Houseboat Tour Planned at the Gangplank Marina

Capitol Hill has its garden tours and Georgetown has its historic homes tour, but here in Southwest, we're going to have a houseboat tour.  On August 13th, the homes at the Gangplank Marina will be open to the public for the first time for a houseboat tour from 10am to 2pm. The event is sponsored by the Gangplank Slipholders Association, which represents the live-aboard community at Gangplank, as well as the Port of Washington Yacht Club.  Advance tickets are $11 per person ($18 on the day of the tour). Proceeds from the admission fee will benefit the Earth Conservation Corps.  According to the press release, there is a special offer from tour operator DC Harbor Cruises, which will offer a package including a 60-minute cruise and Boat-Home Tour ticket for $25 (cruise ticket prices by themselves are usually priced at $30). Available cruise departure times are 12:30pm and 2:00pm. Combination tour and cruise tickets will be $32 on the day of the tour. Tickets can be purchased here. In addition, Cantina Marina will offer a 10% discount to tour goers. More information about the Southwest DC Waterfront Boat-Home Tour can be found by visiting here or sending an email.

The tour site had a glitch for a few hours this morning that gave people an error when trying to purchase tickets, so if you were unsuccessful earlier, please try again!
