    Fantastic. Both Captain Denny and Captain Pete were terrific. We spent an hour and a half on the water. We saw the monuments by night and watched planes land at Reagan National airport from the water. Captain Pete has a wealth of knowledge. He was friendly, informative and engaging. Even my teenager enjoyed it! More importantly, these guys have Navy experience. You're in good hands on the water. Even before out trip, Captain Denny gave me some good advice on visiting DC. So glad we spent time with Embark DC.

    The experience is beautiful in cherry blossom. Less crowded than the ground and a different view point.

    Fair warning though it's very tiring and the wind in spring can get strong. It's stable so you do not need to worry about stability but you do fight against the wind.....

    The staff was friendly and the location was superb. However, the lack of parking was a real pain. We came 20 minutes early but took forever to figure out parking. They should really warn you beforehand.

    My wife and I had a great time on our boat tour with Jerry. It was fascinating to experience the DMV from the water.
    Having the whole boat and experience to ourselves, rather than being crammed into seats with a bunch of strangers, added immense value to this experience. The Cortina is big enough that you feel stable and safe but small enough to really enjoy the experience of being on the water.

    Best overall value SUP lessons in the national capital region. The provided equipments (helmet, PFD, paddle, SUP) are in an almost new condition. Greg (owner) is an excellent instructor. He has superb interpersonal skills when interacting with students.

    Incredible time out on the water with SeaDC. I've lived here for a decade but I've never seen the Wharf, the War College, Nats Park, or really anything else south of the Key Bridge from the water. Enjoyed some great snacks, great tunes, and a great time out on the river on a wildly quiet boat with some great people! Definitely coming back!

    The captain was so nice. We rented the boat for a surprise birthday, had the boat for about 2 hours and truly enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely rent again!

    One of Shaod's employees driving a Shaod company truck in DC hit my personal vehicle. Shaod's employee did not have insurance information in the vehicle, Shaod would not answer his calls, nor would Shaod answer my phone calls. He would not take responsibility for his company vehicle damaging my personal vehicle. I do not recommend this company because a legitimate company would have taken responsibility for their employee actions in a company vehicle. Further, the company vehicle had expired plates, which suggests Shaod's company does not conduct proper maintenance on their vehicles.
