FIREWORKS (Memorial Day - Labor Day)

Want a front row seat on the water for SPI’s Fireworks Show? Bayside Water Rentals will provide the WOW experience that is affordable, safe, and memorable.


Enjoy an amplified experience of bursting colors and vibrations on the water from the Fireworks overhead while you sit on an LED kayak or paddleboard that changes colors and glows!


Bayside Water Rentals provides a guided Fireworks Venture to a location out on the water and anchor down to watch the incredible pyrotechnics like you’ve never seen before. If you want to avoid the crowds on a boat and have your own space....this event is for you!


Reservations are suggested (limited spots available).  Reservations for this event can be sold out one or two weeks ahead of time.
