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!

Views, booze and music—another winner
Sun, Aug 30  3:30 PM Male 40-49 Local Individual

A perfect way to spend an afternoon in Washington, DC, is a cruise on the Boomerang, and Sunday’s excursion—with musical accompaniment provided by Broccoli Samurai—was just one more example of this. Starting out at the Georgetown Waterfront, the boat moved through both the Potomac and Anacostia rivers toward the Navy Yard and back, providing unique views of DC landmarks augmented by the relaxing atmosphere on board. The bar staff and crew were excellent, efficient, attentive and enthusiastic. Kudos to Heady Entertainment for successfully promoting another terrific event.

Great first experience!

This was my first boat tour, and it was a perfect day for it. The weather was amazing, the staff on the boat funny and friendly, and the band (Broccoli Samurai) was on point. There were people who were fans of the band and also some who had never heard of them. I think everybody else enjoyed them too. Drink prices were very reasonable and the selection was great. I would highly recommend this tour to any of my friends and plan on doing another one soon!
