GET ON THIS BOAT: Potomac Cruising with Reflections DC

Seeing the Capital City from the water is one of the most highly sought-after activities in the summer and early Fall. And while DC has ALL kinds of boat rentals, locals and tourists alike most often seek an intimate cruise on the Potomac with just their family and friends.

Captain Jerry Lee of Reflections DC offers this and more — including fascinating insider facts about DC — from his personal vessels, an open-air runabout (Cortina), and a blue water sailing vessel (Sonora).

Now conveniently departing from the metro-accessible Wharf at 650 Wharf Street SW (video viewers may recognize that our cruise actually took off from Gravelly Point in Virginia), Reflections DC is a private and personalized boat touring company that offers motor- and sailboat Potomac cruises for individuals, couples, and small groups.

Options are ideal for a perfect afternoon on the water, seeing the monuments and memorials from DC’s most unique vantage point — or taking advantage of the popular sunset cruise to wind down with someone special.

Hiring a smaller private boat operator is not only much more accommodating than any of the other over-priced tourist boat tours available, Captain Jerry has interesting and personal stories to share that will introduce you to Washington in an all-new way!

You’ll also be thoroughly impressed with his attention to safety while at the same time making sure everyone is relaxed, comfortable, and having a grand time.

After cruising with Reflections DC, KSM is convinced that there’s basically nothing better than having your own private boat, captain, and photographer — that’s right Jerry even takes professional souvenir pictures for his cruise guests so they can remember their fabulous time on the water!
