Set sail this New Year's Eve on an Island Queen Cruise. Three yachts that will take revelers around Biscayne Bay-Island Lady, Bayside Blaster, and Island Queen. On the Island Queen, guests can sip cocktails, wine, and beer-and don't forget a glass of bubbly when it comes time for the final countdown. Appetizers and snacks will also be served including iced jumbo shrimp, chicken wings, cheeses, and a tasty hummus dip. Fresh tropical fruits, brownies, and assorted cookies round out the delicious goodness.
A talented DJ will be spinning tunes throughout the night, both on the Island Queen and Island Lady yachts. Each of these crafts feature air conditioning in the lower salon and picture windows. Get a good spot on deck-really, there aren't any bad ones-to see the spectacular fireworks display over the water at midnight. The fireworks launch from downtown, lighting up Miami's night sky.
A New Year's Eve Dinner on the Bay
Want a little something more? Two other crafts, the Venetian Lady and the Biscayne Lady, will host New Year's Eve dinner cruises. A delicious dinner of salad, pasta, top sirloin, and chicken are part of the celebration. Be sure to save room for a bevy of mouthwatering desserts like pumpkin pie, chocolate cake, and cheesecake.
Tickets for the Fireworks cruises are $100 per adult. The Dinner cruises are $249 per adult. A pre-paid ticket is necessary to board. Be sure to check out each boat because they all are a little different, with varied itineraries on the Bay. Boarding is at Bayside Marketplace. Parking is available in the Bayside Marketplace garage or on Biscayne Boulevard. To make reservations, call 305-379-5119 ext. 2001.
