There are two aspects of the Ducks that you should know about. First, it is a 90-minute ride through the city and on Lake Union, and you learn all sorts of interesting historical and cultural info about the city. It's a good basic orientation to Seattle for those of us who had never been there before. Second, it is an... More

Such an entertaining ride, very informing and the guides are so happy and upbeat. I would recommend this ride to some older folks out there as some things that you learn on this ride kids wont know about or understand..

It was a fun ride in a amphibious vehicle, where you get to see some very different parts of Seattle and our driver was very funny, playing some good music, interacting with the tourists and having fun with the duck quackers, which everybody gets, as well as changing hats while changing sceneries and music, really funny. You get also to... More

This is loud, silly, and really good fun. We joined a party on the 1940's amphibious vehicles. You all get duck quackers, and are encouraged to make as much noise as possible as you drive round town with a running commentary from the driver (Captain Albert Ross......geddit). Then the vehicle drives into Lake Union and we had a beautiful quiet... More

We decided to do this as it was the only tour that went to the Sleepless In Seattle House. We purchased the tickets where the ducks pick up across from Macys and the lady in the ticket booth was actually really rude and down right unfriendly. I wish I got her name. Management it was the 16th Dec and we... More

We had a great laugh. Okay it's really great for families but we just went as a couple to get a quick oversight of the city and it was great fun.Wrap up warm in winter though - its cold. The driver was amusing and really worked the audience so not the usual scripted tour by a bored guide. Well worth... More

We took the tour during a Christmas visit, it was a blast. Our driver was a hoot, unfortunately we forgot his name. When booking ask for the young guy that uses many hats during the tour. It would be well worth the effort. Great way to see downtown Seattle.

We were very disappointed about the driver. There were only two tickets left and we were three. We asked, we buy two for now and if someone doesn't show up we buy the next ticket for my husband. The cashier said that's a good plan and the lady who checked the tickets also said yes. The driver was there too... More

By Land or by Sea (err. lake) the Ducks are the best way to get around Seattle and experience what it has to offer. Captain Khaos was a wonderful guide - great playlist, great commentary, great dancing - GREAT! This was my second time taking the tour (this time with a large group that rented out multiple Ducks) and it... More
