About our Tall Ships Fireworks Cruises
2017 marks the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation. During the Easter Weekend (12th April until the 16th April 2017) the majestic Tall Ships will return to the Royal Borough of Greenwich to start the Rondez-Vous Tall Ships Regatta to Quebec, Canada. The trans-Atlantic race is expected to attract over 40 large tall ships & sailing ships to the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
Our two hour Tall Ships Fireworks Cruise will depart North Greenwich Pier before heading downriver through the Thames Flood Barrier to view the magnificent tall ships. Between 35 and 40 tall ships will be moored between Maritime Greenwich & Woolwich Arsenal for the Tall Ships Festival 2017. During the cruise our knowledgeable crew will point out places of interest and tell the history of the tall ships that they have researched.
The evening finale is a spectacular firework display at Maritime Greenwich (Thursday & Friday) or Woolwich Arsenal (Saturday). After the fireworks we will return to North Greenwich Pier to allow you to disembark.
