The Washington Marina is located in downtown Washington DC and is nestled below the National Mall, Tidal Basin and The Wharf. After departing the marina, you will begin to see DC from the Potomac River, offering views of national monuments, the Kennedy Center, Georgetown, bridges crossing the Potomac and so much more.
PLEASE NOTE: A Boater Education Card from the District of Columbia or your home state must be in your possession no matter what your age. This is DC law and is strictly enforced. You can take the boaters safety course online for free at https://www.boatus.org/districtofcolumbia/
Here are some of the top attractions and cruising places some of our local club members enjoy...
• Downtown Washington DC, national memorials, the Smithsonian and heritage museums on the National Mall
• Old Town Alexandria city docks for shopping, eating, festivals and more...
• Bike shares and scooter journeys around town
• Shops and dining of The Wharf and The Yards development districts and waterfront promenades
• Washington Nationals MLB Baseball at Nationals Park and DC MLS United Soccer at Audi Field
• Sites of the Georgetown Waterfront, Key and Memorial Bridges, the skylines of Northern VA and panoramic views spanning the city.
Enjoy your time in DC by taking in the attractions by land, but be sure to enjoy its national treasures as you cruise the Potomac river – a treat for local and visiting members that so few ever get to enjoy!
Independently owned and operated by Freedom Yacht & Boat Club of Maryland
Your safety is our No. 1 concern. So we give all our members unlimited training with certified captains. And if you wish to boat in a new location, they’ll show you the waterways.
"If you're into boats and being on the water, Freedom Boat Club is the best way to do it!!"
"The customer service is bar none, incredibly responsive with reservations and requests. The boats are pristine, another factor FBC's competition just can't hold a candle to. I have entertained family/friends on the sun deck and clients on the center console."
"The staff is amazing...Larry and the team go out of their way to accommodate the members."
Awesome Club! Awesome location! Awesome Staff! Keep up the great work! The boats are great for fishing or cruising. They also have a small inflatable and a sail boat. Keep up the awesome work!!!
