Description

Let's check out the fall foliage!

I've reserved a 65-foot double decker yacht (Boomerang) for us, and made special arrangements with a captain and crew to take us down the Potomac for a 2 hour cruise (compared to others' 50 minute rides) that:

(Upper Deck)

Highlights the panoramic view of the colorful trees surrounding the Tidal Basin, Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial, National Mall, and Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial!

• Along the way, we'll get a great view of Washington DC's skyline as we pass by famous landmarks to include Watergate, the Kennedy Center, and Lincoln Memorial

We'll also cruise up to the protected Potomac Gorge, which is home to countless species of trees and wildlife

Sunset is at 5:03pm, so the timing will be perfect for a spectacular view of the colorful trees reflecting off the water. Bring a camera, and make use of your panoramic mode feature!

Discounted Fall Foliage cocktail drinks will also be provided for our group!

(Georgetown Harbor)

DC is a city of trees, with some 300 tree species spread out in its vicinity. Each fall, the parade of foliage colors here wows visitors and residents alike. New England may draw more visitors for its fall foliage, but it's far away, and they won't see the capitol's majestic monuments and parks surrounded by the colorful leaves. Colors typically peak in early November, which coincidentally falls in line with the day of our charter. =)

(Sunset)

We will check people in at 3pm. Please account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. The boat will leave promptly at 3:30pm. Following the charter, we will adjourn at Orange Anchor for food and drinks!

The normal charge for this 2 hour cruise is $40. We've got an early bird special for this event of $20! The first 70 paid sign-ups, or those who pay before Sun. Oct. 29th (whichever comes first) get the early bird price! After that it will go up to $25. We have a LIMITED number of spots so make sure to RSVP early AND make payment to secure your spot and get the early bird price! To make payment, please follow the steps in the "Payment" section of the event posting.

So come join us, tell your friends, and let's have a great evening taking in the Washington DC's panoramic skyline featuring the lovely DC fall colors!

P.S. Please note the boat does not serve food, and restrooms are available.

BOARDING POINT

We will be leaving out of Georgetown Washington Harbor. The boarding point is 1/2 block away (you’ll see the waterfront) from the address listed. I'll be on the pier on the side closest to the Georgetown Waterfront Park (in front of the Fiola Mare restaurant)! Look for the red flag (1 foot x 1 foot in size) with the word "ACK" on it! If it's crowded, you will need to keep your eyes peeled for the flag, but I will be standing exactly where described (in front of Fiola Mare restaurant on the boardwalk pier).

METRO & PARKING

The closest Metro is Foggy Bottom (Orange, Blue, Silver lines), about a 13 minute walk. I suggest Metro / cabbing / Uber'ing if you can. I also recommend using wmata.com for travel planning. Don't forget to account for Metro, traffic, and parking delays. If you are driving, you will need to find street parking or a garage. I recommend using parkopedia.com for garage parking planning.

EVENT CHECK-IN

Please be on time. If you are late (arrive after the start time of 3pm), you risk the possibility of not being able to join us for the event. I will have a master list of all those that have paid. It’s not required, but I recommend printing out your payment confirmation email as a backup (if you are not on the list, you will be required to show it). When you check-in, your RSVP will be listed under the name of the PayPal or credit card account used to make payment. Typically, this is your LEGAL name as shown on your driver's license. Sometimes, it may be under a company name if you set up your PayPal or credit card account that way. If you are not sure what it is, please log into your PayPal account (it will say "Welcome, [your account name]" at the top) or your credit card account to find out. If you are RSVP'd under someone else's payment, please use that name for check-in.

REFUND POLICY

Since this event is paid for in advance, all sales are final unless the event is canceled or rescheduled. If the event is canceled or rescheduled, an UPDATE will be posted at the top of the event posting, and the UPDATE will also be sent as an email to the yes RSVPs. A full refund will be submitted no later than Wednesday of the following week. For rescheduled events, you must let me know within 3 calendar days of the UPDATE email if you are unable to make the new date... no refunds will be given after that time. Thanks for understanding. =)

TICKET RESELL / TRANSFER

Similar to a concert ticket or a football game ticket, you are free to sell / transfer your ticket to someone else if you are unable to attend. Work out any payment between yourselves, and have the seller only send me (the organizer) a message letting me know the first AND last name, and Meetup profile URL (if a member) of the person taking your spot (please also copy them on the message). To obtain their Meetup profile URL, go to their profile from the mobile website or your computer (not the app), and copy & paste the URL from your browser. I host a lot of events and groups, so please let me know the event name and group name the ticket transfer is for. You must let me know by the RSVP close time of noon on the day of the event.

WEATHER

Should inclement weather (e.g. snow storm, hurricane, etc.) affect our event, we'll need to reschedule or cancel. If any one of the following is not available for service due to inclement weather, we'll need to do so: Metrorail is not running to all stops; Uber (X, SUV, etc.) is not running or available at no more than 2x standard rates; venue(s) are not open. I'll post an UPDATE to the top of the event posting by 12:30pm on the day of our event with the details.

SPECIAL NEEDS

If you have any special needs (e.g. wheelchair, dietary for events with food included, etc.), let me know in advance (a week or more before the event) and I will do my best to accommodate (message me through my Meetup profile, do NOT comment on the event posting). If you let me know the day of the event, I cannot guarantee that I will be able to help. Thank you for understanding and I appreciate the courtesy of a heads up!

RAIN POLICY

Since the lower level of the boat is enclosed, this event is rain or shine!
