After a long and difficult two years, it is time to celebrate the 4th of July like never before! Honor Independence Day in an exciting and special style:

…. aboard a private boat;
…. the monuments by moonlight;
…. with the best view of the fireworks in Washington, D.C.

In our two hour cruise, we’ll feature:

  1. FIREWORKS CELEBRATION:
    Over $1,000,000 goes into this special show. Rather than cramming into a small space on the National Mall, enjoy plenty of elbow room under the fresh air as we watch Washington’s largest fireworks spectacular! We’ll park in a prime area along the Potomac River where the colorful display explodes practically over our heads in Red, White and Blue celebration!
  2. MEMORIALS BY MOONLIGHT:
    Before and after the fireworks, we’ll celebrate Independence Day along the Potomac River with sunset and moonlight views of some of Washington’s most amazing evening sites including the: Kennedy Center, Key Bridge, Memorial Bridge, Roosevelt Island, Washington Monument, LBJ Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, U.S. Capitol, The Watergate, Lincoln Memorial, Maritime Memorial, the Ronald Reagan National Airport, Old Town, VA, and the Custis-Lee Mansion.
  3. POST CRUISE RECEPTION:
    (To the extent available by current conditions). After the cruise, we will offer an optional reception at a nearby venue to continue mixing, mingling, and celebrating our country’s birthday (cash bar).
