See DC Differently. Embark DC offers private boat tours from The Wharf to multiple marinas in DC, Maryland and Virginia. Their captained cruises are fully customizable and availble by the hour.

Experiences on the Washington waterways are countless and diverse: from urban to entirely natural, from historical to modern, from waterfront restaurants to grilling at sunset, from full speed ahead with the wind in your hair to relaxing on anchor without a care, you're guaranteed to enjoy your adventure.

Enjoy special DC events—such as Fourth of July fireworks, Nationals games, or The Wharf's Holiday Boat Parade—by boat, or celebrate your own special moments such as proposals, anniversarsies, birthdays, or graduation.

Bring up to six guests on each 25' Chaparral power boat. Have more friends? Add more boats! Dogs are allowed, too (dog life vests are provided). The boats have state-of-the-art sound systems, 3 coolers, table, sink, comfortable seating, onboard lavatory and option for barbecuing aboard. Your USCG-licensed captain can provide a tour narrative, if desired. Food and beverages may be brought aboard.
