We’re gonna fly away, plan to go my way

I love it when we're cruisin together

Music was made for love, cruising is made for love

As the Hamptons are to New York, Martha’s Vineyard to New England, and the Napa Valley’s Wine Country is to California, when the summer sun hits the DMV, boating on the Potomac is a must…with Noire Waters.

On the Potomac River personality resides and its best features come alive in the immediate and surrounding areas of the District of Columbia. The preferred means of travel is by boat, no matter your destination.

Making waves - literally - the Black-owned yacht chartering service offers the most intimate, versatile, and curated boat experiences. Each charter is catered specifically to your liking including spirits, apparel, and accents of retro entertainment.

Made to “make noire memories'', Noire Waters is a true captain for the culture - starting with the signature yacht, Bowetic Justice, and the annual Juneteenth dock party. Owner Kevin Clarke and his partners Ashley Hixson and Abedeen Oshunubi lead the charge to make Black boating culture a land of its own.

With its existence a void is pleasantly filled for millennials, creatives, independent contractors, the melanated, and beyond. Where the specific groups have been overlooked and forced to fit in, Noire Waters is a standout in creating a space to sit back, relax, and celebrate.

For solo traveling or a staycation with friends, Noire Waters expands nautical adventures in an untapped manner.

Enjoy happy hour outside and waterside dining at Farmers Fishers Bakers or Nick’s Riverside Grill where the views are best. For variety, a few steps away from the water is a sudden modern posh sushi restaurant, Susheria, and Kafe Leopold, a quaint Austrian cafe tucked away in Cady’s Alley.

What To Do

M STREET SHOPPING | The M Street shopping experience is required in the Georgetown district. Top brands, household names, and unique shops lace the streets, like Major. An iconic sneaker boutique, Major is a must-visit in the area.
