Destiny Harbor Tours adds special trip for US Open

Destiny Harbor Tours has added the “Tour to see the Course” guided excursion to view Chambers Bay from the water during the U.S. Open, through Sunday (June 21).

The sightseeing tour will depart daily at 1 p.m. from Gig Harbor’s Maritime Pier, adjacent to Tides Tavern. Tickets are $60 per person.

“We’re excited to give people a chance to get out on the water and experience Chambers Bay from a unique vantage point,” Tom Drohan, captain and owner Destiny Harbor Tours, said in a release. “With the U.S. Open being played on a waterfront course, this was a natural addition.”

The 3.5-hour boat ride will take in the spectacular natural and man-made sights of South Puget Sound and will remain outside the established 3,000-foot federal security zone at the golf course.

A private charter for businesses or others wishing to reserve the entire boat is also available and will depart at 5 p.m. The group charter cost is $1,495 and departs from the Maritime Pier. Capacity is 34 passengers.

Passengers and groups are welcome to bring food and non-alcohol beverages aboard the vessel. A restroom is provided.

During the week, established Gig Harbor and Tacoma Narrows tours will depart Gig Harbor at 3:30 p.m. and Tacoma at noon.
