I was visiting DC with my husband and wanted to find something to break up the monotony of walking through museum after museum and found this little gem of a boat tour. These speedy little 2 person cats were the perfect option! My husband did the driving while we zipped across the water baby duck style. It was so fun! Seeing the deer grazing along the shore of Mount Vernon was so beautiful and we even saw a bald Eagle! Both the owner of the company and our tour guide seemed to really love what they do. Thanks guys for being a great part of our East Coast vacation!
By far one of the best thrilling experiences I've had in the DC area! Our guide was great (Suggs) and the staff just made the entire process and learning how to steer the boat incredibly easy! We will definitely be returning soon! Thank you for an amazing time!
It was amazing, I wish I had the time on my trip to do it a second time... Well worth the price an the team there was amazing....
