DC Cruises showcases the capital from an uncommon angle: the waterfront. The open-top yacht has a stylish lounge, air conditioning and panoramic windows. The top deck is the observation/dance deck. The yacht drifts 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. DJ parties, 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.
