So the cruise was a solid OK, borderline boring. It lasted just over an hour, and we just drove up the Potomac and back. The music was so quiet you couldn't really hear it, and we were next to a speaker, and when you could...More

Super disappointed. The boat showed up 20 minutes late which was irritating enough but we didnt even get that time back! We were robbed of that time. Then to make things worse, one of the staff followed my group off the boat and hit on...More

This was a fun way to see a different viewpoint of the memorials--from The water. They have a piped in voice over that gives some Historical and viewpoints. The boat leaves from the Washington Harbor in Georgetown.

I gave this outing 3 stars for the cruise and the staff. It lost it's first star with no onsite parking. I have been living near Washington DC for over a year and parking is crap for just about any outing in the city and...More

So this is blatantly not true. Our cruises start ontime and end ontime. And the hour-long cruise are an hour long (otherwise you would see about 50 reviews on TA that say such, not one!). We carry about 10,000 customers a year, so its unlikely...More
