National Ferry Corporation

National Ferry Corporation allows cruise-goers to experience Washington, DC aboard luxury vessels as they glide along the capital’s famous waterways. The climate-controlled interior and exterior decks ensure comfortable access to the sights in any weather.

On the 50-minute daytime harbor cruise, the tour sails past historical sites such as the Washington Monument while providing light narration, fun facts, and music to enhance the experience. A full bar is available with drinks and snacks for purchase.

The 90-minute sunset on the harbor cruise on either the PATRIOT II or FREEDOM vessels provides the opportunity to pair the scenic vistas of the capital with a favorite libation. The evening cocktail cruises are well-suited for dates or a night out with friends. A full bar is available — both cash and credit cards accepted.

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!
