    It was a lot of fun! I wish it was longer, but it was still neat. The boat ride is narrated which I was not expecting. For the most part the dogs were pretty friendly and everyone had a good time :)

      Oh that's great I wish we would have gone but we will try again on the 11th. How many dogs were there?

    • Julia

      They said they had about 10 cancellations, and I would say there were around 15 dogs there. There's an upstairs and downstairs on the boat

    In light of the impending weather, I have decided not to risk going on the outing this evening. I called the boat company to ask if the cruise was still departing. The response was "yes, at least for now". The friendly and accommodating staff allowed me to switch the date of my tickets (I switched to July 11th). If you have purchased your ticket and choose not to go, call to reschedule. If you still want to go this evening and the cruise is ultimately cancelled you will be contacted and given the choice of a refund or switching dates.

    I left a message to reschedule. Being so up in the air-the storm, that is ;-) - I just don't know how Tina will be and she can be a handful. Whoever goes, let us know how it went and stay dry!

    I still plan on going as well. I called the boat company just now and they said that it is still on. They said to call back at 6pm for a status update: (703) 684-0580. According to the weather channel radar, the worst of it should be over by 7pm.

    They exchanged my ticket for July 11th.

  • Julia

    Am I the only one sticking it out to wait and see what the weather is like tonight? For those who called: did they say any particular time you had to reschedule by? The forecast seems to keep pushing back the storm and it's sunny by me right now!

      Hi Julia, I just changed mine till the 11th. We really wanted to go but the radar looks like another storm is coming so I just didn't know if it would effect the cruise. It will take us abt 30 min to get there so I didn't want to drive all the way there and turn around. I hope if you do go its fun!

    Forecast predicted high chance of thunderstorm in VA and DC today so I called the boat company and switched the date.

  • Candace

    FYI...I called the boating company to ask what the protocol is if it rains...Answer: If it's raining the boat still goes out as long as it's not storming. The boat is covered.

      I just checked the weather too and it doesn't look good. Maybe I'll call the company later today.

      Good idea. My old lab doesn't like electrical storms.

    Does anybody know if there is free parking near the departure point? I'll be coming from Sterling and I plan to go before the rush hour starts. Thanks!

    How do you buy the ticket for this?

    The website isn't letting me buy the ticket. Its giving me a "departure not found" error message.

    I have always wanted to do this, but it will be way more fun for my dog with other dogs there to socialize with!
