Mother's Day Cruise

May 7, 2024 Update:

Our Mother's Day Cruise is sold out to capacity for this year. While there is a "Join Waitlist" option when you open the link in the red box as you scroll toward the bottom of the page, it is a bit unlikely that we'll be able to accommodate your registration as we already have nearly 70 families on the waitlist.

We will be hosting a very similar event celebrating Father's Day! Please click here to be delivered to our Father's Day Cruise web page for information and registration. 

Thank You!

Treat your Mum to an afternoon cruising on "American Spirit!" Pack a goodie basket of her favorite treats and bring along the whole clan! This is a family-friendly priced event for just $40 per passenger. 

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.

Location: Please click here to view a map of our dock location. The address is The Wharf Marina, 650 Wharf Street SW, Washington, DC 20024. You can also download a .pdf of our dock location that has a link to the Google Map by clicking here.

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.

Payment Information: Full payment must be made at the time of registration. Pending registrations without payment will be auto-cancelled by the system after 15 minutes. Please have your payment information available at the time of registration.
