Make a splash in our Nation’s Capital aboard the DC Ducks, 1942 amphibious transport vehicles used to support and carry troops during World War II. Today they are a great way to see Washington by both land and sea. Winding our way first through the monuments, the Mall, the Capitol and museums of the Smithsonian before splashing into the Potomac and under the flight path at Reagan National Airport. Its fun for all ages!

Lots of fun for our kids, us, and my father-in-law. Captain Bucky was a fantastic guide, brimming with personality, and we had a great time! If you've ever wondered what it would be like to launch straight from land into water in the duck, it's amazing! Definitely the most fun part!

I have been to DC numerous times and wanted to show my children the highlights without an exhausting walk in the heat. I picked this tour and was glad I did. The kids had a great time. The highlight of their experience was when the driver let them "drive the duck" in the river. Lots of fun and educational, too.

We have been on Duck tours in Boston and Miami and they were both entertaining and informative. The key to an enjoyable tour is the captain/tour guide. On other duck tours the captain was outgoing, entertaining and engaged the passengers constantly. The DC Duck Tour itinerary was very good as it passed all of the significant sites in DC as... More

Really a great experience to start off our trip to DC!! I knew this would be a big hit for the kids and my husband, and sure enough we had an awesome time! With limited time in DC, this is a sure bet to see some things that you may not get to see otherwise. Lovely time on the Potomac... More

My two 12 year old grandchildren and myself loved this trip. Sitting under the flight path of planes was the best part but it was great fun floating down the Potomac.

I've had a very nice trip with the Duck. The captain was very friendly and had a lot of information about the city. He gave extra attention to the little passengers and made sure the atmosphere was relaxed with a lot of humour. All of the important landmarks were seen with again a lot of information. It was also a... More

Enjoyed the history and narration that went with the tour. The captain was very interesting and knowledgeable about the sites around DC on the tour. The boat ride portion was a little underwhelming. It was cool being in an amphibious vehicle, but the sites you saw from the water left a lot to be desired.

It was sunny day, it was hot but we did have a lovely tour on DC Ducks! Captain Gorn was hilarious! Very engaging, energetic, so informative yet humoristic! We really enjoyed our tour!

It was really fun and informative. Captain Steve was the one in charge of our tour. Really funny, kind towards the kids, and answered all our questions. Never sounded like he said te same things several times a day. Thumbs up for him!!
