The River Awaits You

Learn about the Anacostia River’s history, wildlife, the environmental threats it faces, and the solutions helping it realize its full potential through our Anacostia River Explorers boat tours. Supported by revenue raised from the DC Bag Bill, these guided, interpretative tours of the river typically last 1-2 hours and launch from Bladensburg Waterfront Park, Diamond Teague Park, or Anacostia Park.

Families and individuals interested in joining a tour should register for one provided through the Anacostia River Discovery Series. Schools, clubs, companies, congregations, and other groups should contact Emily Conrad to schedule a private tour.
