The price includes packaged snacks with assorted beverages available for purchase. Don't miss out on this wonderful educational cruising experience.

Moments in Black History on the Potomac River
Did you know:
That among the first settlers on the Potomac River in 1634 were three men of African descent?
That many early residents of Congress Heights in Southeast Washington DC worked at the U.S.
Naval Gun Factory (at the Washington Navy Yard) or at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory.
That Anacostia, in Southeast Washington DC was once inhabited by the Nacotchtank Native
Americans (the first settlers to inhabit the area.) It was once known as Uniontown and became
Washington's first "suburban" community.
You will learn all about these events and more during our fantastic narrated three hour "Moments in
Black History On The Potomac River" cruise.
This cruise is a multi-media full immersion experience. Guests get to see not only the way the
Washington waterfront looks today, but through graphic illustrations and narration, get to see the way it
was during the 19th Century and understand the experiences of African-Americans living here during
that era.
