The Best Seat in The House

Think boat cruises are fun? Wait until you try them with fireworks! Join us every Tuesday night throughout the summer (from June 22nd to August 17th) as we enjoy Hilton Head fireworks in style!

Sheltercove’s Harbourfest marks the arrival of weekly fireworks every year, jam-packed with events from live music and food vendors to kids events and the main attraction – fireworks!

Undoubtedly the best seat in the house is on our Hilton Head fireworks cruises. We’ll sail out through Hilton Head Island’s inland waterways to the best, unobstructed view of the firework display. We’ll soak in the atmosphere before watching stunning fireworks glittering and reflecting off the water.

If you’re looking to plan a celebratory evening, this is the perfect idea. Why not crack open a drink too, while you sit back and enjoy? There’s truly no better way to witness Hilton head’s fireworks than on a boat tour!

Hilton Head Fireworks Cruises, Suitable for All Ages

Our Hilton Head fireworks cruises allow all ages to experience the fun. We can cater to groups and families of up to six people.

Safety and comfort are our number one priority, so whether you’re planning a party with your friends or a night out with your kids, we’ll make it happen.

More Than Just a Hilton Head Firework Cruise

Our Hilton Head fireworks cruises are planned to take you directly to the best viewing location for the show. But you’ll see so much more on route! Leaving around sunset, you’ll witness breathtaking, vibrant colors filling the skyline before the main event.

Hilton Head Wildlife

As we cruise through Hilton Head’s inland waterways, you’ll also see a variety of local wildlife. We regularly see Osprey, Herons, Egrets, Pelicans, Cormorants, Oystercatchers, Bald Eagles and other sea birds.

Spot Dolphins!

You might even see a bottlenose dolphin! These friendly mammals are known for leaping through the air, wowing our guests. Bottlenose dolphins swim near the shores of Hilton Head Island in the summer. They often come right up to the boat to say hi! If you’re lucky, they’ll visit us while we wait for the fireworks show. Federal laws prevent any feed or touching, but don’t forget to take a photo! Bottlenose dolphins are very social and live in groups of around 12. They communicate with noises like clicks, whistles and squeaks. As they’re mammals, they can’t breathe underwater, so they’re always hanging around near the surface

Hilton Head’s Glittering Harbours

Our Hilton Head firework cruises will also pass by harbors and mansions that offer wonderful glittering lights at night. Often overlooked, these lights are a great part of any late-night Hilton Head boat tour.

The Best Way to Watch Hilton Head Fireworks?

Hilton Head fireworks cruises are widely considered the best way to watch fireworks on Hilton Head Island. Without the chaos on land, you’ll avoid crazy parking prices, chaotic traffic and poor views. Instead, it’s just you and your group having fun!

Harbourfest Information

Weekly Shelter Cove Fireworks

HarbourFest at Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina on Hilton Head Island, S.C., is a local and tourist favorite. Every week throughout the summer, you can celebrate and enjoy a party atmosphere with live music, entertainment, arts and crafts, food, drink and Tuesday night fireworks! It’s almost like a 4th of July celebration every week! Perfect for kids, this is one not to miss. And of course, the best way to see the fireworks is on our Hilton Head fireworks cruises!

What Fireworks Might We See?

  • Cake Fireworks – These heavy-duty fireworks create aerial effects at a rapid pace. With hundreds of shots at once, we’ll probably see these as part of the show’s finale.
  • Kamuru – This rocket is the glitz and bang of any firework display as it explodes to leave sparkles shimmering to the ground. Yes please!
  • Spiders – We’ll almost certainly see these huge bursting fireworks! They let out screams and pops as they go.
  • Crossette – Crackling, crisscrossing beauties. They’ll erupt with whizzes and squeals.
  • Peony – Launched off a rocket, this is a classic. A round ball of falling stars with vibrant neon-like lights!

    This was the BEST experience. Captain Brody was so great, he gave recommendations and took us to some really cool places. We also saw like 30 dolphins (amazing!) we had 6 girls for my bachelorette party and it was PERFECT. I would highly recommend this experience and will absolutely be rebooking the next time I’m in HH.

    Captain Brody was absolutely awesome! Our Bachelorette group of 6 ladies had an amazing time on the water and fit very comfortably on the boat. Captain Brody helped us create the best tour using his expert knowledge of the area. We were able to cruise, swim, dock and go to a fun bar he recommended, and see a TON of dolphins. Cannot recommend enough!

    This was an amazing tour!. Booked on Sat for a Sun tour and Captain Brody called right away to confirm. We did the 90min dolphin tour. Took our dog and had a blast. Captain Brody was so personable, knowledgeable and fun. We got to see Charlie, a resident overly friendly begger of a dolphin up close! I highly recommend booking with them!

    Captain Brody was the BEST! Some friends and I decided last minute to book a crabbing/dolphin/fishing charter with HHDT...at 9pm, through their website...and Captain Brody called me 5 minutes after we submitted the appointment request! We booked the next day to take 3 adults and an 8 and 5 year old out. He was patient, kind and answered all of the kids 1,000 questions. He also entertained the 3 adults. I liked it so much we booked another trip the next week to take my Dad out on a trip. Could not recommend them more!
