Two, free waterfront walking tours offered each week during the summer – rain or shine:
HARBOR HERITAGE: THEN AND NOW
Saturdays, 10am – 12pm
June 9 – August 25
Take a family-friendly journey through Gig Harbor’s maritime history. Learn about our founding families, pioneering industries, and the wildlife and natural resources that brought us all together. This tour offers a glimpse of what life was like in the early Harbor days and how activities from the past have influenced our present. Meet at the Maritime Pier next to the Tides Tavern.
FROM SKIFFS TO SPIRITS
Wednesdays, 5:30pm – 6:30pm
June 6 – August 29 (except Wednesday, July 4)
Enjoy an evening stroll along the waterfront while learning about our past – from net sheds and our historic fishing fleet to the effects of prohibition in the harbor, yesterday and today. This tour is geared for adults and will end with an optional tasting at our very own Heritage Distilling Company.
The Waterfront Walking Tours received a 2016 Excellence on Main Award for Outstanding Promotional Event from the Washington State Main Street Program.
