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.
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 many other motorized and non-motorized vessels on the water and underwater obstacles, so it’s just not safe. It is also illegal to swim in the Potomac River within DC.
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. We do not have locker availability this season, but we do have dry bags available to rent at all our sites.
