Spectacular Fourth of July Fireworks BBQ Sail

Treat Yourself to Something Special

See the awe-inspiring Macy's July 4th, 2017, fireworks display light up the sky over the East River.

You can’t get any closer to the action, just step aboard the massive Clipper City Tall Ship or the elegant Shearwater Classic Schooner for a front row seat to the festivities.

Learn to tie a sailor's knot from a crewman or sit back and take in the sights from the serene vantage point of two of America's most beautiful and historic operating sailing ships.The show will feature more than 40,000 shells exploding at a rate of more than 1,500 per minute and fireworks reaching heights of 1,000 feet in the air.
