This beautiful schooner with its magnificent red sails is available for day and evening sails on Lake Erie, sunset sails, craft brew cruises, wine in the wind sails, children’s pirate adventures, and educational excursions. Join the crew and hoist the red sails, or sit back, relax and see the city in a new (old?) way.

Ship-Shape Crew on the Spirit of Buffalo.

"A sunny hot day with little wind didn’t stop the Spirit of Buffalo crew from making us all at home on our voyage. Wonderful makeup sail with local friends when we were rained out with out-of-town guests."
