About event

What is better than summertime on the water? You think rooftop bars good as it gets? Think again. It’s time you experience rooftop cocktails on a boat while sailing along the waters of beautiful Washington, DC. Friendly crew, full bar, fun times. You’ll feel like you’re on vacation as your weekly worries stay behind on land. Enjoy drinks and tunes as you sail away, we are just a 5-minute walk from the incredible dining at the Wharf! Take in the view as you glide past the famous historic landmarks of our nation's capital. This cruise is family friendly!


Departs from and returns to the Washington Marina on the Southwest Waterfront, a short walk from The Wharf and the Tidal Basin! Keep your camera handy for panoramic scenes that encompass the horizon.
