Wonderful day trip. On a gorgeous afternoon, Captain Tom gave us a terrific, informative 2 hour tour of Gig Harbor and Puget Sound. We saw harbor seals, eagles, and herons.

We chartered the Riviera for a day of cruising, and Capt Tom and Capt Lauren were exceptional! They were experienced, courteous and provided the perfect tour for our group. We cruised from Gig Harbor through the Ballard Locks, to Kirkland and back. It was a comfortable, smooth enjoyable tour. We saw sea life, beautiful ships and homes, and the views... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour with a knowledgable guide on a beautiful day, but, about half a dozen people missed the tour. After being seated on the boat they were booted out when some late arrivals--who had called in reservations--arrived. Moral of the story: call for your reservation. Check in procedure was a little disorganized and had us worrying about the... More

Destiny Harbor tours have introduced a larger more capable boat for their excellent tours or Gig Harbor and the Tacoma Narrows. The owner and Captain, a long time Gig Harbor resident, provided an entertaining and informative narrative to accompany the great water views of the Puget Sound. He chatted with each passenger along the tour answering questions and providing insights... More

Capt. Ethan really knows his stuff! I took the 2-hour trip out past the Narrows Bridge and it was GREAT! We saw eagles, harbor seals and blue herons. It was choppy and windy and a sunny day. The two crew members sailed us by many interesting sights and told us a lot of history and technical data (water temp, depth,... More

We were really looking forward to this boat tour and were not disappointed. I only wish I could add more pictures! Captain Ethan and mate Lauren were courteous, engaging, knowledgeable, and great story-tellers about the area. They were terrific at slowing down for pictures when seeing the wonderful wildlife like Great Blue Herrings, Eagles and harbor seals. The scenery was... More

Captain Ethan is not only knowledgeable about Gig Harbor, he is obviously someone who loves the area and enjoys sharing his knowledge. The boat is comfortable with plenty of viewing areas for everyone. I like the fact we were all made to feel important and not just paying customers. Captain Ethan answered all our questions, helped us with kindness and... More

Really interesting and informative trip, saw so much wildlife which was mixed with plenty of local and ancient history. A great intro to the area- seeing Gig Harbor from the water is a must!
