Captain Tom and Destiny Harbor Tours are a Gig Harbor attraction not to be missed. The boat is clean and safe. Tom knows the local history as well as current information about the Gig Harbor area. He shares this in an informative way throughout the tour. He pointed out wildlife along the way. We saw homes that could only be... More

Capt. Tom was awesome--very personable, informative, and attentive. My husband & I were visiting from Tucson, AZ, so the two-hour tour was the perfect amount of time to see Gig Harbor from the water and spend an afternoon touring the local area.

Had a beautiful day to tour Gig a Harbor and the tour did not disappoint. Spectacular views, and amazing show by many, many seals! Even a baby seal was spotted, which was so neat to see. Would recommend.

An enjoyable boat tour of the harbour! It was a last minute trip to Gig Harbor and looking for something to do and found this tour and was lucky to have space. It was a nice afternoon on the water and would recommend this tour. Spectacular sights! Price was reasonable. Do this tour when visiting Gig Harbor.

What a perfect afternoon. As it so happens, my mother (a Gig Harbor local) and I got a private tour of the Sound. The weather was lovely and we saw several bald eagles and seals. Captain Tom's talk was informative and interesting. Really couldn't have asked for anything more.

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
