Step aboard the Circle Line's Independence Day Spectacular — a 4th of July Fireworks Cruise that truly epitomizes the spirit of New York City. This isn't just another cruise; it's an immersive celebration of America's birthday, offering the absolute finest view of the fireworks show right in the heart of NYC!


As the historic Circle Line Vessel navigates along the Hudson River, around the glittering tip of Manhattan, you'll be in awe of the city that never sleeps. NYC's skyline — a dazzling array of world-renowned landmarks — unfolds before you. Witness the architectural majesty of the Empire State Building, the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, the poignant One World Trade Center, and the timeless Statue of Liberty. Ensure your camera is at the ready, for these are moments you'll want to capture and treasure forever!

As the cityscape parades by, indulge some traditional American bites as apple pie. Savor the sizzling flavors of classic 4th of July favorites like juicy hamburgers, succulent fried chicken, irresistible hot dogs, and homestyle mac 'n cheese. Quench your thirst with the unlimited beer, wine, and soda selection. Looking for something a bit stronger? Fear not, for spirits and cocktails are available for purchase to add a little extra sparkle to your evening.

But the grand finale is yet to come. As the sun sets and stars begin to twinkle, prepare for a spectacular fireworks display on the East River. This year the fireworks are returning to the East Side between 34th and 50th street across Long Island City, and we can promise you will enjoy a front-row seat to one of the world's best fireworks shows.

For an uninterrupted 40 minutes, the sky will dance with dazzling hues, the sparkling colors brilliantly mirrored in the waters below. There's simply no better place to soak in the magic and marvel of the 4th of July fireworks in NYC than from the Circle Line fireworks cruise.

So come, revel in the glory of the red, white, and blue! It's time to eat, drink, and rejoice in the spirit of Independence Day. Secure your spot on our Circle Line's 4th of July Fireworks Cruise today and create memories that will last a lifetime. Let's celebrate America's birthday in true New York style!

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
