It was my first time in Gig Harbor, and I'm so glad I did this tour as part of my visit. The very informative and funny Capt. Ethan took us out and gave us the history of the area, which I found fascinating. We also saw a ton of wildlife, including two bad eagles and a ton of seals!

Captain and mate arrived promptly at 3:15 to start the check in and boarding process which went without a hitch and we departed the dock right on time! Only had 10 passengers which allowed all plenty... More

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
