About Us

National River Tour Co., LLC is a family owned business started in 2006 by Captain Bill Ross. Captain Bill is a seasoned sailor and boatsman who knows a lot about Washington, D.C. and the rich history that surrounds the area. Ride with Captain Bill or one of the other amazing captains and listen as you are treated to a LIVE-narrated tour of Washington, D.C.'s historic monuments and sights. Interact with the captain for a fully immersive experience that you won't forget.

As a guest you get to ask questions and interact with the captain, while enjoying the waterside perspective of Washington, DC. Other river tour companies have a recorded narrative with the captain far away from the guests.
