About Destiny Harbor Tours
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!
