Riverboat Cruise on the Potomac on Nina's Dandy.

Update: On June 12, 2007 I took another lunch cruise on Nina's Dandy! This time the tide was more cooperative, and we were able to take the primary route, up the Potomac, under the bridges, among the monuments.

I've added the new primary track route to this same map, using a red track. The first track showing the high-tide alternate route is in green, and was recorded on October 14, 2006.

Dandy Restaurant Cruises operates two river boats on the Potomac for lunch and dinner cruises. We had a very nice lunch on the river, watching the sights sail by, including Washington Reagan National Airport, The US Naval Research Lab, Bolling Air Force Base, and the National War College.

Normally the cruise goes up to Georgetown to get a good look at the monuments, but this day (10/14/2007), the tide was too high for us to fit under some of the bridges.

This day happened to be the dedication of the new US Air Force Monument, so you can see at the north end of our path on the Potomac, we sat and circled for a while. We were waiting for a flyby of the US Air Force Thunderbirds. They never came, but we did see them later in the day.

The boats are moored in Old Town Alexandria, and are available year round for lunch, brunch and dinner.
