Any busy harbor is a dangerous place and Buffalo’s harbor has been no exception. Ships collided, boilers exploded, and fires and explosions were almost commonplace. Join us for a cruise aboard the Miss Buffalo and listen to the stories of many of Buffalo’s maritime disasters and enjoy the scenic views of Buffalo’s waterfront. This tour is being given in cooperation with the Buffalo Harbor Museum. The Buffalo Harbor Museum will have copies of their book “Fire and Water – Disasters on the Buffalo Harbor and the Surrounding Waterfront” available for sale for $25.00 (Cash and Check Only).
