Prohibition Cruise

Prohibition was a busy time for Buffalo's waterfront. With legal alcohol available just across the Niagara River in Canada, a short boat trip across the border could bring alcohol into Buffalo. In the way of that short trip were an increasing number of patrol boats on the lookout for smugglers. Join us for a cruise aboard the Miss Buffalo II and listen to stories of rum running and smuggling and enjoy the scenic views of Buffalo’s waterfront.

To complete the Prohibition Cruise experience, and celebrate the return of local distilleries, a local distillery will provide samples on each cruise: Lakeward Spirits on July 25, and Lockhouse Distillery on August 22.
