Cruise upriver past the monuments to Georgetown or downriver towards Mt. Vernon. You make the decision.


The Potomac Belle is centrally located in Old Town Alexandria Virginia and provides tours of Washington DC, Virginia and Maryland.

A three hour roundtrip cruise upriver to Georgetown offers spectacular views of the monuments and the Kennedy Center. You will be able to enjoy the Georgetown waterfront as we normally cruise to the Key Bridge.

Kennedy CenterA three hour cruise downriver brings you through the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, directly in front of Fort Washington and past Mt. VernonIMAG0559.jpg

This venue is relaxing during daytime cruises and is wonderful for star gazing at night.

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.

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.
