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.

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.
