Did you know The designation of DUKW is not a military pun - the name comes from the terminology used for military vehicles in World War II; the D indicates a vehicle designed in 1942, the U meant "utility (amphibious)", the K indicated all-wheel drive and the W indicated two powered rear axles. Although technically a misnomer, DUKWs are often referred to as duck boats. Another popular nickname was old magoo or simply magoo. Though the origin of this term is unknown, it probably refers to the odd shape of the vehicle. DUKWs became known as ''Ducks'' and are still in use, as well as purpose-built amphibious tour buses, primarily as tourist transport in harbor and river cities.

We rode Daffy Duck with tour guide Steve and had a blast! It was a fun and informative trip. My mom was with us and she really had a great time. It has become one of my favorite things to do here in Chattanooga!

I did a ducks tour in San Francisco and had a blast, But This Ducks tour was just ok. I was happy with the tour and the caption of the tour I just have the San Francisco tour to compare it to and this one is just not as good. My grandson was given a chance to drive the Duck... More

Great ride along the river! The tour guide was informative and very funny. Our son was even able to drive the boat! The tour lasts just over an hour and and it flys by. A must for all ages!

Go to Groupon for a good discount. Good for all ages. Make sure you can climb up a few stairs to enter the amphibious duck. We were under cover so sun was not a problem. Our guide, Steve, was very friendly and knew the area well. His narration was interesting and entertaining.

went with Groupon and really enjoyed it. Loved our tour guide he was very fun. BEWARE you will fly into the water down the ramp it is a little scary but very fun. We were given the chance to drive the boat which was fun there was no age limit so anyone could drive the boat on the water!

My wife and I were hesitant at first. We are glad we did it. Our guide Steve was great he is an entertaining and informative about the history of Chattanooga on land and when you hit the water by river. Most of your time is on the River. We want to bring our kids and do it again.

First off, our tour guide, Steve, rocked! He was super friendly and very knowledgeable (as I'm sure they all are). We first learned about the DUKW boats themselves and then after that, learned all about the history of Chattanooga. It was truly fascinating! I grew up in East Tennessee and never knew much about it. I learned quite a bit... More

We purchased this tour using Groupon so it was a good deal...probably the reason I still rated the tour as "average". If we had paid full price, it would have been below average. We started pretty close to on time, although it was a little late because of waiting on some other passengers who were late. After a brief drive... More
