Gig Harbor

Gig Harbor Travel Guide

For an aquatic perspective of Gig Harbor, rent a kayak, canoe, paddleboat, or powerboat. For more surefooted types, there's also the relatively newer sport of paddleboarding. Guided and non-guided excursions are available, in addition to lessons and a kayak camp for kids.

Paddle out to tiny Cutts Island, keeping an eye out for seals; later, wind down the day with a beach stroll on Kopachuk’s shore, looking for sand dollars.
