How corny does this sound?! But honestly, under duress I went, and am so glad I did. The driver was both knowledgeable and genuine, and an actual local. Length was just right, and it was a unique experience to transfer from land to sea. Well worth doing, and don't be fooled into thinking it's corny and tacky. It's not.

Our captain was fabulous - informative and entertaining. A tight fit for anyone with long legs but, we were all having so much fun "quacking," singing, seeing the sights and laughing that we didn't mind. We were a couple of minutes behind because we got turned around in downtown Seattle but, the staff still greeted us warmly and took the... More

So we live downtown Seattle and our 6-year-old granddaughter was in town so we decided to take her on the tour as we walk by it daily. We also see folks seemingly having a great time on the tour so what the heck. Well, as been mentioned, the price is a little steep for what you get. This was especially... More

Phew. The reviews were great for this attraction. I booked ahead, as done with all attractions available, providing a nice %. However, I would never do this tour again. I have a sucessful background in the recording and sound business, this mentioned because the volume broadcasted continuously thoughout this 1.5 hr. tour was over the top. First, parents with kids-... More

I visited Seattle and a friend who lives there recommended I do The Ducks !! What fun !! Sitting quite snugly on the back of the craft I really didn't know what to expect. It is all open though so wrap up well if you do this in fall/winter/spring.I had of course paid a few dollars for my duck beak... More

Our party consisted of two adults in their late twenties, two children (one under 3) and me (of a certain age) in early September. From the moment the driver was seated, he delivered a "stand up" ("sit down?") set. I know you'll experience this every time, as I heard jokes from the other boat while we were waiting to start...

This was a birthday trip, and the driver entertained everyone with hat changes, funny stories, history of places we passed. Everyone on the duck had a terrific time! We sang, traveled the streets of Seattle and boated on Lake Union without ever leaving our seats. We went in August, and I'm sure you'd want to bundle up if the weather... More

Get on the Ducks to tour downtown Seattle and forget about the traffic and parking. The ride over bridges and on Lake Union is a bonus. On a busy weekend the lake is positively teeming with activity: paddle boarders, kayakers, ski boats and float planes competing for space on the water! Stunning views of downtown and the Space Needle and... More
