Hello, I'm Captain Tom, Destiny Harbor Tours was created so that nearly everyone could have access to the wonders of Puget Sound easily and at a very reasonable price! In Tacoma we are located on Thea Foss Waterway, Downtown Tacoma at Dock Street Marina on the water side of the Museum of Glass. Summer season we offer multiple daily guided sightseeing boat tours that take you up-close and personal with all the wonders of Puget Sound. You can see: Bald Eagles, seals and sea birds, mountains, ships, tugs and lighthouses. Knowledgeable captains will tell you of the wildlife, history and ecology of all that you see. Don't miss the boat! We are open year round for group charters and by appointment for 4 or more people at regular, per-person prices. Don't Miss the Boat!

Captain Ethan was just as cute as can be and quite knowledgeable! It was an absolutely fantastic day and the sea lions were playing and we saw 3 bald eagles, 2 herons and a red tailed hawk.

Captain Ethan was amazingly knowledgeable and made the tour so fun and entertaining!!! Would recommend to everyone. We brought our two teenage sons and 3.5yr old daughter and they all loved it. Lots of seals and wild life too!

Had a really good time with the wife while CPT Tom gave us the tour of gig harbor and surrounding area. Would recommend to anyone and plan on doing it again this time on the Tacoma side.
