We were on this amphibious boat ride through the limestone ice ages and were already simply amazed,when out of the water jumps this flying Asian carp. It must have been three feet long and lt cleared the water by at least ten feet. The lady next to us peed herself and cried hysterically the rest of the ride.

It's all good until they stop in the woods and get you to buy some cards. It definitely ruins the mood of the trip. One of the Ducks broke down in the water so we had to pull them to shore. That was actually fun....and the rocks were really cool to look at. Nice ride but the stopping to pan... More

The Original Ducks are are Dells staple and a must do if you visit the Dells. Tour are a lot of fun and informative on the area also. The drivers tell all of the cheesy tour guide jokes, but that's ok and makes it fun. The kids really had a fun time. They loved splashing into Lake Delton and getting... More

There are several boat tours now in the Dells but none of them give you the tour, the excitement and fun like the Original Ducks. They are going on 70 years in the Dells in 2016. When I was growing up these were the only boat tours in the Dells and I remember the excitement of racing into the water!... More

I was recently on the Original WI Ducks again on a recent fall trip to WI Dells. Because of the nice fall we had been having, they were still offering 6 tours per day, even in early November! I was on the 11:00 tour on a recent Friday. It was on the cool side, but the ride was enjoyable with... More

My two children and I have been riding the Original Wisconsin Ducks every summer (sometimes twice each summer) since they were 1 and 2 years old. They are now young adults. Taking a trip to the Dells simply would not be the same if we didn't ride on our visit. We literally smile from the time we purchase our tickets... More

This was a unique, for us, tour of the area with its lake and wooded areas. The guide helped make it both entertaining and informative. We had never seen the area before, and certainly not in an amphibious vehicle, capable of good speed on the land and water. All passengers were asked if we wanted fast water entry from land... More

Our tour guide was very funny and informative about the area. Please be aware that the seats are filled to capacity so you might feel squeezed in. The tour is about an hour long on land and water. I felt very safe during the ride. Warning: if you sit in the front or back of the duck you might get... More
