Mount Vernon Excursion Cruises

  • Details

    A visit to the home of George Washington is a great American adventure everyone should experience, especially when you can do it by boat! Spirit provides the only round-trip Mount Vernon cruises direct from Washington, DC. Enjoy a leisurely narrated riverfront tour as we cruise to the Mount Vernon estate. While on board, take in the beautiful scenery along the Potomac and purchase a bite to eat from the snack bar.

    Each round trip ticket includes a cruise to the estate, admission to Mount Vernon and your cruise back to Spirit’s dock in Washington, DC. The cruise to Mount Vernon typically takes 1.5 hours. You'll have about 3 hours at the estate before boarding for our 1.5 hour return cruise to DC. Take a guided tour or explore the estate grounds on your own.

    One-way excursions and 40-minute turnaround cruises are also available aboard Spirit from the Mount Vernon dock.
