Discover boating on the Potomac River on my 26’ Sea Ray Sundeck 260 for a full 6 hour day or for a SUNSET CRUISE from 6-9pm on designated Thursdays, Fridays & Weekend days. Bring your coolers, lots of room to stow them out of the way, & feel free to partake in your favorite adult beverage, since you'll have a designated driver! Enjoy sightseeing, cruising, tubing, or simply relaxing on the river. My boat is stored at Hope Springs Marina midway between DC & Colonial Beach (approx 2 hours from each), and only a few miles from TIMS II at Fairview Beach. Great things to see from the river include Occoquan, Mt Vernon, National Harbor, Old Town Alexandria, Reagan National Airport, many DC monuments, Kennedy Center, Georgetown waterfront, and Key Bridge. This 80 mile span of the Potomac includes dozens of great restaurants to include TIMS I & II, The Electric Palm, Proud Mary, Gilligan’s, Capt Billy’s, Dockside, Port Tobacco, & a few others…all of which have great seafood & atmosphere & many have live music. And always a good option is to find a quite cove to drop anchor, picnic, watch wildlife, swim, float on a raft, fish, go tubing or just hang out and enjoy the river. My boat has a fully functioning head (potty) and two tables to set up for your picnic. Has an awesome sound system to plug in your tunes. Has a sink with fresh water and a fresh water wash-down/open-air shower in front & on the rear swim deck. Has everything you need to enjoy all that the Potomac has to offer.
