Bought this as a gift for my sister when visiting NYC and she absolutely loved it.
Best view you could possibly get of the fireworks and the upgrade to include drinks and food is definitely worth it!
The tour was great with amazing fire show. Only comment is they could cut down the hours
It was an excellent tour. We would highly recommend to anyone. Very relaxing, fun and a beautiful evening.
It wa amazing. We had a great time best view to watch fireworks. Our boat was first up, no one between us and the fire works. Great job by our captain. I would do this again for sure.
Great! The ship adjusted to the best viewing location to match the change in barge positions.
It was a great view to watch the fireworks, great choice of food and drinks and plenty of seats on the boat
This tour was amazing! If you are even in New York City for the 4th of July and have an opportunity to do this you definitely should. Best way to see the fireworks in New York City. We boarded at 4:30 and left the dock about 5:15. We had a nice cruise around the harbor until about 6:30. At 6:30 we were at the designated position to see the fireworks. Since the fireworks were not until 9:30 I wondered how it would be to just sit there for 3 hours but with the music and meeting/talking to some new people the time went by rather fast. Around 9:00 I looked back and realized why we had gotten to our position so early. Behind us were hundreds of boats and we were the first ones closest to the barge where the fireworks were being set off from. At 9:30 we literally had a front row seat to some of the most spectacular fireworks I have ever seen. Towards the end of the show you could since the captain repositioning the ship to head back to the dock. As soon as the show was over the captain zoomed back to the dock and we avoided all other boat traffic. We were back to the dock in 15 minutes with many great pictures and memories of the night to share.
Being that close to where the fireworks were let off took the experience to a whole different level.
I had a wonderful experience from the time I arrived and waited in line to board until the time it was over. The boat was not overly packed and there was plenty of seating for those who wanted to sit. The food was good and not as expensive as I thought it would be. Additionally they provide a DJ on the upper deck however if you are not interested you may go to the lower deck and not be bothered. It truly was fantastic!! I will be taking this cruise again next year if I am in the city! It was very nice to be completely unaware of how many people were watching the fireworks! Additionally the tour guide was very informative. All of the staff was very pleasant and answered all questions.
Very nice trip. Sat on the top deck in back. Saw New Jersey fireworks and New York's. Because of previous reviews, we ate before going out. The only food we saw other people have was nachos and hot dogs, don't know if there was anything else. The Intrepid is right next to this dock, so you can see that if you wish. Would take this trip again, very relaxing.
fantastic, nothing like bringing in July 4th in style boat = great, position in the water amazing I will be back :)
we had a wonderful time! the staff was very nice, the DJ very funny and his music amazing! We will definitely recomend it to friends! the way the ship was situated gave us a fabulous view of the show. The only not too good thing, were the lines to get refreshments, but that really did not take away from the good time. THANK YOU!
Amazing view of the fireworks and such a fun way to spend an evening. Sit outside at the back of the boat as close to the rail as possible. Strongly recommend you BYOB and snax because the line-up is really long. Took over an hour waiting in line to get served.
Absolutely the best fourth of July my family has ever had. The view was spectacular! We were right up on the front lines just several hundred feet from the first Macy's barge. I got the most vivid pictures of the fireworks display. I would definitely recommend this event for all to see, however, I have reservations about saying this because I want to go again next year and I feel the crowds will be even larger, but there are many boats available. The only negative point I can mention is that the food available on the boat was limited and some of the selections were sold out before we even got a chance to purchase and we were one of the first groups on the boat. Remember you usually get on the water by 730 pm and the fireworks don't start until around 920 pm so you will have plenty of time to take in the sites prior to the main event. I will be returning with my family next year for another great Fourth of July in the BIG APPLE on the Hudson!
If you are ever in New York on the fourth of July this is a must, just make sure you get there reasonably early at least 1 and a half ours before they are due to leave to avoid the wait in line don't get me wrong the line moved fast but they can be very long with the added heat and humidity make sure you have water while waiting in line. But the experience was amazing, the people, the fireworks and the atmosphere. Make sure you get a bite to eat before you are on as there is not much in the way of meals and find yourself a prime position on top deck from the beginning otherwise you will be kicking yourself.
