Public Sails

Sail back in time aboard the Spirit of Buffalo and discover traditional sailing on a classic 73-ft. topsail schooner. 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. Explore our Buffalo, NY public cruises below!

We are all about discovering new Spirits aboard the Spirit of Buffalo and broadening our horizons.  One of the best ways to do that is to delve into our wonderful selection of featured Whiskeys from our local distributor.  Enjoy an evening on the water in the wind with your favorite whisky.  This two hour sail overlooking the beautiful waterfront will include a keepsake cocktail plate of our City’s Flagship along with our favorite hor dourves and 3 tastings of our featured whiskeys of the week. Beer, wine and mixed drinks are available for purchase.
