Celebrate Summer with a bang on our annual fireworks cruises. Choose from our traditional Viewing Cruise or our 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 July 2nd or August 29th as we celebrate summer with a bang. Cruises depart from Long Wharf—our traditional Viewing Cruise features a DJ and dancing, while our Cocktail and Viewing Cruise also includes delicious stationary and passed hors d'oeuvres and dessert.
