2016 July 4th Macy’s Fireworks Extravaganza with the Yacht America

2016 July 4th Macy’s Fireworks Extravaganza

Come join Next Level Sailing and the South Street Seaport Museum for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enjoy the beauty, excitement and un-forgettable enjoyment of the 2016 July 4th Macy’s Fireworks Extravaganza aboard the luxurious Schooner America. Built in 1995, this beautiful replica of the yacht that started the 165 year legacy of premiere yacht racing is on a World Tour in 2016. Normally based in San Diego, America will be in New York for the city’s Independence Day Celebrations this year.

Join us for an elegant evening departing from the South Street Seaport Museum Pier 16. You will set sail into the spectacular New York Harbor and enjoy close-up views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and enjoy the skyline of Manhattan from the very waters that made New York the dynamo it is today. Your sail will culminate in awe-inspiring fireworks which you will see from America’s spacious decks, put on once again this year by Macy’s Department Stores. This event has never failed to please and amaze and your view from the water will be like none other.

Your hosts, Captain Sears and his crew, invite you join them on this historic sail while enjoying their famous hospitality. Your ticket will include not just this breathtaking sail itself but also includes a delicious spread of elegant but casual food and includes complimentary beverage service as well (beer wine and soft drinks). The trip will last approximately 4 and 1/2 hours. Our exact return to the dock is hard to predict as it will be controlled by the US Coast Guard security controls on the river but we expect to be back to the dock shortly after 10:00pm. The comfortable decks accommodate no more than 75, so buy your tickets early.

Meeting place:

Pier 16 (street Address: 89 South Street) America will be docked at the outer end of the pier so walk out (east) onto pier 16 from South Street. The vessel sets sail at 6:00pm sharp so plan to arrive before 5:30. There will be considerable police control of movement in the neighborhood which will add extra time for your travel. Your Zerve ticket print out will allow to you pass through the various police check points. There will be crew to check you in on pier 16.

What to bring:

It is always cooler out on the water so an extra layer and comfortable clothing is the order of the day. There will be many photo opportunities along the way. Bring your friends and family and room in your heart for an unforgettable experience.

What not bring:

Please don’t bring alcoholic beverages of any kind. Schooner America has a zero tolerance policy on illicit drugs of any kind. Any person found in possession will be removed from the boat by the local authorities.

Tickets $300 per person
