In 1971, the Hayhurst family bought a small passenger boat and named her the Miss Buffalo … the rest is history!

We are proud to have been an important part of so many stories, experiences and events out on the great waterways of Buffalo!  For 49 years, we have been able to show you the best of Buffalo from a sailor’s point of view and we hope to add you to our manifest when we welcome you aboard soon!

Miss Buffalo boat tour

Miss Buffalo is a boat ride for the entire family. We enjoyed the cruise especially the narrator. We learned a lot of the history of Buffalo and saw some amazing sights! We would recommend this cruise for anyone that would love to see the gorgeous Buffalo Harbor!

Very Informative!

We had a very large group for a high school reunion, many were from out of town. Everyone really thought this was a great idea to get everyone outside in the nature to see our beautiful city from the water view and how it has evolved. We learned a lot from the tour guide.

Great time

Lovely cruise on Black Rock River and Buffalo Harbor. Ample seating and nearly full. Enjoyed several beverages and was very happy they didn't rip me off on the prices of drinks and snacks. Traveled w/ my wife and 2 grand kids. Very nice!

Miss Buffalo Cruise

We had several friends with us and everyone had a good time. The tour director and staff were friendly and informative. We would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone as there is ample seating, tables if you wish, beverages (well drinks also) and shade if you prefer.

Thumbs-up from a Buffalo native!

I've been on the tour a few times over the years and it never gets old. The views were wonderful and the tour guide combined interesting information about the city's history, local nature/species, new shoreline development and more in his talk.

This is my review

The trip was simply terrific. The narrator, Marla, was clearly a proud "Buffalonian". Her facts mixed with humor was wonderful. The boat as clean and the staff very friendly. The bartender was a friendly young man that was very focused on quick service. Truly loved our relaxing trip on your fine vessel. Just the right length of time for an afternoon cruise.
