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.

Rich and his team do an amazing job. It’s an enjoyable sail, with opportunity to purchase drinks onboard, and even to help with the sails. Every seat on the ship is a good one.

Lots of fun. Would be nice if crew talked about what was around to look at. But crew was very personable and talkative if you talked to them. Belly of boat was cool. Very clean and new looking. All around very pleasant experience.

We did the Wine in the Winds sail and everything was great. The staff were friendly and attentive. The representative from Leonard Oaks winery did a great job with the tasting as well! A wonderful evening spent with family sailing our beautiful lake.

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.
