We went to the Wharf to buy tickets. The process was fast and efficient. The boat was on time and the crew were welcoming. As it was late November, there were not many people on board. We sat on the front deck and enjoyed the beauty of the Potomac and the monuments on the banks.

This was a fun and inexpensive ride up the Potomac River. There are views of DC on one side and Virginia on the other. Lots of bridges, some old and some new. The crew was very helpful and professional. The taxi was very clean. We only went one way but you can buy a round trip
