Thank You!

DC Sail hosts a fantastic 4th of July Fireworks Cruise on "American Spirit!"

Cost: $100/per person.

Boarding is at 6:30 PM and we then set sail at 7:00 PM where the Captain and Crew will provide a relaxing cruise until it is time to position the boat for the grand fireworks event! The boat returns to the docks at 10:00 PM after the big show.

Please note that we are unable to get close to the monuments on the Mall due to no drawbridge access, as the schooner's very tall masts will not clear the bridge. However, you won't miss out on a great view of the fireworks - we've never had a single complaint! 

Helpful Information:

Food & Beverage: We do not offer food and beverage service on board for purchase. You're encouraged to bring along a picnic and drinks (beer/wine are permitted - no spirits, please.) Keep your menu super simple such as sandwiches/snacks. 

Little Sailors: Children are most welcome! You'll need to purchase a ticket for them, infants included. Strollers are permitted. Our Crew will stow the strollers below decks during the sail. There is no power available during the sail, so please be prepared with supplies for your children as we do not have the ability to warm food or bottles.

Restroom: There is a unisex restroom on board.

What to Wear/Bring: You may wish to bring along a lap blanket and be sure to dress for the weather. Even in summer, it can be cooler on the water, so bring along a jacket or sweater if needed. Wear closed-toe, soft soled shoes.

Cancellation: If severe weather (thunderstorms, excessive winds, etc.) prevents us from being able to safely leave the docks, we will issue a cancellation and full refund of your purchase. Please be advised that we will not cancel in the event of light rain/mist. Rain gear/poncho is then suggested. Cancellation notices are sent out via email typically two hours prior to the planned departure time.
