Navigating The Potomac River
Beginning in 1815, steamboats ferried passengers and goods across the river and connected the waterfront to Richmond and other points south via Aquia Creek. Today's riverside activities continue to include boat day trips, excursions, and pleasure cruises on the Potomac. For boat owners and enthusiasts, the Capital Yacht Club, Gangplank Marina, and day piers offer a place to dock and partake in the excitement of The Wharf.
