Washingtonians for almost two decades, Boomerang’s founders loved taking advantage of all the unique events DC had to offer throughout the years. They realized, however, that safe & affordable transportation was seriously missing from DC’s exciting atmosphere, and an idea was born!  After much planning and preparation, Boomerang Tours opened durng the spring of 2006.

Quickly becoming a favorite thing for locals in the know, Boomerang added a bus to its fleet each year (including a limo) while increasing its list of nightlife and excursion event offerings throughout the DC area.

Once it was established that Boomerang was here to stay, the founders decided it was time to make a splash by working on a new project which resulted in the Boomerang Boat!  Opening in the spring of 2012, their vessel has provided a variety of unique cruises on the Potomac River by incorporating live DJs, nautical cocktails, gorgeous sunsets, and panoramic views of our nation’s best monuments.

It wasn’t long before plans for a second ship began to develop! Spring forward to April of 2013, and the Boomerang Pirate Ship was born! With fire engine red sleek paint and the sails blowing in the wind, this powerful vessel was custom built as an addition to the ever growing Boomerang fleet.  Providing family fun treasure hunt cruises during the day, along with their signature party cruises at night, the Pirate Ship has been providing endless memories ever since!

So, welcome aboard! Our reliable drivers, experienced captains, friendly crew, enthusiastic hosts, and fearless pirates are thrilled to meet you for an adventure like none other!

Attended: Daytime Party Cruise on the Boomerang Yacht
If you are on edge about doing this--DO IT DO IT DO IT! This was the highlight of our weekend! We had a blast-- granted our group of guys and girls (10 of us--all friends from SC)--we are loud, love to dance, have a great time but it was the BEST part of my 25th birthday in DC! The view is amazing and we were in the right state of mind after! Def recommend the 5:30 time too! Sunset/perfect time/we ate dinner right after near the harbor!! Before we checked out the monuments. It worked out perfect and it was sooooo much fun--DJ was awesome!
