Description: Did you know The designation of DUKW is not a military pun - the name...
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 took our 4 children ages 6-13 to ride the "ducks" They loved it! The guide allowed each of our kids to "drive" the ducks. Also learned a little history.

We bought the tickets and looked on their website for the times. According to the website, they had rides starting at 10, 12, 2, and 4. We decided to go at 10 since... More

This is EXACTLY what you think it is! Refurbished military "Ducks" that ride through downtown and into the river. The driver keeps up a running commentary during the whole trip, commenting on everything from the downtown restaurants to the sites along the river. Lots of local info. It's corny, it's hokey and if you're willing to admit you're a tourist,... More

Had a wonderful time with my family. Great for people of all ages. Our party ranged from four to sixty-one years old. Our guide was very knowledgable and energetic. He let the kids take turns driving while in water. I've lived in Chattanooga my entire life and I still learned interesting facts while on the tour. Highly suggest taking the... More
