Golden Eagle Charters Fireworks Cruise Tips

  • Book ASAP. Some nights are booked well in advance so get in early to secure your groups booking.
  • Try and tailor a theme for the night. For instance if you choose July 28th and the fireworks are put on by Mexico, why not get everyone fitted out in their craziest Mexican attire!
  • The Fireworks start at 10pm each night - Rain or Shine!
  • Bring a Digital Camera. Some cameras often have a “Fireworks” mode so have a look at this prior to the event to ensure you can get the best photos possible.
  • Make sure you estimate the total costs ahead of time including transport, drinks, food etc. Try and get all the money collected before the event to avoid any confusion.
  • Take care of any guests who may have drank too much and make sure they get home safely.

The fireworks finale cruise was spectacular. If you have never seen the fireworks from the water then I suggest you get some friends together and book Golden Eagle Charters.
