Uncle Sam Boat Tours provides two ways for you to get out on the river to enjoy the display up close. You can either purchase tickets for the regularly scheduled Dinner Cruise which departs at 7 pm and stays out until the fireworks are over, or board any of our other vessels departing between 8:00 and 8:30 pm strictly to enjoy the display.
The Fireworks Dinner Cruise features live entertainment, buffet dinner, cash bar and instead of returning to port at 9:30 pm as usual, it will remain on the river close to Heart Island for the display which starts at dusk (typically 9:30 pm).
The Fireworks Cruise features a concession with full bar and snack items all available on a cash basis with departures starting at 8:00 pm. Boats are boarded one by one from the same dock. As soon as one boat has been loaded and released, the next boat will arrive, board guests and depart. We only sell the seats on our open top decks, so no matter where you are in line, or what boat you board, you are GUARANTEED a seat on our unobstructed top decks!
