On Time Tours and Charters is a culmination of many years of experience on the Pacific Northwest waters. Tony and Erin, a husband and wife team, bring the best of two maritime worlds together. They have lived in 'The Harbor for the last 26+ years.
Captain Tony recently retired from the Port of Seattle Police Department after 25 years in law enforcement. Most of that time was spent on our local waters as a Police Diver and Marine Patrol Officer. He received his US Coast Guard license after putting in all the required sea time and graduating from Flagship Maritime, in Tacoma, WA. No easy feat receiving a Master Captains license! With over a decade in the rescue / response profession, you are assured you’re in qualified hands on the water!
First Mate Erin has, and continues to work for one of the Nation's largest shellfish farms. She loves sharing her extensive knowledge of the marine environment with our guests!
Second Mate (In-Training) Zoie was raised in Gig Harbor and has been actively involved both on our waters or continually learning about local marine life along its shores throughout her entire life. She has an attention to detail and wants to be involved with necessary vessel responsibilities. She is well under way in her voluntary Mate training in the following areas: Collision Avoidance, Fender Deployment/Stowage, Concession Serving, Cleat Catching, Dock Line Assistance, and homeport post-cruise Vessel Cleaning. She is always under the careful eye, tutelage, and control of Captain Tony, but has earned her right to assist. We are honored to have her as an in-training crew member. (Her internship is strictly limited to weekends and/or summer time season voyages.)
So, welcome aboard! We're looking forward to sharing our amazing waters with you. You haven't seen Gig Harbor until you've seen it by boat!!!
