Water Sports

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.

Before you dip your toe in, watch our Buffalo For Real TV webisode above, then consult the listings below for outfitters, charters and popular spots.

Buffalo’s legacy as one of our nation’s most important transportation and industrial centers rose from our impressive waterfront. No visit to the Queen City would be complete without a trip to our shores.

Canalside is the jewel in our crown. The result of over $300 million in new development, Canalside hosts over 1,000 annual events. Every summer, outdoor yoga, children’s games and Thursday at Canalside concerts take place along the district’s Central Wharf.

Each winter, throngs of visitors flock to the Ice at Canalside, a 35,000 square foot rink on the recreated Erie Canal that features, skating, curling, pond hockey and ice bikes. Across the street, LECOM Harborcenter attracts hockey players from around the world by hosting amateur and college tournaments at its two NHL sized rinks. And sports and food fanatics are flocking to the two-story (716) Food & Sport that features over 70 televisions, including a 38-foot tall screen for the big games.

Our waterfront is also home to America’s largest inland Naval park, the Buffalo and Erie County Naval & Military Park. The Erie Basin Marina features an observation tower with breathtaking views of Buffalo and Canada. The historic Buffalo Lighthouse welcomes you to the Buffalo River. And the nearby Outer Harbor features miles of bike trails and lakefront parks. If you like fishing, the bass, salmon and trout are biting throughout our inner and outer harbors. Rent a kayak or waterbike or take a cruise aboard the Queen City Ferry, the Spirit of Buffalo or Buffalo Harbor Cruises to see it all!

At 350 acres, Delaware Park was the largest of the three original parks and was a landscape that Olmsted and Vaux called a “country park”.

Although today’s park still offers much in the way of original features, many others have yet to be restored. These include Spire Head House (an exotic gazebo designed by Vaux), a quarry garden, bridle paths, and pedestrian pathways.

Delaware Park can also host Baseball, Basketball, Golf, and Tennis.

One of the first Frederick Law Olmsted-designed parks in Buffalo, the 350 acres of meadow, forest and lake serve as Buffalo’s “Central Park” featuring boating on Hoyt Lake by the Marcy Casino, Rose Garden, Japanese Gardens, and a golf course, and newly added horse-drawn carriage rides (Sunday only from 1pm – 5pm.) As the focal point of the Olmsted System, it contains many popular cultural institutions.

Olmsted had predicted that Delaware Park was destined to take a “distinguished position among the parks of the world.” Known as many Buffalonians’ favorite Olmsted park, it is also nationally recognized.

A public boat launch site, the marina is very convenient for weekend sailors.

An interesting, guided historical tour through America’s past. You will explore the historic Erie Canal Locks 67-71 constructed in 1838, view ruins from an early industrial age, and your guide will rock in the mid-1800’s, viewing stalactites, flowstone and other geological formations. You will also see artifacts left behind by the men who build the tunnel in the early days of the Erie Canal. Then you will ride in an underground boat. Visitors are awestruck as they take a ride that has been described as both “peaceful and eerie” as the boat glides through lifeless waters, illuminated only by small, sporadically placed electric lights.

For those who want to experience Western New York’s hidden gem, white water rafting on the mighty Cattaraugus, through Zoar Valley, is the perfect springtime activity. You’ll view rugged cliffs hundreds of feet high, waterfalls (both free falling and hidden by old growth stands of oak, hemlock and tulip), nesting bald eagles, and you’ll experience the finest white water west of the Adirondacks.

The season runs from Mid-March through May and the ten mile trip takes approximately 2 to 4 hours to complete. For those who might want a milder version, a 6 mile run on the lower section of the river, is available.
