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!

Great views and history. You won't regret it. You will see so much wildlife to include harbor seals, jellyfish, and bald eagles. The views are unbeatable.

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.
