Taking The Ferry in Washington



Potomac River Boat Company is a company in Washington D.C. that offers river cruises. I went on the Lady Josephine to reach Alexandria!

One of the vessels used for the Alexandria-National Harbor Water Taxi service connecting Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, National Harbor, and Gaylord National Hotel. This vessel is USCG certified for 99+ passengers. – website


+ A short 30-40 minute cruise

+ A great view of the Old Town as you approach

+ One way is $8, round trip is $16

+ Feels like you are back in the 18th century modes of transport!

The Alexandria-National Harbor Water Taxi operates daily between Old Town Alexandria, Virginia, and National Harbor, Maryland Alexandria is a charming historic seaport nationally recognized for its abundance of 18th and 19th century architecture, chic boutiques, national retail stores, fine art & antiques galleries, historic attractions, and award-winning restaurants. – website
