Always wondered about living afloat?

Take a look inside one of DC's most unique communities, now in our new home as part of Southwest's bustling new Wharf development! 


Few Washingtonians realize that Wharf Marina is home to the largest liveaboard community on the East Coast. Visitors can check out 20+ of the houseboats, housebarges, cruisers, and sailboats that people call home. 


Some of the highlights include:

  • Is boat living "green"?  You bet!  Some green boats grow veggies on deck, compost with worms, and supplement their crops with food from local CSA

  • Can you raise a family on a boat?  Absolutely!  Some boats are year-round homes to families.  Kids love living afloat!

  • Can you take your home on trips?  Of course!  Several liveaboard boaters love to spend weekends anchored at new spots on the river.

  • Where do you put everything?  See the unique and ingenious ways liveaboards maximize their small spaces!

  • Much more!



We love the Southwest DC neighborhood!  Our neighbors in the 20024 zip code will be able to purchase tour tickets at a discounted price.  Southwest is a wonderful quadrant that really has a small-town feel, even in the heart of the nation's capital.

Tour proceeds (after minimal expenses) will be used to support local charities in Southwest DC.  Proceeds from the tour will go to:

  • Amidon-Bowen Elementary School PTA

  • Potomac Riverkeeper

  • St Augustine's neighborhood programs

  • DC Sail youth programs

  • Southwest Methodist Food Pantry
