& 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) [See our Directions/Map at left]. Twilight cruises are at 8pm (but Moonlight on the way back in April/May), and Moonlight cruises are at 9:10pm

Our modern cruise boat has panoramic windows, indoor and outdoor decks, a full bar, heating/air-conditioning, and bathrooms [Note: There's LITE narration, and plenty of moonlight music -- for fully narrated tours see our Monuments TOUR cruises].
