A tour like you've never seen in Western New York - on a floating tiki hut.

Buffalo Tiki Tours hasn't officially opened, but the popularity over Buffalo's first floating tiki hut tour is rapidly growing.  

With opening day just around the corner business partners Mike Bartolotta and Craig Schultz say business is already 70% sold out. 

It was an idea that started on vacation in Florida and traveled all the way back to Upstate New York. The co-owners saw a floating tiki hut go by and the rest is history, so to speak.

"This is what Buffalo needs, a vacation in our backyards," Schultz said. 

"We can't do anything about the snow, but we can share our love of vacationing with the rest of the community. What better way to do it than on a tiki hut?," Bartollota continued. 

So, how does it work?

The boat holds six people at a time, at $30 a person. Make a reservation, bring your own food and drinks, then relax and set sail on the waterfront - let the captain do the rest.
