$20 round trip still seems a little pricey.

At least you get something for it - I don't understand the folks who pay $25+ for a parking spot.

"A little pricey"...It's a bloody rip off. Leave it up to corporations to try and turn a buck and have their greed screw up what could have been a good thing.
I would recommend swimming or, for $1.50, taking the metro.

It wouldn't be that pricy from the National Harbor, without metro access, maybe. It's definitely pricy from somewhere like Alexandria, when you have easy metro access to and from the ballpark via L'Enfant Plaza.
I find it hard to believe they're going to find enough people willing to pay those exorbitant fees to pay for the boat fuel. They're literally going to have maybe a dozen people for some weekday games.

So I can not come from southern Maryland in my 18 foot boat and dock to see the Nats? Why is the pier only for the big $ boats? Typical DC blunder.

There's the dock down at Buzzards Point, and will eventually be one at the Yards Park only a couple blocks east of Diamond Teague.

FYI, Parking at National Harbor is $3/hr. So tack that on to the total price if you're planning to take that route. At these prices, I don't see this lasting for long without subsidies. Its just too easy to get there so many other ways.

The Nationals thank you for that...

Well it's true. Even on weekday game days where the stadium is filled, like the Red Sox series, there hasn't been a parking/metro issue like some claimed there would be prior to the park opening.
Let me see, you can either take the metro from King Street to the Navy Yard, which takes 29 minutes (including transfer) according to the Metro schedule, or take a 40 minute boat ride. The Metro is $5.60 roundtrip, the boat ride is $20.
Not much of a choice, unless you REALLY like boats.
