4th of July Fireworks Cruise

by Ann Marie

Question: I am staying in Mashpee and was wondering if there is a harbor cruise being offered for the 4th of July Fireworks closer than Provincetown?

Dee's Reply: Hi Ann Marie -

The only other 4th of July fireworks cruise I know of is one that's offered by Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises.

On the 4th of July this year (2012), they're offering a special cruise from Barnstable Harbor to Provincetown to see the fireworks. (There's no whale watching involved.)

Barnstable Harbor is much nearer to Mashpee than Provincetown, by a lot of miles!

This cruise is 3 hours long, leaving from the pier in Barnstable at about 8 p.m. and returning around 11 p.m.

Onboard the ship there's food (lobster rolls, salads, along with non-seafoody selections) and live entertainment. Tickets are $75 per person, and that includes everything except parking and your choice of beverages. There's a full bar onboard.

Advance reservations are required. See Hyannis Whale Watcher's website for details.

I think this is the only other 4th of July fireworks cruise that's offered on the Cape this year, but I'm not 100% positive. So give me a day or two to do some checking around, and I'll let you know if I come across any others.

Best Regards,


*Note: This special 4th of July cruise is not offered every year. Please be sure to check Hyannis Whale Watcher's website for the most current information.

Called Whale Watches out of Barnstable & there is no trip this year (2016) due to tides.
