A great tour - fun, beautiful scenery, safe and informative. I'm a local. I learned a ton! One really gets a good impression of Gig Harbor, Galopping Gertie and the environs of the south Puget Sound.

We got the whole boat for $595 for 2 hours. It was a great way to give our leaders some fun bonding time on a great day! Our guide told us the tale of the three bridges, showed us the beached Harley, and wildlife (birds, deer, jellyfish, and harbor seals). It was a smooth ride on a light breeze day.... More

The 4 of us took the Harbor Cruise on July 4th afternoon with two other couples that were locals. Captain Evan and the crewman were courteous and safe.They were both very helpful to us getting on & off the boat. Captain Evan had a wealth of knowledge about the harbor area. We all enjoyed the cruise very much.

Excellent way to take a tour of Gig Harbor from a waterside perspective. Have lived here for years but never seen the town from the water. Excellent way for visitors to see the beauty of the "Harbor"

My wife and I took 3:30 tour out of Gig Harbor. Our Excellent Captain was Ethan! He took us on a beautiful, educational and very fun tour of Gig Harbor, under the bridges over the narrows, past Salmon Beach and more. We saw Bald Eagles, cranes, seals, Hawks, beautiful boats and amazing homes. The tour was great and so was... More

It was a fun tour with lots of local knowledge and lore thrown in. They made an effort to find wildlife include sea lions, seals, blue herons and bald eagles. A couple of fun stories about the Tacoma Narrow bridge and the waters surrounding it. It turned out to be informative and fun and just the right amount of time... More

Went on the daily tour from Gig Harbor with my wife. The tour boat operators are really professional and polite. I find the price is little too much but good for a one time experience. We couldn't see Mt Rainer due to clouds but all other points were clear and visible. The boat is mostly always almost next to land... More

My mother & I were pleasantly surprised at being able to book a tour from Gig Harbor, even though it was early in the season. We ended up being the only two passengers on the boat, but Captain Ethan was just wonderful and you would never have thought he might want to be doing something other than giving a tour... More

Our captain Ethan and crew member George accommodated us in a last minute excursion complete with pick up service! We had rented a vrbo vacation in Gig Harbor rental pre season and I called Destiny Harbor for a tour. They came to our dock to pick us up and we got a super sweet private tour. Learned so much about... More
