Spirit of Buffalo and Buffalo River History Tours announced they are launching Big Kahuna Tiki Tours, a tiki tour boat docked at Canalside. The boat is the latest to be added to the fleet of Buffalo River History Tours and will carry passengers on daily fun-filled 90 or 60-minute tours on the Buffalo River, Buffalo Harbor and Lake Erie with Caribbean style music and drinks while maintaining social distancing rules.
“The addition of the Big Kahuna will give people a much-needed opportunity to get out on the water, have some fun and enjoy Buffalo’s beautiful waterfront,” said Captain Rich Hilliman, Owner/Operator Buffalo River History Tours/Big Kahuna Tiki Tours. “The Big Kahuna will have cruises for adults and separate family friendly tours. Our goal is to erase some of the stress people have been feeling and replace it with a smile.”
Big Kahuna Tiki Tours will offer Caribbean style drinks as well as beer and wine. Passengers age 21 and over should bring their ID. The Big Kahuna is also equipped with a bathroom. Passengers will be welcomed aboard starting Friday, July 10 to take a tiki cruise, listen to some tropical music, relax on the water and enjoy the outdoors in a safe controlled setting.
Big Kahuna is a 48-passenger vessel during normal operations, but due to Covid-19, operators are required to reduce to half capacity (24). Buffalo River History Torus / Big Kahuna Tiki Tours has filed a safety plan with New York State and will be requiring masks for boarding, disembarking, moving about the vessel as well as any time within six feet of other passengers. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout each trip. A thorough cleaning of surfaces will be performed after each trip, as well as while underway.
Big Kahuna Tiki Tours will be available 7 days a week. There will be a daily one-hour afternoon Family Tiki Cruise with a ticket price of $16 for adults and $10 for children. The adult Tiki Harbor Cruise will be 90 minutes long and cost $23 per (21+) adult. Book online at bigkahunatikitours.com or by calling 716-796-4556. Big Kahuna is also available for groups as well as charters.
