Cherry Blossom River Cruise

 Hurry and buy your ticket online with 5OFF discount code for cost of $19.

We'll have late lunch at Nick's Riverside Grill after cruise.

We will once again be running our river tours along the Cherry Blossoms. Our one hour tours provide a spectacular view of the flowering trees reflecting off the water, with close-ups of the Jefferson and Washington memorials and Kennedy Center in the back-drop. The views will be unforgettable, so don't forget to bring the camera.

Our modern cruise boat has panormaic windows, heating, indoor and outdoor decks (plus lavatories). 

Narrated 50 minute river tours takes passengers around the blossoms in West Potomac Park along the monuments and then arrives at the Tidal Basin. Cost: $24/adults, $12/Children.

    The 1:00 PM boat was sold out. I booked on the 1:45. Does that mean I should change my RSVP to no?

    Since this conflicts with the MeetUp at Gunston Hall, is there any interest in doing it on a subsequent weekend as well?

    As of 10am (3/8) it *didn't* appear that the 1:45 time slot was sold out. But others time slots are. RSVP-ing to the meetup doesn't reserve your spot on the boat. Recommend folks buy/confirm boat tix first (Dave gave the link below), then RSVP on meetup.

    I've decided to open this activity up to as many people that want to go. However, we may not all fit on one boat, and he group may be separated. I plan to arrive early, with my ticket in hand.

    SALT here, wow, I have been trying my best to keep up with these events. Foiled again, early birds get the worm. I check at night. Guess I will have to check earlier! Have fun on the boat - I've never heard of a boat having so much. Lucky I am going to the Gunston Hall event - kite flying. Certainly something for all in this group! Thanks Becky - great idea! Y'all have fun.
