Cruise Aboard Captree’s Finest Boats

Jones Beach Fireworks



Join us for a fun filled scenic cruise to see the  Fireworks Spectacular. 

Every year, thousands of people beat the traffic and enjoy a relaxing night on the Great South Bay aboard one of the fleets 20 boats.  Each boat is US Coast Guard inspected & certified and carries anywhere from 40 to 175 passengers.   

Sailing at 7 PM, the evening kicks off with a calm, slow scenic cruise to Jones Beach. After dark and anchored up, the night culminates with the Fireworks Spectacular and winds down with a slow cruise back to Captree State Park.

1:  Where do we sail from?

Ans: The boats sail from Captree State Park (East end of Ocean Pkwy, off of the Robert Moses Causway).  Parking is plentiful and close to the boats.

 2:  What time does the boat depart and then return again?

Ans:  Since there are 20 boats sailing, departure times are spaced between 6:30 and 7 PM.  Upon purchasing your tickets, you’ll get a boat specific boarding pass.  This will have the sailing time and contact phone number.  All the boats return between 11:30 and Midnight. 

3:  What time should I be there?

Ans:  Plan on being in the park by 6 P.M.  and give yourself a little extra time to do so.  Let’s keep the phrase “I missed the boat” from coming true.

4:  What happens if they cancel the show?

Ans:  If the show is cancelled, the ticket price will be refunded back to your credit card.

 5:  What happens if I miss the boat or cannot make it?

Ans:  Please keep in mind this is advanced ticket sales not a reservation.  No refunds are given unless the fireworks show is cancelled.  Space is limited, and this is a sell out event.

 6:  Can I bring Food and Drinks?

Ans:  Absolutely.  We highly recommend you treat the event as a picnic and prepare your basket accordingly.  Check the individual boat listings for their food and beverage policy prior to purchasing tickets.

 7:  What should I bring?

Ans:  Just like any other outdoor event, prepare accordingly.  Sunglasses, sunscreen and a sweatshirt are always recommended.  Check the local weather forecast before coming.
