HALF-DAY TO MULTI-DAY TOURS - Go Beyond The Metro


Experience our nation’s capital from a new perspective with a private yacht charter along the Potomac River. Stretching 383 miles from its origins in West Virginia, the Potomac flows through some of America’s most historic lands before emptying into the Chesapeake Bay. Fleet Miami offers half, full and multi-day chartered cruises through these historic waters aboard our fleet of yachts.

Enjoy a dinner cruise to view the monuments at night, or host a chic cocktail party within view of George Washington’s majestic estate, Mount Vernon. Gather your friends and family for a festive pre-game party en route to a baseball game at Nationals Park or arrive in style for a private tour of Mount Vernon or Fort Washington.


DAY CRUISE: MOUNT VERNON

Visit historic mount vernon by way of the potomac river

Greet your Fleet Miami yacht and crew in the morning before embarking on a leisurely cruise down the Potomac. Enjoy drinks and a light lunch as you dock at Mount Vernon.

One of the nation’s most beloved historic sites, Mount Vernon offers a glimpse into 18th-century plantation life through beautiful gardens and grounds, intriguing museum exhibits, and immersive programs honoring George Washington’s life and legacy. All types of VIP tours can be arranged including a private evening candlelight tour of the mansion with staff dressed in 18th century costumes. 

Stroll around the estate’s 500 acres and three gardens, visiting the workshops, the kitchen, the carriage house, the greenhouse and the slave quarters. Continue down the hill toward the boat landing to visit the tomb of George and Martha Washington and lay a wreath on George’s tomb. There is also a pioneer farmer site: a 4-acre hands-on exhibit with a reconstruction of George Washington’s 16-sided treading barn as its centerpiece.

DAY CRUISE: FORT WASHINGTON

WALK IN A SENTRY’S STEPS AT THE COUNTRY’S FIRST FORTRESS

Built to defend the river approach to Washington, DC, Fort Washington has stood as silent sentry for over 200 years. The original fort was destroyed during the War of 1812 and the current structure erected in 1824. Fort Washington is one of the few remaining Seacoast Forts in its original designs. The Fort is situated on the expansive grounds of Fort Washington Park, which offers extensive hiking trails, bike paths and scenic venues for picnicking or fishing.

Join your Fleet Miami yacht early in the day for a leisurely cruise along the Potomac coastline, taking in some of the monument sights and enjoying drinks and hors d’oeuvres along the way. A VIP tour of the fort can be arranged before you rejoin your yacht to enjoy a sunset cruise return.

DAY CRUISE: NATIONAL HARBOR

Shopping, art and stunning views

A mini-city called National Harbor has risen over the past eight years on a long-empty site. The village of shops, hotels, restaurants and public art was built between the Potomac River and the East Coast artery of Interstate 95. National Harbor is home to more than 150 diverse shops and boutiques and over 30 dining locations. The newest attraction is a 180-foot Ferris wheel built over the water, inspired by similar wheels in London and Paris. The $15 million Capital Wheel features views of Washington in the distance, as well as the river.

Spend the day cruising along the Potomac to dock at National Harbor. After enjoying the sights and activities on land, return to your yacht as the sun sets for a cocktail and canapes with a view of the twinkling Harbor lights.

WEEKEND CRUISE: ANNAPOLIS

HISTORY, WATERFRONT CHARM AND SEAFARERS’ CUISINE

A stunningly beautiful city, Annapolis, Maryland is well worth a weekend excursion. This premier sailing center has undeniable historic importance - it was here that George Washington resigned his commission as Commander in Chief in 1783 and the city briefly served as the nation’s capital. This architecturally rich and charming 18th-century town was built on a late 17th-century Baroque street plan.

Named one of the country’s top waterfront destinations, Annapolis is a mecca for those who love being on the water. From wine tasting to live performances, art galleries to water sports, Annapolis offers something for everyone while Fleet Miami provides luxurious nightly accommodations. Your visit to Annapolis is not complete without a trip to the Naval Academy and a dinner of steamed hard-shelled crab and Maryland crabcakes.
