We took our 3 boys 7, 5, and 3 on the Pirate Cruise and it was amazing!!!!! The crew did a super job of entertaining the children the entire time with fun pirate activities, All of our boys were engaged and had a lot of fun. The cruise was wonderful for the adults too, as we had a beautiful view of downtown and could enjoy being out on the water while the children were entertained,

The Spirit of Buffalo is a marvelous trip and the crew provided informative information when we sailed away. The leisurely sail allows for time to enjoy the sights. Hospitality includes crew offering drinks for purchase. Don't miss a trip down lower deck to see captain's quarters and memorabilia.
If you have kids, the crew will be very accommodating to those wanting to help hoist a sail!

do not miis a trip to this architectural treasure. Tough city parking but worth the walk. May be boring for kids and a great little gift shop on site. History of the place is fascinating and well worth the admission.

What a wonderful trip we had aboard the beautiful sailboat, "Spirit of Buffalo." We sailed during the late evening of what was probably the only stormy day we had in Buffalo this summer. The poor weather subsided and we had a beautiful nighttime cruise. Everyone associated with this boat does their best to be sure that you are happy!
It is something our family hopes to do again next summer. I took a ton of beautiful photos which will make my memories even stronger!

My husband and I took the Spirit of Buffalo 2-hour sail in July 2012 with a group outing, and I have to say it was one of the highlights of our summer! Aside from the fact it was a beautiful night (cruise went from 6-8pm), with calm, sunny weather, everything else seemed just as tranquil and exquisite! The cruise is run as a family business and crew members were all very nice and outgoing - and most attentive to the needs of passengers. There was a cash bar and pizza and snacks for our trip (may very with how you book), but who needed food when you were gliding along sparkling waters, taking in the vibrantly-colored shorelines of both the US and Canada! The crew allow passengers to help raise and lower the sails (it's harder than you think!) and there is seating along both sides of the ship - which is, according to their website, "a classic 73 foot topsail schooner" (http://spiritofbuffalo.com/)
We will definitely go back and bring our girls with us next time!
You really feel relaxed and free from all worries mon aboard the Spirit of Buffalo!
