Loved seeing things from the water

Enjoyed the bits of history shared by the "crew."

Nice weather. I wouldn't call it Cherry Blossom cruise as the trees were so far away!

Capitol River Cruise is the only operator who didn't have anyone at the boarding area so we had to ask around. We didn't know where to wait for the boat as the address list their boating office,not the boarding area. We just follow the crowd. They can enhance this experience without added cost by just posting a more detail instructions at the boarding area. Currently, they have a hard board that says the time of the next boat. We didn't notice it earlier as there were several operators there.

Good length, informative, nice to sit at tables

It was a little confusing when lining up to board, but otherwise all was good and smooth

Apr 27, 2015 Craig PA, United States

While it was busy, (being a very moderate day weather-wise), it was well run and moved along pretty smoothly. A very simple boat, plastic chairs, but very stable, plenty of room and the day we went was the very best day for viewing the cherry blossoms!
