National Ferry Corporation

Departing from Washington Marina, a boat skipper begins another journey down the calm, flat waters of the Potomac River. The multi-decked, climate-controlled boats, such as the Patriot II catamaran, power National Ferry Corporation's daily tours of the capital's famous waterway. The tour crafts are furnished with bars, snacks, full audio systems, and plush seating for sightseers to enjoy as they drift along the Potomac's smooth waters and collect eyefuls of national treasures. Guests can admire the imposing Capitol Building and whisper about how silly the Washington Monument looks without its powdered wig. The Coast Guard–certified staff points out other notable visuals such as the National Cathedral's stately towers, the Pentagon, and Fort McNair.

Customer Reviews

Great experience when the weather is good. I would suggest to get there early enough if you are concerned about seating. We did not have a seat, but they do have high top tables. The also have hotdogs, chips, and cocktails. It was relaxing and I would do it again!
