    What to Expect
    This narrated sightseeing cruise provides an entirely new perspective on the city of Washington, DC and its many famous landmark locations. 
    Board the cruise boat for an afternoon excursion. The vessel departs from either Alexandria, Virginia OR Georgetown. Then prepare to experience Washington, DC like never before, from the tranquil waters of the Potomac River. 
    The Washington Monuments Cruise normally operates aboard the Miss Mallory, a double-decker vessel that can comfortably accommodate 80 to 100 people in warm weather, or the Matthew Hayes, which holds up to 60 passengers.
    See the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Washington Monument, Arlington Memorial Bridge, the 14th Street Bridge and much more.
