The Wharf Marina is accessible by Metro, car, bike, or taxi. Metro is usually the best way to get there.


Take the green line to Waterfront Station. At 4th & M Street go west on M Street then Left on 6th Street.  DC Sail is at Gangplank Marina, 6th and Water Streets, just to the right of the Cantina Marina and is 5-minute walk from the Metro.

Due to the ongoing construction in the area, parking is extremely limited. The use of public transportation is strongly suggested.

Take 1-395 North toward Washington, cross the 14th Street bridge. Exit onto Maine Avenue and keep to the right, which puts you on 9th Street, SW. At the traffic light, go straight through the intersection to Water Street and turn left. Our sailboats are located at 6th and Water Streets, just to the right of the Cantina Marina.  Classes meet at the big propeller along the seawall.

Take New York Avenue into Washington and follow signs toward Massachusetts Avenue. Before reaching Massachusetts Ave., turn left onto 7th Street, NW, and go south across the Mall. 7th Street ends at Water Street, SW. Turn left on Water Street.
