We have been over the bridge many times. It was fun to go under it. Very enjoyable. Some history, some nature, some geography.

Nice tour. Not too long and beautiful views. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Very informative. The gift shop is located a short way from the actual tour. Don't ask for the large ice cream cone. The small was the biggest I've ever seen. Pretty yummy also.

With sadness, my family did a celebration of life with the crew from Deception Pass Tours. They went out of their way to make this day pleasant and meaningful. Very thankful for the Captain and Crew.

We enjoyed the boat tour. It was great to learn about deception pass and the building of the bridge. It was just the right amount of time and information.
