It was a breezy night but the captain kept the boat inside the break wall so it wasn't too much of an issue. Nice staff. Bathrooms are rustic.

I would recommend this boat ride as a fun way to experience the water surrounding Buffalo. The crew is friendly and very accommodating. It is a relaxing and fun way to spend a few hours on the Buffalo waterways!

Very nice crew. There is a bar on the boat and is inexpensive. Had a very enjoyable and relaxing time on the water. View was beautiful. Great thing to do when visiting Canalside.

We took the late cruise and it was a beautiful night and a very calm cruise which was very relaxing. A little disappointed that they ran out of red wine as a result of the number of people on the cruise before us.

After returning from a trip to the South in August, I had an epiphany on the MoondanceCat: Buffalo and Lake Erie are clean, clear and beautiful! Clear blue sky, deep blue water and air so very pure and refreshing. Everyone on the boat was happy...More
