Take this tour to see the Harbor from the water's vantage. We went with Captain Ethan to see the Christmas lights and despite the cold, enjoyed every minute. Captain Ethan shared a lot of local history with us, and my kids were thrilled to know the exact second that we were sailing over the wreckage of a sunken vessel. Gig... More

Gig Harbor is basically all about, well, the harbor. Captain Tom has a native's feel for the harbor, its nooks and secrets, and shares them all on this pleasant cruise. He expands the harbor to include Puget Sound from the harbor light to down past the narrows bridge, making history vivid and interesting, Well worth the time.

Relaxing Tour of Gig Harbor and Point Defiance. 2 hour tour is just nice, and a great value. Capt. Tom grew up in Gig Harbor and provides a local's perspective to the area's history.

We went on the 2 hour tour an a sunny Friday afternoon and loved it. Captain Tom knows the area really well and brings the local harbor scene to life. The relatively small boat (seats at least 20-30 I bet) allows Tom to interact with the group and answer any questions. This was a wonderful tour and pleasant surprise. I'd... More

Great Tour- took this tour last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Captain is very knowledgable about the area - tour is presented with humor and a great sense of history. Love that the boat owner/tour operator is a local guy that seems to be 'living the dream' with this tour company. My brother is a local and they have... More
