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

Girlfriend trip, group of 5 women and we all enjoyed the 3PM trip with Destiny Harbor Tours. Captain Tom was a knowledgable guide - we had great weather and saw lots of wildlife which he expertly spotted and pointed out along the way. The boat was comfortable and super clean and felt very safe and stable for the size boat... 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

Decided to take the tour on a whim. Turned out to be one of the best decisions of the day. Wife's friend was visiting from Toronto. Best boat tour I've experienced. I have done one in New York (circle tour); Paris (not harbor tour); Tokyo; Baltimore; Solomon Island; Japanese lakes; etc... it's the combination of weather, scenery, guide knowledge, (maybe...

On a recent trip to Seattle ,I enjoyed a great day with my daughter and her husband in the Gig Harbor/Puget Sound aboard The Destiny. Captain Tom is a lifelong resident of the area,and is full of many interesting stories and facts about this beautiful area. A trip well woth the time and money.

We had a fabulous time on the Destiny Harbor Tour! Captain Tom and his wife Mary were great hosts. It was a glorious day and we learned a lot about the harbor and the narrows. How awesome is it to be under that fabulous Narrows Bridge and hear about the history? I highly recommend this tour and as a matter... More

Simply one of the best tours we've ever taken ( and we tour a lot). We took the two hour tour. It was a highlight of our four days in Gig Harbor. Captain Tom was a great guide; the boat is big and very comfortable. Seeing the underside of the Narrows bridges and learning about the engineering that built both... More
