On the Waterfront

Situated between two Great Lakes, positioned at the Niagara River and enmeshed within a network of streams, rivers and canals, Buffalo Niagara’s most scenic vistas are just begging to be explored by canoe, sailboat, jet boat, jet ski and watercraft of every ilk.

Try your hand at sailing with the help of local sailing schools and generous Great Lake breezes. Paddle along the historic Erie Canal. Fly over waves on a jet ski in the Upper Niagara River. Pick a creek and float through the breathtaking scenery of Western New York. Go fishing for a trophy bass. Or let an expert take you on a tour through the Class V rapids and spiraling whirlpools of the Niagara Gorge.
