With so much excitement on the 4th of July, it can be difficult to choose which fireworks show to attend. Should you go to Peir 39? Jack London Square? or Berkeley? Good news, we’re at the heart of the San Francisco Bay! If you decide to charter a yacht after the BBQ, the view from the water gives you the best chance to take in the Fireworks from all around the Bay Area.

This all culminates in the grand fireworks over the water from the end of the Berkeley Pier at 9:35PM, presented by the City of Berkeley.
