On a Ship 

Aboard a July 4th Fireworks Cruise on Florida’s Gulf Coast

Celebrate the Fourth a little differently this year by enjoying the views from the water. July 4th cruises depart from Tampa and Clearwater, and there are VIP options for an extra special Independence Day. All aboard! The Fourth of July cruises tend to sell out quickly each year, so get your tickets while you can.

The Fourth of July Fireworks cruises include an open bar, upscale American-style buffet, DJ entertainment, and a stellar fireworks performance choreographed to your favorite patriotic music. Cruises depart rain or shine but fireworks displays are weather permitting.
