“This is a dream come true,” said Captain Tom as he took Riviera out on its first-ever sunset cruise earlier this week. A Korean family gave permission for us to take pictures while they enjoyed the boat ride. I was honored to go with the group and capture some of the moments!
Riviera now offers regular sunset cruises in the summer. It’s an affordable and comfortable way to experience Puget Sound! See Mt. Rainier, the Narrows Bridge, Henderson Bay into Horsehead Bay and more! Return during twilight as the sun sets on Gig Harbor.
This three-hour cruise takes place from 6 – 9 p.m., departing from Maritime Pier in Gig Harbor. You’re welcome to bring food and drink on board. Tickets cost $60 for adult, $50 for seniors and $40 for kids ages 5 – 12. Kids 4 and under are free. Contact Riviera at 253-225-6306 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information and reservations.

Riviera also offers a four-hour Puget Sound day tour and private charters. Check out their website to see some of the types of charters, including weddings, memorials and events such as Seafair. Riviera’s sister company, Destiny Harbor Tours, offers two-hour boat tours from Tacoma and Gig Harbor. Thank you! — Liz
