What you'll do
See the lights from Gig Harbor! We will depart from the Maritime Pier and cruise slowly through the harbor. See the beautiful Christmas tree in Skansie Park. Enjoy the many boats decorated for the season around the harbor. We will cruise all the way around Gig Harbor several times so you won't miss a thing. Many more lights appear throughout the month as people decorate for the season. HOBBES is heated in the cabin and cockpit area so we can cruise in any weather and you stay warm. We will also be adorned in festive lights. Our bow display will have a cartoon depicting Calvin & HOBBES from the beloved comic strip. All the way to the top of the 60 foot mast we will have lights depicting a Christmas tree. All these lights make us an attraction for the folks on shore so many will wave to us. If you are lucky you may even hear carolers or bagpipes from the shore. Enjoy the season as never before. Don't miss your chance to cruise HOBBES!

This cruise originates and terminates from the Maritime Pier in Gig Harbor. We will cruise in front of Tides Tavern and the public pier. Both of these should have many festive lights. We will also cruise near Anthony's Restaurant at the end of the harbor which is lit for the season. Curious seals and other marine animals may also visit us during our cruise.
