    What to Expect
    This narrated sightseeing cruise provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington, DC and its many famous landmark locations. 

    Board the cruise boat for an afternoon excursion. The vessel departs from either Alexandria, Virginia OR Georgetown. Then prepare to experience Washington, DC like never before, from the tranquil waters of the Potomac River. 

    The Washington Monuments Cruise normally operates aboard the Miss Mallory, a double-decker vessel that can comfortably accommodate 80 to 100 people in warm weather, or the Matthew Hayes, which holds up to 60 passengers.

    See the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Washington Monument, Arlington Memorial Bridge, the 14th Street Bridge and much more.

    We took a return trip between Georgetown and Alexandria. We enjoyed it well enough but there really isn’t that much to see close to the river like you get in London or Paris. The River is also very wide which further limits what you see....More

    The recorded narration couldnt be heard over the engine. They couldnt scan our mobile ticket and asked us to disembark in Alexandria to get it straightened out. Two hours of my life I wont get back HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT

    What a great way to spend a beautiful day. We learned more about our area, and enjoyed the sites. We did not choose to get on and off - but thought it’s be a great option. We absolutely loved the ride!

    If you advertise an "Evening cruise" when does that depart???? All I see are afternoon departures.
