Here are some commonly asked questions about boating with us. If there is anything that you don’t see here, feel free to contact us.
Oh, and you can’t jump out or go swimming from any of the boats. It’s not because we don’t want you to have fun, but there are all sorts of other motorboats and underwater obstacles, and it’s just not safe.
When can I take out a kayak or SUP in the spring?
We try and open as soon as the weather gets warm. However, we wait until the water temperature gets above 60 degrees. This usually happens sometime in the middle of April in Washington, DC.
Also bring a snack, water, and a plastic bag to pick up trash or put your wet clothes in. Ziplock bags are useful to seal up anything you really want to keep dry. At Key Bridge Boathouse, we have lockers available for those who need them. Bring your own lock or borrow one of ours for $2.00. We are working on setting up storage at Ballpark and National Harbor soon.
