What You Can Expect

Cherry Blossom Riverboat Cruise on the Potomac

Cherry Blossom Riverboat Cruise on the Potomac

Board your boat, Miss Mallory or the Matthew Hayes, at Georgetown's Washington Harbour, for your morning or afternoon cruise. As you travel along Washington DC's Potomac River, keep your camera ready for photos of the city's famous cherry blossom trees, a gift from Tokyo. These gorgeous trees bloom for just two weeks each spring, and there's no better way to admire them than from the comfort of your riverboat. Listen to recorded narration about Washington DC's history and landmarks as you pass major sights such as the Lincoln Memorial, the dome of Jefferson Memorial, the dome of the US Capitol, Washington Monument, the Embassy of Sweden, Arlington National Cemetery and Arlington Memorial Bridge.

Feel free to move around your boat to fully appreciate the gorgeous views. Beverages are available on board (own expense). Your nearly 1-hour cherry blossom cruise along the Potomac concludes back at Washington Harbour in Georgetown.

Note: Your tour may be on the Miss Mallory or the Matthew Hayes pending weather and boat conditions

The tour was great. The perspective of DC from the Potomac was extremely captivating. Snapped a lot of pictures which from the water added a different perspective of the great monuments I have seen so many times while traveling through DC by car. Great trip!

The cruise on the Potomac was fun. The riverboat did not get close to the cherry blossums, but our camera was able to zoom in.

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2015

Nice tour with great view of the sites along the river. Not thrilling, but definitely worth doing.

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2014

Only five trees in one spot had bloomed. They bloomed after we left. Bad timing. Otherwise the cruise would have been great. The riverboat took us even though the date on the ticket was wrong.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this April 2014

We were the only two people on the boat as there was no Cherry Blossoms yet!
