See Washington DC from a new perspective on an evening cruise along the Potomac River. From the deck, you’ll have unparalleled sunset views of the city skyline, which looks completely different when lit-up. Indulge in a gourmet buffet dinner as you pass iconic landmarks illuminated at night. Plus, a live DJ ensures an enjoyable evening for larger parties and intimate dates alike.
What to Expect

Your evening begins at Washington DC’s District Wharf, where you are free to board an hour before departure. Grab a refreshing drink from the bar (own expense) before heading out onto the deck for sunset photos.

In the dining room, choose from a selection of freshly prepared appetizers, salads, and entrees served at an all-you-can eat buffet. Once the sun goes down, spot famous landmarks, including the Washington Monument and Woodrow Wilson Bridge, illuminated under the night sky.

Enjoy a variety of sweet treats for dessert, and then join the DJ on the dance floor to finish off the night—crowded bars in downtown DC can’t compare to dancing on the Potomac behind views of the cityscape.

If dancing isn’t your cup of tea, relax at your table, or step out onto the deck for a cool breeze with a view of the city skyline. Dock 2.5-3 hours after your departure time.
