Cherry Blossom cruises set off from Georgetown, skim past Roosevelt Island, and dip down to the Tidal Basin and the Jefferson Memorial. Along the way, delicate pink cherry blossoms drift in the breeze, marking the beginning of spring and a compact of peace and friendship with Japan. On the way back, sightseers can gaze upon rear views of the Lincoln Memorial and the Kennedy Center. The ship comes with panoramic windows and interior heating, along with outdoor decks for clear photography. Cruises depart on weekends for the duration of blooming season, approximately every hour from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The happy-hour cruises depart at 5 p.m., 6 p.m., and 7 p.m.
DC Cruises showcases the capital from an uncommon angle: the waterfront. Sightseeing boats available for private parties ranging from 20 to 100 guests drift on the Potomac River from Georgetown to the Tidal Basin, taking in views of the Kennedy Center, the Lincoln Memorial, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Washington Monument. Sunset and happy-hour cruises cast the buildings against colorful skies. At night, the moon glows on the marble structures, giving them new mystique. Wine cruises and crab feasts combine on-the-water sightseeing with local fare, and cherry-blossom cruises showcase signs of spring: trees dotted with pink blooms and newborn bills cooing in their bassinets on the Mall.
