I had the chance to take my kids on the Spirit of Buffalo Pirate Cruise -- and what an experience.

Tickets are $25 for adults, and $20 for kids to take a 90 minute sail from Canalside, pirate style.

The ship's crew was fun and engaging -- the children are seated on one side of the baot, while the parents are seated separately (and mom and dad -- you can get a cold one from the bar too if you like).

It was 100% worth the price -- my kids had a blast, and I got to chill out on a gorgeous day on the water. Find out more here.
