What’s more Miami-esque than spending NYE on a boat? If you don’t have any friends at the yacht club, book a seat with Island Queen Cruises. From champagne sails to full-dinner cruises, there are lots of options, and all rides let you get up-close and personal with downtown’s fireworks display. Tickets cost $45 to $179, and cruises set sail from Bayside Marketplace (401 Biscayne Blvd., Miami). Times vary. Visit islandqueencruises.com or call 800-910-5119.
