They spoke with WIVB-TV about their opening...


Tours were scheduled to start back in May but were delayed because of the coronavirus.  The management has been busy putting several measures in place to keep folks safe from Covid19.

“Well, this year, we’ve changed things around a little bit as you can expect, we’ve lowered our capacity to make it more comfortable and safe, we’ve established social distancing markers and signage, standard housekeeping we’ve removed half of our tables from both decks,” said Ryan Hayhurst president of buffalo harbor cruises.

Hayhurst says, they’ve also increased sanitation measures, the staff will be wearing masks the whole time, and management asks that customers have their own face masks ready.

“So our capacity is 185, we cut it down to 80 per cruise right now,” said Lisa Ellen Cooper general manager. “But, like I said, with that dance floor going up the middle of the boat, it’s going to be a little tough on that one.”

The operators of Buffalo Harbor Cruises also say they’re offering free sightseeing tours to first responders and front line workers.

This is a very relaxing and enjoyable excursion.  I can remember taking both the family on the Miss Buffalo, even the kids enjoyed it as well as enjoying the popular evening cruises.
