A little difficult if you're handicapped but an all around fun ride with a silly but fun driver. Watch out for the big splash!

A good time for locals and visitors to Seattle. Entertaining and interesting with a water tour of Lake Union. The drivers are funny, and if you're lucky enough to have a fun crowd of passengers it will be memorable.

Be prepared to learn about Seattle's most important attractions in a crazy way. The driver of your Duck is more an entertainer who will inform you about the city in nice way. Entering the water with this cracy vehicle and enjoying Seattle's skyline is really nice. Don't forget to watch the (hidden) hands waving a warm welcome to Seattle Duck-riding... More

As frequent travellers, we often avoid these typical tourist trap activities...they tendntomgetnoldmandnredundant butbfor a variety of reasons we decided to check this one out...so glad we did..we've done the ducks in a variety of places so the novelty of the amphibious machines was not a big deal but still kind of cool...however, for us the real treat was the tour...

I went on this tour at the urging of my sister and wasn't expecting much. It was actually lots of fun. Thankfully only one child had a stupid quacker and she slept the whole tour. The driver Goodliver was very interesting and entertaining. The trip on the lake was fun, fun, fun. A nice relaxing tour that left me smiling.

Entertaining does not begin to describe the experience! We had the most fun, riding around town, singing along with the tunes, and laughing constantly. You learn a little about Seattle, and allot about comedy! The staff were friendly and funny, and made us feel very welcome. This is one attraction I could do again and again!

Was worried when we first started off as it was rush hour traffic, however our driver quickly got us out of the jam and made his way down to the pier area. Driver was excellent, not over the top annoying funny but at the right times got us all quacking and having a great time. I was very impressed with... More

Got onboard with Capt. Jack Tupp and had a blast. Enjoyed the ride through the city plus the float around the lake which provided a great view of the floating houses, sea planes, and the city skyline. Buy a Quacker for your kid at your own risk!

The duck tours are a great way to see Seattle but more importantly, they are operated by crazy people. The driver we had was laughing and joking throughout the entire ride. We even had duck calls to blow on and the driver had a variety of hats he would don throughout the tour. Great fun.

Buy the "Quacker" and quack your heart out. Our captain, Lou, was hilarious and really got everyone in a great mood - and he was full of good info about the city. Great ride, kept good pace, never a dull moment. Really good value.
