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.

A nice smooth ride on a beautiful Buffalo summer day, parked right along side of the launch area, had a great view on a net between the twin pontoon catamaran sailboat ,we were able to stretch out and have a drink from the bar (extra charge) but not unreasonably priced while listening to some nice music , the crew was...

Went on this with a corporate group of about 40, so I can't comment on how the individual experience would be, but I would definitely recommend it for individuals or family. Our trip was just about 2 hours, and we were under sail for most of it. Started off pretty choppy then smoothed out beautifully, You can stay "inside" where... More

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 and uplifted. After the sweat and haze of the South in the summertime, this had... More

I've been on the Moondance a few times now and it's always a great time. Obviously a lot has to do with the weather, but given mother nature cooperates it's a smooth sail with beautiful views of the city and harbors. There is plenty of room to walk around the boat. Each time I went it was with a large... More

Our Lions Club has held an annual cruise on the cat for the last three years. It keeps getting better. We have been fortunate the weather has been fantastic the last two, and only a little rain on our first. The crew are a good bunch of guys, there is an on board bar, you can bring your own snacks...

Don't miss the opportunity to forget your troubles and cares by sailing on Moondance. The crew made the experience extra enjoyable, and I thank and commend them for a wonderful evening. I expected a windy ride, but last night's excursion was smooth sailing. You can bring food onboard, and small bags of chips and pretzels, along with wine and beer,... More

Took a wonderful ride on the Moondance Cruise. Peaceful, serene, scenic. You leave wanting more! Its a great price for views of Buffalo that you don't get to see often (if you're a landlubber like me). Peter and his crew are professional and friendly. They try to accommodate all requests. A very enjoyable time. Don't miss it!
