"We were all very happy with the experience and felt very relaxed, so relaxed by this vacation that I could find a comfy spot to lie down on the rocks in the middle of the festival."
OLYMPIA, WA, December 18, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Give the gift of an experience – a Labor Day Weekend Cruise on Washington's Puget Sound. This amazing two day, three night adventure getaway is only offered once this year from August 30th to September 1st, 2019. Leave your cares and cars behind!
Cruise aboard the historic Mosquito Fleet Steamship – the Virginia V. Boarding takes place at the Foss Waterway Seaport, Tacoma WA. For the next 4 hours sit back and enjoy the majestic scenery of the South Puget Sound. A local historian will be aboard to point out all the exciting landmarks and orate about the historical events that took place in these majestic waters. Watch for local sea life as you travel south and if you are lucky you may even spot a whale or early migrating salmon.
Check- in for your cruise is at the Foss Waterway Seaport with complementary admission to tour the Museum. The 4 hour afternoon cruise arrives in Olympia WA at the start of the 3-day annual Olympia Harbor Days Tugboat Races & Festival. Enjoy learning the history of the vintage tugs, steamships and tall ships, tribal cultural arts, kid activities, live music, great food and hundreds of high quality arts and crafts booths stretched out over the seven blocks of the Olympia Waterfront.

On Sunday you can secure tickets to watch the World's Largest Vintage Tugboat Races prior to boarding the Virginia V for your 4-hour sunset cruise back to Tacoma (and your car).
One couple from Canada told us "We came to the festival on the Virginia V after hearing about the event and cruise. We thought it would be fun for us and our two friends to do together. We were all very happy with the experience and felt very relaxed, so relaxed by this vacation that I could find a comfy spot to lie down on the rocks in the middle of the festival."
This is a great getaway for adult singles ($399) or couples ($499). So give someone you love the gift with a lifetime of memories – or purchase the package for yourself and a loved one.
