I will begin my review by saying do not even waste your time with this company. At all. Not even a few seconds. Their lack of professional ethics is by far the worst I've ever encountered. I was due to rent a private yacht from them to celebrate a milestone. The company contacts me a day and a half ahead... More

Booked this event thru Groupon for half price ($20). The boat was fine and the event was entertaining. Two drink tix afforded you the choice of beer, wine (bad wine) or a rum punch. Food was available for purchase (no free snacks as the ad implied). Lots of people did karaoke (bad karaoke)! Overall it was something different to do... More

The greatest way to take a break from the normal tourist trudge.The cruises are relaxing and picturesque.They have a variety of vessels for their cruises.The Captain was friendly and courteous.One of the other benefits of this particular location is its proximity to the water front seafood markets where you can pickup some fresh seafood or cooked ready to eat.

Excellent cruise. Yes, the blossoms were few but the boat trip was awesome. A marvelous way to see our DC a different way. The crew were very efficient, the boat was very clean and our narrator was excellent. A wonderful way to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon!

No cherry blossoms--well there WERE 4 trees in bloom--but the crew was awesome. The cruise was wonderful and even though there weren't too many trees in bloom, there were other trees in leaf (Willows, etc) and the sites/narration were very well done. We were thrilled with the the trip in spite of seeing few blossoms. The company offers private charters,... More

Thankfully I got my tickets through Living Social & paid a fraction of the ticket price, otherwise I would be quite upset. We took the cruise during the Cherry Blossom festival & saw hardly a blossom. I live here - the rest of the city is in full bloom. Also, we saw almost no monuments. I don't think you can... More

Cruise itself was ok, but food was pretty bad -- cheese cubes, crackers, veggies, cookies. No tour info provided by speaker during the cruise. Just up and down the Potomac 3-4 times. Parking was good ($15) but no info was provided in advance so we were pretty anxious about this as we arrived just in time due to very bad... More
