      ☀️🚤Party Bowrider $100hr Weekdays / $200hr Weekends Private Charter🍹🏝

      I really enjoyed my ride on the Potomac. The boat was in very good condition and Captain Shane was very professional and hospitable. The Cpt. had good vibes and was down to earth. I was able to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. It's good to view the city from another perspective w/o the city traffic. Captain Shane was able to provide brief facts and history on the sites and structures you'll see along the river. I took this charter alone but I'm definitely looking forward to it again. Next time I'm definitely bringing friends and drinks to enjoy this social and relaxing experience.
