THE HISTORY OF
BUFFALO HARBOR CRUISES


HOW IT ALL BEGAN

In 1971 a small passenger boat was bought and named the “Miss Buffalo”… the rest is history. As the waterfront began to develop and prosper, so did demand for the Miss Buffalo.

As demand increased, 1981 saw the addition of the “Miss Buffalo II” and public cruises such as sightseeing and party cruises were added to our schedule. By 1987, as with other waterfront cities, Buffalo’s focus was squarely on improving access to its most precious resource, water.

For over 40 years a hands-on approach and a wide variety of services and products have enabled our company to thrive in a seasonal business. Become a part of the success by booking a cruise with W.N.Y.’s premier waterfront entertainment company…
Buffalo Harbor Cruises.
