Spirit of Mount Vernon

The Spirit of Mount Vernon and sister ship Spirit of Washington—modern, multilevel cruise ships with climate-controlled decks—host narrated tours that pass towering monuments or wend down the river to George Washington's historic home. The Odyssey, an elegant barge outfitted with glass-enclosed decks, can be used for lavish dinners and other events. Meanwhile, captains helm the private yacht Capital Elite for small-group dining and boating excursions or games of hide-and-seek with larger boats.
