Cherry Blossom Water Taxi
THE CHERRY BLOSSOM SHUTTLE RUNS JUST DURING THE FESTIVAL - approx. March 25- April 12th each year.
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 cherry blossom festival! Departing from Georgetown, the water shuttle travels along the monuments and 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 water taxi - no heating, so dress for the weather! [Our regular Blossom/Monuments tours are on a larger boat with heating and a bar]
Want a bigger boat with heating and a bar? - See our Cherry Blossom tours. They travel in a loop beginning/ending in Georgetown (with no stops), and provide wonderful views of the monuments and Cherry Blossoms from a double-decker boat.
