Pirates Have Landed at National Harbor
Each cruise runs one-and-a-half hours with the first half-hour spent on boarding activities followed by an hour of sailing out on the Potomac River. Boarding takes place at the Capital Wheel Pier at National Harbor. The cost is $22 per person for ages 3 and up, $12 for children 2 and under. There are also group ticket rates and birthday adventures.
For adults, there are B.Y.O.G. (bring your own grog) cruises that run on Thursdays (6 and 8 p.m.), Fridays and Saturdays (6, 8 and 10 p.m.) Cost is $25 per person. The cruises feature swashbuckling fun with dancing, pirate vests and tattoos. Small coolers are welcome.
“We are delighted to be able to add this unique and fun pirate ship experience to the exceptional line-up of entertainment at National Harbor,” said Bruce Gudenberg, vice president of marketing for National Harbor. In addition to the iconic Capital Wheel, soaring more than 180 feet with views of the D.C. monuments and the National Harbor Merry-Go-Round, National Harbor provides a wide array of shops including Tanger Outlets, restaurants and night life. The National Harbor MGM Casino is scheduled to open in late 2016 as well.
“This is a walkable mini-city that has something for everyone,” added Gudenberg. “From stores for children such as Build-A-Bear and Peeps to great restaurants and a whole street, Fleet Street, of music and bars for adults, to our events that include movie nights on the waterfront, there’s a lot here to experience.”
There are a lot of activities available and yet, some visitors prefer to stroll the waterfront, or simply sit and relax and take in the spectacular sunsets. National Harbor has it all.

The free assessment uses a simple Body Mass Index (BMI) calculation, blood pressure measurement and a short six-question questionnaire to make participants aware of their risk factors for chronic kidney disease.
Participants will receive brief consultations with physicians and dietitians to learn about kidney disease, as well as general nutrition and wellness guidelines.
Individuals not at risk will be given educational materials about maintaining good health, while those at risk will be directed to further screenings and advised to talk to medical professionals. Those at risk are encouraged to follow up with their physician and to maintain regular primary care visits.
Overall, kidney disease affects 26 million people – that’s one in nine Marylanders and one in eight in Baltimore. One in three American adults – 73 million people – are at risk for kidney disease, and the risk increases to one in two over the course of a lifetime.
