Have you heard of the Erie Canal? Do you know what the Emerald Channel is? Do you know the folklore of Donnelly’s wall? How about Colonel Ward?

The only way to see Buffalo and truly learn about her past, present, and future is aboard one of our sightseeing cruises. Your tour begins on the Buffalo River across from the original lighthouse, built in 1833, and continues on through Lake Erie and the Black Rock canal. You will take in the history of the Peace Bridge, one of the busiest border crossings in the world, pass by one of the oldest Yacht Clubs in the country and a boat house designed by one of the most world recognized architects, Frank Lloyd Wright.

And yes, we will answer all of those questions …

This cruise does NOT go through the Black Rock Lock!
