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.

My girls had fun. The face painting was really just a mustache before it started. The main pirate was very funny and adapted well to kids' comments. Adults had the opportunity to buy libations during the sail. :)

My wife and I had a wonderful time. The crew was very friendly and informative. They spent time with us individually and answered all our questions. The wines we tasted were excellent.

My husband, 12-year-old son and I went on the 2 hour cruise and it was very nice. The ship is really cool and the staff is really nice. They even engaged my son by letting him pull the sails up and down, which he enjoyed....More

We boarded the Spirit of Buffalo on a afternoon sunset cruise. The classic sailing vessel is beautiful and comfortable. The crew was amazing, friendly, and professional. After a brief introduction, we left the dock and raised the sails. It's an awesome experience to move quickly...More

A great way to spend a few hours seeing Buffalo from the water. Knowledgeable and engaged captain with a friendly and capable crew. The ship is beautiful and the sailing is good fun for young and old alike. We highly recommend.
