About Us

Turn your event into an unforgettable occasion as you cruise along the Potomac River aboard the Cherry Blossom. The Cherry Blossom is a recreation of a 19th century Victorian riverboat, complete with ornate iron railings and a plush interior of brass and mahogany. Her two interior salons are heated and air-conditioned for year-round comfort, while the third deck is open air, offering spectacular views of Old Town Alexandria and the Washington D.C. skyline. She was designed and created exclusively for private entertaining, no matter your party size. Our average party is 125 passengers but we are able to accommodate for as few as two and as many as 350 people. She is the perfect choice for a variety of receptions such as stand-up cocktails, an elegant buffet, or a seated dinner. The Potomac Riverboat Company will be glad to assist you in customizing your event from the menu, theme party ideas, entertainment, and much more. We work with only the finest caterers and vendors in the area in order to provide our clients with the services they want and deserve. We are willing to put in the time and effort to give you the absolute best day you could ever imagine, with memories that will last you a lifetime!

The Cherry Blossom is docked behind the Torpedo Factory Art Center on North Union Street, located at the foot of Cameron Street in Old Town Alexandria. She also has special docking privileges at National Harbor, Gaylord National and Mount Vernon Estate and Gardens.
