Fireworks from Your Boat

Watching spectacular fireworks from your boat makes any display more brilliant. We know where the best spots are all season!

Call to confirm date and time of all listed events and check current charts before you set out. Leave plenty of time to arrive at a viewing location early enough to ensure a good spot to anchor. Keep clear of any U.S. Coast Guard designated security/safety zones. As you’ll be enjoying these displays after the sun goes down, be sure you are comfortable operating your vessel at night, and keep a keen eye out for other boaters.
