The Black Pearl was seen last week at the Lewiston docks as she made her maiden voyage on the Lower Niagara River.
Working in conjunction with the Historical Association of Lewiston to provide passengers a historical interpretive tour, guests will enjoy a one-hour cruise that will sail by such landmarks as Tryon's Folly, Glen Carin, Brock's Monument and the famous gully at Artpark, which was the site of the first European settlement in Western New York in 1720.
