Tips for boaters:

  • Fireworks are weather dependent and times are subject to change. Always confirm with the event’s planner before heading out.
  • Get an updated marine weather report and check current charts.
  • Leave early, allowing plenty of time to anchor or raft up.
  • Keep clear of designated security/safety zones. Consult the harbormaster or other enforcement personnel for wind direction so you don’t anchor downward of falling ashes.
  • Be comfortable operating a vessel at night. Plan the return route, observe other boats and wave activity, and listen to the VHF radio for local chatter and alerts.
