Just imagine standing at the bow of a boat deck, the salty air billowing past you and nearly carrying all your thoughts and worries away with it. The boat gently flows through the tranquil Gulf waters and you’re sipping on a tropical drink as the sun dips its toes into the sea at the horizon. After the sun has disappeared into the ocean and a black blanket has draped across the sky, you are greeted by a colorful 4th of July fireworks display just overhead. It’s just the cherry on top to a picture perfect evening. If that sounds like the perfect way to spend your Independence Day, you’ll definitely want to take a Fort Myers fireworks cruise.
Best 4th of July Fireworks Cruises in Fort Myers
This 2.5 hour long tour will depart from Pink Shell Beach and sail down the river, so keep an eye out for the bottlenose dolphins that populate the waters and like to cruise alongside the boat. You’ll receive a spectacular view of Southwest Florida’s famous sunset, and once night falls, the deck is the perfect spot to watch the brilliant fireworks display from the shore. Guests are encouraged to bring their own food and refreshments (excluding red wine) and book their spot early as this cruise fills up fast!
Come prepared to dance the night away! The 3-hour party begins with a view of the sunset near Sanibel Island lighthouse, and then proceeds to the Fort Myers Beach pier for a showing of one of the best fireworks shows in Southwest Florida. Although the cruise does not include food, it does offer an open bar all night long to its guests. It’s a great way to make 4th of July memories that will last a lifetime. Please keep in mind that all guests must be 21 or over to board.
Enjoy the exquisite Sanibel Island fireworks display from one of the best vantage points, the water. Aboard this cruise, you will receive complimentary soft drinks, bottled water, and snacks as you watch the sunset near Bird Island and then receive an incredible view of the fireworks at nightfall. It’s a family-friendly activity that is sure to one-up any 4th of July you’ve celebrated before.
For the foodies out there, this may be the cruise for you. A full buffet meal and cash bar is served aboard this triple deck paddle wheeler that provides unspoiled views of the Fort Myers fireworks. It departs from the historic downtown just before the sun sets and cruises down the Caloosahatchee River as you eat and dance to your heart’s content. It’s an enjoyable and inexpensive way to make the most of Independence Day.
