DC Harbor Cruises dazzle sightseers and locals alike with waterfront views of the capital’s monuments and historic sights. Guests relish seasonal beauty during the 50-minute cherry blossom springtime cruise as they drift under the blooming pink blossoms of DC’s batches of cherry trees, originally gifted to the city in 1912 by Tokyo’s mayor. The Patriot II high-speed catamaran carries up to 149 passengers across the Potomac River’s smooth waters and unexpected speed bumps, offering views of the majestic Lincoln and Washington memorials, the National Cathedral’s elegant towers, and the rolling hills of Arlington National Cemetery. Between stops, patrons can duck inside the boat to gather snacks and sustenance from two cash bars or draft a funnier version of the Constitution.

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.

Securing the groupon and making reservations was not an easy process, but the staff was wonderful and made sure me and my friends from out of town were able to enjoy the trip.
