quotes Hi George,


Wanted to drop a line and thank you so much for everything! The evening was fantastic and you and your crew went above and beyond. We'll be sure to recommend you to anyone planning a get together. We have been getting compliment after compliment from the guests on how nice the atmosphere was, and how smooth everything went. And on a personal note, having the food arranged and cleaned up, and the assistance in setting everything up (including silverware and plates!), it made the whole evening so stress free. We were able to focus on the guests and not worry about the nitty gritty... It was fantastic.. So once again, thank you so much. The experience was unforgettable. 



quotes Thanks George!  Everyone had a wonderful time and I don’t think we could have better weather or a better crew!  Thanks again and we certainly hope to come back for a return cruise in the future and will highly recommend The Potomac Belle to our friends/family and out of town visitors!Again thanks,


quotes Thanks a million, George, to you and to your crew. We had the best time--emails, photos and phone messages were flying fast and furious this morning. It was the best staff gathering we've ever had, thanks to you. Our Brazilian maintenance staff member, Ivan, said that it was his best night in the US! There's an ad for Potomac Belle! We look forward to the next time." ~ Adrienne

quotes George, first of all, thank you for the night of a lifetime—everyone is still buzzing about it! Everything was perfect, and we especially appreciated your relaxed and gracious attitude." ~ Candace S.

 Hi George,

 Everyone had a great time – what a perfect day!   We will definitely be back and will recommend to others – you guys are great and your boat is perfect!  Thank you so much!


Hi George, thanks so much for helping us have such a great celebration this past Sunday.  We loved everything - the boat, the cruise and the stellar service from your crew!
My husband had a fantastic time and he extends his thanks and appreciation for helping us have such a good time.  
We will make sure we tell our friends about the Potomac Belle!


Hi George,

They had a fabulous time—I heard many of them saying that it was the highlight of the week and as you can imagine, they did a lot of fun and cool things while they were here.  A couple of the Visi girls told me the AUX cord was a huge hit and I’m just so thankful the weather was as beautiful as it was on Tuesday.  

Thank you for your continued generosity!  The girls couldn’t say enough good things about the experience.  

Many, many thanks!


Thank you!! You and Bill did a phenomenal job. We enjoyed you guys. Superb customer service. Thank you for taking us to the Lincoln. The views were amazing. We had an absolute blast!! The boat ride was the talk of the night and will continue to be. My mom had a fantastic 60th birthday. We already are planning our boat ride for next year. The ladies want to do this annually. I will be sure to keep in contact and write a review on some sites.

Thanks again,


Thank you George. Finding you and your boat and friendly crew on short notice was like discovering a buried treasure. At breakfast this morning we were all talking about how we are going to charter the Potamac Belle again on our next adventure to the area.
Warmest Regards,



Thanks so much for everything! We all had wonderful time on Thursday.  Your team made the party set up and break down so easy for us.  You all were a lot of fun too!  We would love to have a future event on the Potomac Belle.
Joan and Jeff

We chartered the Potomac Belle for a group of 20 teenagers as a "between dinner and the prom" activity.  It was wonderful.  The boat easily handled the group, George and the crew were skilled and friendly, and the kids loved the novelty of this pretty cool activity.  The Potomac Belle staff help you keep costs down by allowing you to bring your own snacks and drinks.  The parent chaperones AND the kids would all highly recommend the Potomac Belle.

I had a GREAT experience on board the Potomac Belle for my husband's 30th birthday. George and the team were extremely professional and accommodating throughout the entire evening and planning process -- right down to setting up the food and drinks, taking pictures for us, and ensuring that all of our guests were having a great night. I couldn't think of a better way to spend a milestone birthday -- and it was a beautiful way to see some of DC's best sites both at sunset and a night. Plus the boat looks great and has a solid sound system and is really clean.

Overall, it was a top notch experience and I would highly recommended them!

This was the best birthday party ever, The Capt. and the crew was the best, very helpful. Everything was perfect, the food the Fireworks the drinks everything.  I couldn't have asked for a better birthday party.  I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Potomac Belle.  My party was on July 3 on a Friday just before the4th and I saw just as many Fireworks.  At one moment I thought  I had my own personal Firework show.  It was awesome!!!!!!

We had a birthday party aboard the Belle in September and it was simply amazing.  The experience was all we could have asked for and more.  George (captain and owner) was responsive, hospitable, and friendly in every interaction.  He did everything possible to make the occasion special.  We did a night cruise and brought our own food and beverages.  We were able to play our own music and customize the experience just the way we wanted to.  I can't say enough about the Belle.  The price is unbeatable, the boat is clean and nicely appointed with an open-air deck, and the crew is very helpful.  If you look anywhere else, you are wasting your time.  I would recommend the Belle to anyone seeking a private charter.

As good as it gets! for sure!  Boat Captain George and his team are first class all the way.  My family had one of the most memorable times of our lives on board the Potomac Belle for a two hour cruise on the Potomac.  The yacht itself is very comfortable and the staff could not be more accommodating.


We brought our own brunch food and beverages and they provided the tables, cloths and ice, as well as gracious assistance.


I would recommend this to anyone who wants an amazing experience that they won't soon forget.  We will be doing this again for sure!

I hosted an engagement party for my daughter on board the Potomac Belle for 35 people.  It was a wonderful way to celebrate this family event and at the same time show off a bit of DC to out-of-town guests from the water.  The crew was very friendly, accommodating, and professional.  Another plus for me was being able to provide the drinks and choosing my own caterer.  I would definitely recommend the Potomac Belle to those looking for a similar experience.
