This is a great way to see the high points of Seattle and have fun doing it. The "ducks", are driven by captains with names like Beau Dacious, Captain Chaos and Helen Wheels who are great and informative guides while keeping up a banter that is fun from start to finish. Unfortunately, our tour included a group of little old... More

This was truly worth every penny!! The Captain was a hoot and this is definitely not your average tour duck. This is not for the stiff upper lip because this will bring on mounds of laughter, humour and song...Yeah song .....truly a refreshing way to see Seattle in an hour and half.

Obviously very touristy but also a lot of fun. We had a very entertaining captain, yes they are Coast Guard certified captains. Best part was on Lake Union. Very scenic. Got to watch the seaplanes take off and land. Lots of boat traffic and a lot of really cool houseboats.

This was one of the most fun things we did while in Seattle. Our guide was fabulous! You get a little city tour and then drive right into Lake Union! These amphibious carriers are amazing! While on Lake Union you get to view the houseboat community up close, including the one from sleepless in Seattle. The ride is fun all... More

So much fun! We had a wonderful driver, who had us laughing and smiling most of the trip. The tour got us to see places we would have missed otherwise. Great for all ages.

We've been on the Seattle ducks before. I remember it being a great way to visit Seattle and see more of the surroundings. The ducks are definitely one of those things that the amount of fun you have depends on your guide.... ours was just OK this time. She thought she was funny but I would say about 80% of... More

So much fun! The drivers are amazingly funny and informative. Loved learning about the city and how we ended up in Lake Union. It was July 4th, so the lake was buzzing with boats and police!

The first time we visited Seattle (3 years ago), we took a land based hop on-off bus tour; this time we took the land/water 'duck' tour and it was a lot of fun. The tour guide (can't remember his name) was a very fun and funny guy - he was quick and witty. This tour basically covered the downtown area... More

Ride the Duck was an awesome start to our Seattle visit. Captain Philip was funny and informative - he was able to keep everyone engaged for the full length of the tour. The tour was on schedule and took us through interesting parts of Seattle. The captain was a lot of fun and pointed out interesting facts like the house... More
