There's enough hot, stagnant air in a DC summer to weigh down even the most buoyant spirits. If the lack of a breeze is threatening to take the wind out of your sails, blow away the humidity with this whirlwind Adventure: a two-hour BYOB sunset cruise aboard the schooner American Spirit, followed by drinks at Cantina Marina.
We'll start by heading to the Gangplank Marina on DC's Southwest Waterfront, where our LivingSocial first mates will be waiting to check us in. Next, we'll board DC Sail's American Spirit—a 42-passenger vessel and the district's only schooner—and let the currents take us away on a two-hour sunset cruise around the harbor. We'll shoot the breeze with the ship's seasoned captain, learn how to raise and lower the sails with the crew, and even have the option to take a turn behind the wheel.
Just because the boat is wind-powered doesn't mean we won't need fuel—so feel free to bring any beverages along for the ride. In addition, a savory snack spread (including chips and salsa, muffalettas, and mini shrimp or veggie po' boys) courtesy of Cantina Marina will have us feeling seaworthy. When we've come back to port, we'll head over to Cantina Marina and have a blast with a free Corona or margarita, plus the chance to purchase additional food and beverages. You can't beat the heat by staying still—so get things moving with an Adventure that's sure to whisk you away.
