Tom agreed at short notice to take 3 of us out round the harbour and into the strait to catch the setting sun. Local to the area, Tom spent an hour telling us the history of the harbour and the boats within it. The former US navy launch is steady as a rock even at speed. In the strait we... More

The two-hour tour was everything you could ask for: spectacular scenery, picture-perfect views of the two Narrows Bridges and Mount Rainier, wildlife sightings, and a super-knowledgeable captain. I learned so much about the history, ecology, and wildlife of the area - plus some cool local tidbits. The captain knows how to share his genuine enthusiasm about this beautiful area. The... More

Great 2 hour tour of the Gig Harbor and Puget Sound. Captain very knowledgeable, answered questions and gave an excellent presentation of the area history. As a plus, we saw 2 bald eagles and some seals! Great day on the water, I'd highly recommend.

This is by far one of the best boat tours I have been on. Capt Tom did a fantastic job giving details during the entire tour. Wow, the sights were just stunning!

If you are visiting Gig Harbor, you need to see it from the water! Captain Tom will show you boats, bridges, currents, historical buildings, wildlife, and more, as you learn all about this wonderful area. We have also been on the Tacoma tour and it is great, too! Plan your visit around an afternoon on the water with Destiny Harbor... More

This two hour tour was wonderful! Tom was so well informed about ecology, architecture, boating, and animal life; his enthusiasm was infectious as he shared.
