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 tour was the highlight of our trip to Hilton Head. A great way to spend the morning. We saw so many dolphins. Captain Brody was the best! He even recommended some local places to eat 🙂

    Having spent almost a decade on the Island, I have never seen or even heard of a Dolphin Experience like we had! It exceeded our wildest expectations. Perhaps once in a lifetime but so well worth it!

    We had the best time and saw so many dolphins! At the end of the ride one was right next to the boat following us. It was an amazing experience and I look forward to doing it again!

    Awesome time! Me and my girlfriend took the 2 hour dolphin tour! Captain Brodie was a AWESOME host! The boat will seat 6 people, but it was just the two of us! Amazing time on the water, and we saw multiple dolphins and even a baby hammerhead shark! Well worth the money! Brodie is full of information! Be kind and tip if you go! Next time we come back, I will be in touch with captain Brodie!

    We had the best time with Captain Brody! We are four girlfriends who booked a sunset cruise, and we were not expecting such a fun Captain, great music, dolphins, and the wealth of knowledge he had about the area. He came as a recommendation to us, and we plan to use him for every visit going forward!

    Wow. What a great time. Captain Brody was great. Very knowledgeable about dolphins, their behaviors, and the best areas to spot them. We were not disappointed. We spent more than 30 min in one area because they were all around us. Thank you Captain Brody for a wonderful and memorable afternoon. (Gina Davis is my alias. 😜) 530p on 8/10/20 for the 1 1/2 hour tour.

    Captain Brody was awesome! We had so much fun dolphin watching that we scheduled ocean fishing for the next day! We have two young boys, he kept it interesting, educational, fun and safe!
