Event Details

Summer! Don't go!

Come celebrate the end of summer at Paddle the Potomac: An Alternative Happy Hour on Thursday, September 1 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. 

Join Potomac Conservancy and our friends at Rock Creek Conservancy and National Park Conservation Association at Thompson’s Boat Center in Georgetown for an evening of fun and twilight paddling. 



Tickets are just $7. That is over half off! But hurry. These paddle sell out fast!

Tickets are non-refundable but are fully transferable.



Be sure to bring a little money with you on the water because our friends at NautiFoods, the city’s first food boat, will be out on the water serving delicious summer treats. Best of all, 20% of the NautiFood's proceeds for the evening will go to our co-hosts!

All are welcome, but space is limited. REGISTER TODAY and reserve your spot in a canoe, kayak, or stand-up paddleboard. This event is appropriate for all skill levels. Beginners and experts are welcome!



Be prepared to have fun! Site leaders will brief you on basic safety measures to ensure that everyone has a safe and fun time. Waivers will be provided beforehand and on-site.

Please remember to dress appropriately for the weather (rain or shine) and wear clothes you won't mind getting wet. Be sure to bring a reusable bottle to fill up before heading out on the water.

Be sure to arrive by 6:30 to be able to get out on the water. 



Walk/Bicycle: Thompson’s Boat Center is directly off of Rock Creek Parkway adjacent to the intersection with Virginia Ave NW.  You can walk East on M. St towards Pennsylvania Ave then head South down the Rock Creek Trail.  You can also walk East down K. St under the Whitehurst Freeway to the trail.

From Foggy Bottom Metro (0.5 mile): From the rotary, walk West on K street and then head down towards the waterfront. The Boathouse is directly before the Georgetown waterfront restaurants.

Driving: Thompson Boat Center features a metered parking lot.  Space is extremely limited.  Extra parking can be found in the surrounding Georgetown neighborhood but spaces may be limited.

There is also a parking garage attached to the Lowe’s Movie Theatre.
