New London, Connecticut's Sailfest fireworks show is truly spectacular, surpassing anything we have seen in New York harbor (or anywhere else)! In fact, it's the 2nd largest display in the Northeast! Our 5-hour experience provides the best seats in the house for an unobstructed view of this extravaganza, along with our fabulous New England lobster dinner and live music. This cruise always sells out, so make your reservations early!
