New Years’ Eve Fireworks Cruise

It’s back! The Ben Franklin Yacht annual New Years’ Eve Fireworks Cruise returns. Considered by many customers and staff members to be the best party of the year, come aboard and sail into the new year in style.

Boarding will begin at 9:30 PM and we will leave the dock promptly at 10:00 PM. After that, we will eat, dance, and be merry until the ball drops at midnight when there will be a live fireworks display on the river. We will return to the dock at 1:00 AM.

Please note that this event is 21 and over for admission.

Every ticket purchased includes food from our buffet, the menu for that evening will consist of:

  • Roast Beef Carving Station
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Penne Pasta
  • Vegetable Fried Rice
  • Caesar Salad
  • Dinner Rolls
  • Fruit and Cheese Display

In addition, there will be three fully stocked bars onboard equipped with top-shelf liquor and an assortment of beers including Miller Lite, Heineken, Corona, and White Claw. We will also have different soda and juice options available as well. All beverages are included with your ticket purchase.

On the cruise, there will be two dance floors located on the 2nd and 3rd decks. We will also have our own DJ aboard to supply music for this fun-filled evening.

Parking is available next to the boat and the cost is $20. The entrance to our parking lot is on the corner of Penns Landing Rd and Christopher Columbus Blvd.

Seating: This is an open seating event. There are tables available to sit at on the first, second, and third decks. A lot of time is spent moving around the boat, taking pictures, and dancing.
