Did the afternoon 2 hour tour and it was great. Glorious sunny day with only five of us on the boat. Captain Tom was an excellent guide. Plenty of local wildlife to see and views of Mt Rainier and the Narrows bridge. A definite must if you are visiting GIg Harbor.

33 of us enjoyed 2 hours in great weather learning more about Gig Harbor and the nearby coasts than I've picked up in 10 yrs of living here! Wonderful commentary on harbor features, then fun ride under the bridges, back up to Point Defiance and a breathtaking viewing of Rainier. Seals, eagles, jellyfish, GREAT commentary, it was truly delightful! Will... More

We had a group of 10 and had made last minute plans to go to Gig Harbor. We were too late to make a scheduled boat ride and the night time fireworks ride was already sold out. The captain said he'd take us out for a ride anyway!! It was great. He gave great commentary on the area, made sure... More

Great crew; reasonable price; we saw porpoises, eagles, seals. We took the two-hour trip that goes underneath the Narrow Bridge, definitely worth the bit of extra money. Highly recommended.

We had reserved both of Destiny Harbors boats for a post-wedding party trip for a group of 50+. We needed to accomodate small children and people with somewhat limited mobilit. Captian Tom was exceptional in helping us to design our tour and he and his crew exceptional in providing the tours. I would highly recommend Destiny Harbor for your Gig... More

Spent the day in Gig Harbor and saw the sign for a 4:30 harbor cruise. My out of town family were so tired of walking, we decided to go. Ended up only 4 people on the tour, but Captain Tom gave us a great ride. We saw bald eagles, the Tacoma Narrows Bridge, seals, but the best part is the... More

Our party of 9 took the 2 hour tour out of Gig Harbor. We had a great view of the harbor and it's boats and learned a little local history. Out through the narrows and around Pt. Defiance the Captain pointed out wildlife and gave us good photo ops. We all had a very good time. Highly recommend.

Our party of 4 had a private tour of Gig Harbor with an interesting and informative narrative about the history, geography, fauna and flora of the region. Captain Tom was extremely skillful in piloting the boat and we enjoyed perfect weather for a "pre-season" boat tour.

Took Tom's 2 hour tour and though I have lived here awhile and boated int he same waters, I learned a few new things about Puget Sound around Gig Harbor I had not know before. It was relaxing and fun. Went with a church group of about 40 people and it was very comfortable. Saw lots of wildlife and interesting... More
