Cherry Blossom Water Taxi


Avoid the traffic jams that surround the Jefferson Tidal basin and National Mall area during the cherry blossom festival by hopping on the water taxi. Departing from Georgetown, it travels along the monuments and parks (including views of the blossoms), and 25 minutes later drops you at the Jefferson Tidal Basin, right in the middle of the Cherry Blossom Trees!

Then return later in the reverse direction. [You may also make the trip starting at the Tidal Basin and getting off in Georgetown. It's great for shopping or grabbing dinner at one of the hundred-plus eateries in DC's dining mecca].

The boat is a simple water taxi - no heating, so dress for the weather! [Our regular tours are on a larger boat with heating and a bar]
