Owner:Captain Ken

Ken and Gay, a husband and wife team, bring the best of two worlds together. Gay worked as a tour guide for a rental company for over seven years and has toured hundreds of people in our local harbor. Ken received his license from the U.S. Coast Guard after attending the Flagship Maritime Training Center in Tacoma. No easy feat to have a Captains license. With that you are assured you are in qualified hands on the water. He retired from UPS as a driver with over 25 years of safe driving meaning he never had an accident. So welcome aboard! We will give you an amazing experience on our beautiful waters. Our highlight last year was spending hours watching a humpback whale and a white sided dolphin right outside the harbor. Let us help make your time on the water memorable. Our Charters are CAPTAIN ONLY!
