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!

Captain Ken and his wife, Gay, made our boat tour and ashes scattering experience one that our family is eternally grateful for. They were kind, compassionate, thoughtful, knowledgeable and professional every step of the way. They went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was taken care of with memories to last a lifetime. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Ken and Gay were great hosts and took us for a beautiful ride around Gig Harbor. They have a deep connection to the area and shared a lot of stories and local knowledge. We saw a bald eagle, blue heron and seals. The bonus was some great family photos and on-board treats. A fantastic way to spend the afternoon - we highly recommend a trip on the On Time!
Wow - it was so beautiful and interesting.
Cpt Ken and Gay were so accommodating. Our somber trip to release ashes was made very special. Thank you!
Captain Ken and Gay take a boat ride and turn it in to an experience!!! Our trip was booked last minute and they still managed to have the boat decorated, food & drinks, and made sure every bit of our day was special! My 3 & 7 year old had a blast and have not stopped talking about all the fun facts they learned and critters they saw!! You get your money’s worth and so much more!! Thank you!!! Can’t wait to come again!
