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.

Loved it. Smooth, first time on sailboat. Everyone very professional, friendly, courteous, went out of their way to accommodate. A different look at the city by water. Just wish someone on occasion could have pointed out the sights, landmarks, etc.

Came and did a sunset beer cruise with Spirit of Buffalo on a Tuesday. The brewers were the Lafayette Brewing Company, a place I did not even know existed! They are still quite limited in their distribution, aka only in the Hotel Lafayette- so it...More

Perfect weather and perfect sunset cruise. The wines we tasted were good, though a bit larger "taste" would have been appreciated 😉. The crew was professional, and offered opportunities for the passengers to participate in the sailing. Trip ended with a lovely nighttime view of...More
