The Wharf Boathouse

The Wharf Boathouse


Located along DC’s Southwest Waterfront, The Wharf Boathouse brings all the charms one could ask for in an urban oasis. Kayakers and paddleboarders will enjoy on the water views of the new crystal high rises reflecting the sun over fleets of beautiful yachts docked at The Wharf Boathouse’s expansive marina. There will also be ample opportunity to enjoy the shade, tranquility and wildlife nestled just across the waterway on the banks of the East Potomac Park.

We can’t wait to launch you on your Potomac River adventure from our new location!
