Memorial Day

Boating In DC welcomes you to Southeast DC, the Capitol Riverfront and the Anacostia River. Enjoy a paddle past DC's historic Navy Yard, listen to the roar of Nationals Stadium or watch a Friday evening concert at Yards Park - right from the water!

The Anacostia has lots to offer, and there are so many new things to explore in Yards Park for a post-paddle picnic, ice cream or place to relax and enjoy the sun.

Yards Park

Nearby Yards Park is a beautiful park with lots of activity and new things to do all the time. Before or after your paddle, we recommend you checking out everything the park has to offer. Visit and plan your paddle around other events that might be going on!

DC Metro

The nearest metro stop is Navy Yard (on the green line), and is just a short walk South on First St. SE (toward the riverfront!). We are on the dock with all the colorful boats and friendly staff in orange shirts!

DC Circulator Bus

The Circulator Bus is an easy way to get to Georgetown, and only costs $1! Heading toward Georgetown, get off at K St. NW/Wisconsin Ave. Keeping the River to your left, we are a short walk under the bridge. By the water is a great place to look for us!


A GPS will usually find “Diamond Teague Park” OR the intersection of Potomac Ave SE and First St. SE. There is plenty of street parking available, especially on the weekends, and a garage at the Nationals Stadium. Just make sure you check the game schedule - public transportation is much easier than driving during baseball games!

Winter is Over. And it's About Time.

02 May 2015

You have been waiting for this. All winter long, you hunkered down in an office and at home or outside under what feels like 1,000 layers of clothing that, no matter how heavy, never QUITE did the trick. Your bones ached from the chill. Well, the wait for warm weather has withered. You live in DC, and the winter weather is GONE. It's time get the creak out of your frosted, aching bones and limbs. All of that cold is off to places like Antarctica where it belongs. It's time for you to leave the house and the office. It's time to take a deep breath of fresh air. Get in the car or on a bus or a bike and wind down that road or trail until your feet hit the gravel of our yard, then the wood planks of the dock. As the sun rises and sets over the Potomac, you're floating, paddling blissfully away from the daily chaos that is city-living. For an hour, or a day, you have created a small oasis for yourself, for your family and your friends. You are hitting the reset button, and it all starts here at Boating In DC.
