Went down the Buffalo river, which 10 years ago you wouldn't dare try to navigate for fear of growing a third eye from pollution. But in the last decade the river and the area has cleaned up.

A friend and I went on a sunset ride and it was a great time! The crew were friendly and personable. There was a bar service and we were served wine! The ride was well worth it and we would do it again!

We did the Craft Beer Sunset Sail the afternoon we landed in Buffalo. Crew could not have been nicer or more knowledgeable about the city. Best two hours we spent in the city!

Great trip, but it would have been nice for crew and/or captain to share the history of the boat and the Buffalo/Lake Erie area to the entire boat as we sailed. All were very knowledgeable one on one. Why not use the microphone so everyone can benefit?
