This boat is in the water at James Creek Marina in the Navy Yard area of Washington DC with easy access and free parking.
It has spacious comfortable seating throughout the boat, an amazing rear-facing seating area on the stern, built-in soundsystem, a huge bimini top to provide shade, a bathroom on board, and is super clean, easy to use, and well maintained.
Please note: prior boating experience is required to rent this boat, it is not the best option for a first boat rental. No skiing/wakesports/tubing is allowed.
I have the boat set for the least restrictive cancellation policy possible on Boatsetter -- you can cancel with a full refund up to 1 day prior to your rental. And in most cases, if weather is going to be so bad that a rental with another group would not be possible anyway (or if the forecast is wrong), I will also work with you on a new time, or still work on a refund within the 24 hour window, too.
Renters pay for gas -- the boat is very efficient, the average cost is around $30-40 per half day rental, depending on how much cruising around you do.
Other than gas, there are no other fees beyond what Boatsetter shows you on your checkout screen. Please choose either the 10:30 or 3:00 p.m. start time when making your booking.

Doug was Very organized, pragmatic, knowledgeable and fair. Jet Boat was terrific. Took me an hour or so of operation to figure out how To manage the twin jet engines independently but once I did I’m not sure if I can go back to a propeller. The boat The boat is very maneuverable and smooth. It is well maintained and upscale. I definitely plan on doing this again.
Such an amazing experience and great time spent out on the water. Doug was beyond helpful during . the process and very patient as I got everything organized for my first time on the water in a few years. My friends enjoyed themselves and everyone wants to have a birthday boat event now and I have recommended Doug highly. Thank you brother. Will rent again!!
Doug’s boat was in great shape and was an incredible time out in the waters of DC. His instructions were informative and made for an easy trip from start to finish. He was quick and easy to be in touch with. The best boating experience you can get in the area for a reasonable price. Highly recommended!
