Monuments-by-Moonlight
& Twilight Cruises

Happy Hour

Join us for a mesmerizing cruise along the illuminated capital at night. The reflections of the monuments, Kennedy Center and other grand structures off the water are an unforgettable sight for tourists and locals alike (and it makes a great date, too!)

These cruises are one hour long and depart from Georgetown (the dining mecca in Washington DC). Twilight cruises are usually at 8pm, and Moonlight cruises at 9:10pm. The 8pm features smooth jazz - perfect for relaxing or a romantic date, while the 9:10 one is Adults (18+) only and features urban dance music on the upper deck, and Jazz on deck 1. [10 PM and later cruises feature a DJ and run 90 minutes - See "DJ Cruises" at left]

Our modern cruise boat has panoramic windows, indoor and outdoor decks, a full bar, heating/air-conditioning, and bathrooms.
