$39 for a Two-Hour Weekend Brunch Cruise with Buffet and Beverages ($79 Value)
At noon on Saturday and Sunday, passengers take to the water for a Brunch on the Bay cruise aboard a yacht that wends past Coney Island and around Jamaica Bay. During the two-hour excursion, guests sip up to four bar drinks such as house cocktails, champagne mimosas, and coffee. The lunch buffet brims with noshes such as pasta, meat and veggie wraps, and fresh fruits. Beneath the early-afternoon sun, live DJs set a pulsing rhythm on some cruises.
From the water, the fireworks seem close, as though you could open your mouth and catch the glittering cascades of light on your tongue.
