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 sights 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 sights of Gig Harbor on HOBBES!
Other things to note
HOBBES is completely enclosed in the cockpit area for boating in all types of weather. She is also heated inside and has a head (toilet) for guests. There are also seats inside if weather dictates. There is a lifeline all around the entire boat topside so you may wander about as you desire.

Frank & Karen and their lovely daughter were great hosts! The cruise around the harbor was perfect. We were lucky enough to have an almost full moon and the clear sky to enjoy it. Frank & Karen had fun stories and kept the conversation moving along nicely. The refreshments were appreciated and enjoyed! Thank you guys for letting us enjoy the lights with you!

Magical! What a wonderful way to see Christmas lights. Frank & Karen are delightful hosts. The rain stayed away the day we sailed so we were able to stay on deck the entire time. Thoughtful touches and stories of Gig Harbor made the experience perfect. We will definitely sail again when back in the area. Thank you Frank & Karen!

Frank and Karen were great hosts! I would love to come back and see the orcas and the sights during the daytime. They were very accommodating and hospitable! Would love to come back next time I visit Washington. 😊

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.
