1. Can we bring our own food?

Si (yes)

2. Can we bring anything we want to drink?


3. Are you open year round?

It may be tough times during the winter, but we are going to stay open all year. 

4. What if it's really cold? Do you have blankets?

We do have blankets on board, but dress warm and maybe bring someone to cuddle with. Also, feel free to bring a hot beverage. 

5. What if it rains?

Oh, it will rain. If the rain doesn't scare you and you arrive prepared and willing to ride then I will row. On those dubious days I will contact you to talk about our options.  Unfortunately, I will have to occasionally cancel scheduled cruises because of strong winds or family emergencies. 

6. How many people can go on the gondola?

Six people can fit in a gondola.

7. What if we're late?

Don't be late. Just kidding. I understand things happen. I recommend arriving at least 10 minutes early. If you are late please understand it may cut into the time of your cruise.

8. What if we have to cancel?

Please try to cancel at least a day in advance, so I can attempt to fill the empty time slot.

9. Where do we meet you?

Gig Harbor Gondola is an extremely small operation. I do not have an office (yet) and I do not have a staff (yet). I operate out of the Gig Harbor Marina & Boatyard and on their property there is a big, red food truck trolley called the Trolley @ the boatyard. It's a great spot to grab a bite to bring with you on the ride and it's near restrooms that you may use. I will meet you next to the Trolley.
