View the Cherry Blossoms by Water!

March 25th – April 30th 2017

Experience our nation’s greatest springtime celebration from a new perspective.

  • Weekdays | Enjoy a 50-minute narrated roundtrip Sightseeing Cruises past the cherry blossom trees during their annual bloom season, and see some of Washington, D.C’s iconic monuments and memorials along the way.
  • Weekends | Refer to the Monuments Cruises which go past the cherry blossom trees.
  • Attending the Festival | Skip the traffic and crowded subways and take our Potomac Water Taxi service directly to the National Mall!
  • Dining Cruises | Dine on the water while you cruise past the cherry blossoms. Visit Spirit of Washington for a casual, buffet dining experience or Odyssey for an elegant, plated dining experience.

Please note: Official 2017 dates for National Cherry Blossom Festival events are March 20 through April 16. Exactly when the cherry blossom buds will open is not easy to predict, as an accurate forecast of peak bloom is nearly impossible to provide much more than 10 days prior. The blooming period starts several days before typical peak and can last as long as 14 days, if not shortened by frost, high temperatures, wind or heavy rain. Learn more about the schedule of events and peak bloom season at www.nationalcherryblossomfestival.org

Special Notes:

The blooming period starts several days before the average peak bloom date (April 4th) and can last as long as 14 days, however, frost or high temperatures combined with wind or rain can shorten this period.
