Book transient slips and moorings at The Wharf Marina in Washington D.C -- a world-class waterfront destination for residents and visitors alike. This remarkable mile-long neighborhood along the Washington Channel of the Potomac River reestablishes Washington D.C., as a true waterfront city and destination. Boaters will enjoy having easy access to residences, offices, hotels, shops, restaurants, cultural uses, marinas, and public areas including waterfront parks, promenades, piers, and docks. Even better, the Wharf Marina is located just south of the National Mall, offering easy access to Washington D.C.’s most beloved monuments and memorials, art venues, sporting events, and more—as well as plenty of transportation options to explore the rest of the District’s attractions.

On-site, The Wharf boats more than 300 slips at various locations spanning across its vast promenade, as well as moorings that can accommodate vessels up to 45', and commercial piers. The marina can accommodate vessels of all sizes, including superyachts. Boaters will have access to a host of important amenities, including floating docks, showers, laundry, a ship store, ice, bait & tackle and more. There is also a wide array of retailers, grocers, delis and hardware stores within walking distance from the docks. Whether you are looking for a weekend getaway or month-long stays, The Wharf Marina promises to be a great experience.

Please hail us while inbound on channel 16/72 for assistance. We can also be reached at the marina office at (202) 595-5165. ​ Starting from the Woodrow Wilson bridge, follow the Washington channel North. You'll pass Alexandria off your port side through a fairly long no wake zone. Continue following the channel and Reagan National Airport will then be off your port side. Shortly after passing the airport, the channel will split. Follow the channel to the RIGHT, which brings you into the Washington/Anacostia channel. There will be another channel split shortly after that, where you'll follow the channel to the LEFT. Hains Point will be off the Port side, and the National War College starboard. You are now in the channel for The Wharf. A 6 mph "No Wake Zone" starts at the beginning of the channel, and continues throughout the entire Wharf Marina. As you enter the beginning of the channel, the first building you come across is the Pier 4 office building which is a fairly large, mainly glass building that will be on your starboard side. Directly behind that Pier 4 building is a smaller brick building. The marina office is located inside on the 2nd floor. After you pass Pier 4, you will come across Z dock. Shortly after Z dock, you will see 90 slips of live-aboard residents. Continue up the channel. You will pass the recreational pier, then Capital Yacht Club Marina, and then the District Pier. Continue past the glass building at the end of the District Pier and you will see brand-new docks just ahead that are reserved for transient guests.
