Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Cherry Blossom and Monuments Cruise in Washington DC

The "Osprey"

Make your way to Georgetown or National Mall and embark on a 50-minute cherry blossom cruise on the Potomac River. Cruises take place on the charming single-deck Osprey with premier views of the Tidal Basin draped in dainty blooms of pink and white. 

For just a few weeks each spring, the cherry trees of Washington DC show off their flowers for visitors flocking to the nation’s capital. You’ll get a panoramic look at these majestic blooms — a gift from the city of Tokyo — while relaxing on the boat. 

Focus your camera on the blossoms reflected in the water or fluttering in the breeze, and hear live commentary about the history of Washington DC monuments. Along your route you’ll see the Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, Washington Monument and John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, among other landmarks.

Beverages are available for purchase on board.
