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, Niagara River, Black Rock Locks and the Black Rock canal. You will cruise under 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 renowned architects, Frank Lloyd Wright.

And yes, we will answer all of those questions …

*The Locks (11am ONLY) are still and always will be weather and water level dependent.
