July 4th Fireworks Cruise

Independence Day

July 4th or Independence Day is a federal holiday in the US on which the nation celebrates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. This holiday is taken very seriously and you will find decorations, parties, and fireworks throughout every major city. New York City is no exception with an amazing annual firework display hosted by Macy’s. Cruises have become far more popular and are, for many, the preferred alternative to standing in the streets lined with thousands of people.

Independence Day / 4th of July – 5 Hour Dinner Cruise

Dinner cruises are becoming increasingly popular in NYC, and are selling out faster than ever. With amazing views of the city, good food and an open bar you can understand why – especially for events like Independence Day. We highly recommend this July 4th, 5-hour dinner cruise, as it offers the best vantage point for the Macy’s fireworks display which is the heart and center of the celebrations. Whether you are looking for a romantic evening or a social one with your friends, this cruise offers you the ultimate way to celebrate July 4th.

Happy Birthday America

Celebrate America’s Independence Day with a few spectacular hours on the water! Reserve a seat in the front row so you can enjoy the famous Macy’s fireworks, take in the breathtaking view of the George Washington Bridge lit up in its holiday splendor. For the remainder of the time you can pleasure your senses with the aromas of an exclusive five-course meal. After a few drinks from the premium open bar, the DJ might even coax you onto the dance floor with his tunes. The images of the sparkling & flashing New York City skyline reflecting off of the calm waters that surround your boat, will make sure of the fact that you spend July 4th in a truly special way – one that will linger in your memory long after your trip is over.
