You will receive the tickets by email. For round trip, you will get two tickets; one will say “Board at the Wharf to National Harbor” and the other will say “Board at National Harbor to Wharf.” Bring both tickets with you to show the barcode. Note that we will be staying on the water taxi round-trip – we will not be getting off at National Harbor. The trip will be from The Wharf to Alexandria, from Alexandria to National Harbor, back to Alexandria, and finally back to the Wharf.
If you prefer, you can buy tickets at the water taxi kiosk, but it is better to call Martha ASAP before tickets run out, because it will be high tourist season, and many people will like to enjoy water taxi ride.
After Water taxi ride, we can gather together for Pro tactile gathering and Mexican restaurant at Wharf area. If you don’t like Mexican food, there are other types of restaurants nearby, but most of us will go to Mexican restaurant. There will not be any speeches or program, just dining together.
