What you'll do

See Gig Harbor from the water! We will depart from the Maritime Pier and cruise slowly around the shoreline, enjoying the homes and boats along the way. We will circle around the Harbor several times so you won't miss a thing. HOBBES is heated and protected in the cabin and cockpit so we can cruise in any weather and you will stay warm and dry. Venture out on our large topside deck and enjoy the fresh air when it suits you (we have railing around the entire deck area). Don't miss your chance to see the beautiful shoreline of Gig Harbor on HOBBES!

So honestly, I can be a little freaked out with being on the water in any kind of boat, but Frank's command of the vessel, and background with the Navy, were all I needed to feel safe. Karen's offer to make our favorite drink, along with the perfect appetizer tray was what really made me feel welcomed and valued. This is an experience that everyone can and should do because our host's are experts in personal service. We are looking forward to inviting friends and relatives to have the same wonderful experience. This was a special gift for my husband and I to have that made our wedding anniversary a very special event.

Frank and Karen were amazing hosts to me, Claire and the other guests. They demonstrated great knowledge of Gig Harbor, where we took the tour, as well as sailing technique/expertise. We hope to take another experience with them next time we’re back in the Pacific Northwest.

Went on a date night around the harbor with Frank and his wonderful wife Karen. They were both so incredibly sweet. My partner and I fully recognized how different the experience could’ve been with hosts that weren’t as great as them. I would highly recommend taking advantage of any of the experiences Frank and Karen have to offer. I will definitely be back when I’m in the area!

This was a surprise birthday present my wife had arranged for us. It was our first time to Gig Harbor, but Frank, his wife, and co. made us feel like old friends. He was very professional in his role as captain, yet they were all very personable in conversation. It was reassuring and relaxing. The first part of the tour was getting acquainted with Hobbes, their beautiful and cozy 42' Catalina, followed by the safety briefing. The main tour itself consisted of a few laps around the harbor to awe at all the Christmas lights - on boats, houses, the streets, and the initial lighting of the Christmas Tree town event. We were given our choice of drinks and some homemade cookies to keep us warm. We all had spectacular sights, good laughs, and an all around great experience.
