Cherry Blossom Water Taxi


Enjoy beautiful views of the blossoms from the water, while avoiding the traffic jams that surround the Jefferson Tidal basin and National Mall area during the festival! Departing from Georgetown, the water taxi travels along the monuments and blossoms, and 25 minutes later drops you at the Jefferson Tidal Basin, right in the middle of the Cherry 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 water taxi - no heating, so we recommend a light jacket most days- but it's entirely covered from the rain. [Our regular Blossom/Monuments tours are on a larger boat with heating and a bar]
