening on a "Tap Takeover" cruise where one of Buffalo's local breweries tapped a few of their beers. There was live music, small spread of snacks like taco dip, fruit and vegatable trays etc.. Staff was courteous, attentive and... More

Recently, our family had the opportunity to take a 2.5 hour ride on the Miss Buffalo. I have been a life-long resident of Buffalo NY until recently. I was so happy to go to Canalside and take this ride to see the views of the Buffalo Harbor from the water's vantage point. Dear Miss Buffalo operators, I am sorry to... More

We took the harbor cruise on a sunny, Saturday. It was a lovely way to spend 2 hours. The boat leaves from the Erie Boat Basin area, and there was sufficient free parking. We purchased our tickets on-line and picked them up before the cruise at their convenient kiosk. The boat was full, but your view was never compromised. The... More

The weather could have been better when we did the sunset cruise. It was quite windy and the water a little choppy. But the water was calm in the Inner Harbor. The boat is a bit dated. But the view of the sunset was nice. The two hour cruise went fast.

This was the 2nd time we took this cruise, and enjoyed it as much as the first time; learning many different things each time. It's relaxing, enjoyable, and just th right length.

Without any doubt a 'Must Do' activity in Buffalo. The Harbor Cruise vessel Miss Buffalo docks right after the Naval Musuem and the Naval vessels there. The tour is must for visitors who are new to Buffalo and who are not aware of the history of the canal and Erie lake and in general the history of the area. The... More

They offer a historical tour but I love the sunset booze cruise! A two hour cruise on Lake Erie while sipping on a mixed drink with live music is always a good time! Get loose on the dance floor or sit back and take it all in! Its always a good time on Miss Buffalo!!!! Cash or credit is accepted... More

Buffalo was the wetern end of the Erie Canal in 1825. And we were about to bicycle the entire lenth of the 400 mile Erie Canalway Trail. from Buffalo to Albany. So we started off with this boat tour which took us along the Buffalo water routes and explained how the Erie Canal transformed Buffalo from a sleepy town to... More
