Programma

We depart the dock at 5:30pm and set sail immediately. Join my crew and hoist a sail or head straight to the bar - your choice. Feast on an all-you-can-eat buffet of tasty American BBQ fare. You will cruise past the Brooklyn Bridge, Governors Island, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty up the Hudson River to the viewing area reserved only for large ships. Your captain will get in position and order the crew to "strike" (lower) our sails to guarantee the best possible views. As night falls the harbor lights will take your breath away just as the fireworks begin against the most famous skyline in the world.

We will watch 40,000+ shells explode at rate of more than 1,500 per minute with fireworks reaching heights of 1,000 feet in the air, from the serene vantage point of one of America's most beautiful & historic tall ships.

When the smoke clears, each captains will sound their foghorns all across the harbor to signal the end of the festivities. You will depart with memories to cherish for the rest of your life. We anticipate disembarking shortly after 10:00 pm.

Your host will be me. I have offered Fireworks sails since 2001; I take real pride in offering an intimate, casual alternative for enjoying the once-in-a-lifetime NYC Macy's Fireworks Spectacular here in NY harbor. You will avoid the intense crowds of larger boats or land-based viewing options.

I am a born and bred NYer & first began volunteering aboard an historic sailboat in NY Harbor over 30 years ago. I hold a USCG issued 100-ton captain's licenses; I have been sharing my love of sailing large vintage schooners under the majestic gaze of the Statue of Liberty and the NY Skyline with locals and visitors to NY for the past 19 years. My largest boat, the CLIPPER CITY, is a 158' replica of a pre-Civil War Era boat built in 1854; she sailed until 1892, and was the fastest and largest ship of her day.

Luogo

Sail by the Statue of Liberty, then see the awe-inspiring Macy's July 4th fireworks light up the sky over the East River. You can’t get any closer to the action with the massive Clipper City Tall Ship as your front row seat to the festivities.

Watch 40,000+ shells explode at more than 1,500 per minute with fireworks reaching heights of 1,000 feet in the air, from the serene vantage point of one of America's most beautiful & historic tall ships.

I cannot recommend this experience enough!! Though the cruise may seem like a long time (you depart around 5pm, and the fireworks aren't until 9:30-10pm), the entire crew makes it worth while. You set sail and sail down the East river to lower Manhattan getting breath taking views of the city and bridges. Then you get taken by Lady liberty herself. She was magnificent. The crew hoists the sails (which you can help with), and the boat is now sailing. Something that we got to see that I've never gotten to see on any 4th of July cruise before, were the Macy's barges being pushed into/up the river to the staging area for the show. This was a really great experience. After a bit you sail back up the East River to get in position for the show. All the while the crew is serving up fantastic food; Starting with appetizers that you can either help yourself to, or that they will walk around and bring to you. Then a main course is served (Buffet style). Both are absolutely amazing! Seriously, high praise to the chef!! The food hits all the marks for a 4th of July party. Finally, once you are in position and waiting for the fireworks to start, the crew serves up a perfect sweet, light, and balanced dessert. Oh, did I mention there is a bar with amazingly skilled and friendly bar tenders?? They'll make you whatever you need to quench your thirst. And the best part? All of this is included in the experience!! Our captain nuzzled us right up to the front of all the vessels for the fireworks. We got to see the sunset over the city, and then it was show time. The fireworks were beyond amazing. (I have to admit I cried a little; it was good to be back in NYC after being away for so long). Then they took us back to the pier where we disembarked and made our way home. I felt completely safe the entire time, and could not wait to tell all of our friends and family and anyone else we met about our experience! 10/10 would recommend. We will be back next year for this amazing experience. One thing I noticed and is worth mentioning. As we looked around at a lot of the other vessels idling to watch the fireworks, most of them had two or three decks for their guests to view the show from, but not all of their guests could be on the top deck (open air), so not everyone had an unobstructed view. On this ship, they drop the sail as you head back up the East River for the show, and everyone on the ship has a great, open air, unobstructed view. This is an incredible. A huge thank you and shout out to the amazing crew of City Clipper!! Thank you!
