Renting a Boat in Washington D.C.

Boating around the Washington D.C. area is a unique and fun way to see the capitol. There are many luxury yachts and party boats available for rent.

Washington is bordered by the Potomac River on the west and partially by the Anacostia River on the east. As the Potomac reaches the city, it is broad and navigable all the way to the Chesapeake Bay. The Anacostia is a short river, starting in Maryland and flowing into the Potomac at the lower part of the city.

Most of the marinas in Washington are along the Washington Channel, a body of water about three miles long that connects with the Anacostia River and then the Potomac. The channel is within walking distance of the National Mall, the subway and the Maine Avenue Fish Market. The marinas have docks for vessels up to 125 feet in length with a beam of 32 feet.
