Boat, Water Sports and Bicycle Rentals at the Washington Sailing Marina

Line Title


The Washington Sailing Marina offers bicycle rentals all year long. The marina is conveniently located along the Mount Vernon Bike Trail. A twelve mile ride south will take you right up to the front doors at George Washington's Mount Vernon home, while a six mile ride north across the Memorial Bridge will put you at the foot of the Washington Monument.

We start renting at 9:00 a.m. every day, with the last bikes going out at 4:00 p.m. Our bicycle rentals are first-come, first-served. All bikes must be returned by 5:00 p.m. (winter hours may vary).  Our day rate for the bicycles applies to any rental period longer than four hours.

Ride the City avoids roads that aren't meant for biking, like highways and busy arterial streets, and steers bicyclists toward routes that maximize the use of bike lanes, bike paths, greenways, and other bike-friendly streets. Click here for bike routes near the Washington Sailing Marina

Cruiser bicycles rent for $11.00 per hour or $35.00 per day. They are single speed, have high handle bars and a comfortable seat. A great bike for the Mt. Vernon trail.


BOAT and WATER SPORT RENTALS - 7 days per week

Our boat rentals begin when the water temperature reaches a safe 60 degrees F. and run until mid-October, weather permitting. See Old Town Alexandria from the water with a few friends or set your course towards Hains Point. You can do either in one of our Flying Scots. Sail leisurely around our lagoon on a breezy afternoon in one of our Aqua Fins. Our rental dock opens at 11:00am, with the last boats going out at 4:00pm. All boats must be returned by 5:00pm. Boat rentals are by reservation only. On-the-water certification from a recognized sailing school is required; in lieu of a certification, a written test can be administered at the marina.  Please read the boat rental agreement regarding rules and regulations for boat rentals at the marina.
