Sail back in time aboard the schooner Spirit of Buffalo. Rediscover old world sailing on a classic 73 foot coastal sailing vessel.Join the crew and hoist the sails, or just sit back, relax and take in the experience. Revel in the moment as our magnificent red sails capture the wind and the Spirit sails off to a place time forgot.

This was a very interesting adventure. They had a bar and the crew was entertaining. It was a windy day which made it that much more interesting. If you have never been on a sailboat, this one is for you.

The Buffalo waterfront has made a great resurgence in the last few years. The boat cruises are a great way to experience the history of the water and a view of the city.

Who doesn't love pirate ships? We had a beautiful afternoon on the water. Pro Tip: Don't wear flowy shirts or dresses on this ship unless you want all of your sailing partners seeing what you have underneath 😵

My step-daughter was visiting from Toronto so my wife and I wanted to take her on a sailing boat. It was great. The crew was friendly and involved her in hoisting up the sails. I would highly recommend it. Great fun!
