Swan boats have arrived at the Tidal Basin and paddle boats rentals are open for business! Save yourself a major headache by making boat reservations and purchasing guaranteed parking in advance. Of course, the best time to paddle is during the cherry blossom season, so plan ahead and you’ll be able to enjoy this activity despite the crowds.

Paddle boating is a fantastic afternoon activity and one of the best ways to view the monuments around the basin. Don’t forget to wear your sunblock!
