Fireworks Cruises  

Book Your Cruise

Summer goes out with a bang on our annual fireworks cruises. Choose from our traditional Viewing Cruise or our new Cocktail and Viewing Cruise. 


A Booming Summer

Fireworks are even more spectacular when their bursts are reflected in the shimmering waters of Boston Harbor. Sail with us on August 31st as we celebrate the end of summer with a bang. Cruise departs from Long Wharf—our traditional Viewing Cruise features a DJ and dancing, while our Cocktail and Viewing Cruise also includes a spread worthy of a Boston Brahmin.


Fireworks With a Side of the Works

The end of summer is easier to take with a cruise like this. Snack on a delicious selection of passed hors d'oeuvres, cheeses and charcuterie favorites, expertly paired with refreshing summer cocktails and local brews as you dance the night away. And, if you’ve got any room left, dessert is sure to put a sweet ending on your evening as you witness the grand finale illuminating the Boston Skyline. Boom.
