Found this tour while sitting at breakfast with my husband on the harbor. So happy we booked it - the sights, the cruise and the history and stories were amazing. Our kids, aged 10-17 all enjoyed it too! Gorgeous weather we had too! And bald eagles galore!

I cannot recommend this for children. It was a lot of facts about gig harbor. We did see some seals & a couple of eagles which peaked their interest.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Thank you for your comments Susan. Many younger children seem to benefit from an early, positive experience of being on a boat. In my case, I remember the few times I was on a boat before age 6 or so. I have dreamed of being on boats ever since and run a boat company now. Our ride is an amazing gift and opportunity for many, many youngsters.

The history sharing was fantastic. His knowledge was great. The seating on the boat was hard. Could have been more cpmfy

Thank you for your review. We take you out for a tour in an authentic, ex-navy boat. One cure for the hard seats is sitting on one of our life jackets which is allowed. We are glad that you enjoyed Captain Ethan's vast, local knowledge!

Thank you Erika, One of the big reasons we started our business was so that young and older could get on a boat ride and have the adventure. I still remember the boat rides I had as a very young child!

We especially enjoyed being under the Narrows Bridges and all the historical trivia that was provided by the tour guide. The boat was very clean as well as all the flotation devices. Nothing was in disrepair. We learned a lot about the area where we live in the very best “out of the classroom” experience.

Me and my boyfriend were traveling across WA and this was one of our activities we needed to do! We had lunch at Anthony's Restaurant, which had amazing calamari and clam chowder. Ethan and Owen were the crew and they did a great job at keeping us safe, comfortable, and informed. That day we were seeing potential rain and heard thunder. Ethan was very nice and kept us updated with what happens if it rained. Thankfully it didn't! Instead we saw sea lions, bald eagles, blue heron, and a rainbow. The boat ride was lovely as we heard the wild stories of the Narrows Bridges and learned about the waters and communities that live there. Gig Harbor has spectacular views that you don't see in Wisconsin. Loved the tour and appreciate the crew for their service, highly would recommend this to anyone!

This boat tour was a great way to see Gig Harbor! You go through the narrows, under the bridges, and around the puget sound. We saw about 80 seals on the ride. It did rain pretty hard for a good half of the tour, but captain Ethan was very prepared for this, and he had a cover for everyone to stand under, an extra rain coat available incase anybody needed it, and he gave us some great inside tips for staying dry on the seas! I would recommend this boat tour to anyone wanting to explore Gig Harbor. We did not realize this event was about an hour away from Seattle, so if you are staying in Seattle, and are interested in doing this tour, I do recommend you rent your own car for your trip, seeing as how the Uber ride was $130, and after 5 PM no lyfts or Ubers will cross the bridge due to a toll we did not know about ahead of time. Overall this tour was a lot of fun, and if you’re lucky you’ll get to see some cool wildlife while on the water. I recommend it to everyone!

We highly recommend this tour. We came to visit Seattle on our honeymoon and found this tour about an hours drive away. The captain was fantastic. He was entertaining and so knowledgable. The tour flowed seamlessly and the two hours flew by. We learned the history of the Tacoma Narrows Bridges, we saw bald eagles and seals, and we learned all about the houses on Salmon Beach. What a great experience!

We appreciate your kind and detailed review. Thanks for taking the drive down from Seattle. Congratulations on your wedding!!!
