Whether you’re a veteran boater or don’t know your kayak from your canoe, you’re in store for an unforgettable experience on the Potomac River! Enjoy a breathtaking view of the Washington D.C. sky line while sailing, kayaking or enjoying a stand-up paddleboard around the iconic Daingerfield Island. This Marina is also a spectacular spot to sit and watch planes land. Prefer two wheels to the water? Rent a bike and explore the nearby Mount Vernon Bike Trail that takes you from the front doors of George Washington’s Mount Vernon to the foot of the Washington Monument. End your adventures with a picnic in the park or stop by for an overly indulgent burger, shake, or beer at the delicious new burger joint, Triple Craft (check their website for seasonal hours).
The Washington Sailing Marina, located in Alexandria, is the premier facility for one-design and small sailboat racing in the D.C. Metro area, and host to the Potomac River Sailing Association, Daingerfield Island Sailing Fleet, Sailing Club of Washington, Georgetown Sailing Team, and the National Yacht Club.
Staff was very helpful and went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. I normally store my boat on a trailer at this marina and decided to rent a slip when hosting out of town guests over the 4th of July. The ease of accessing the boat was a huge time savings over the launch/retrieval process when using a trailer. I will definitely rent a slip from this marina again.
