Very entertaining right from the moment you step on the 'duck'. We started at the Westlake centre so went to the lake first. The 'ducks' are fairly old and theres not a lot of room but a bit of a novelty. They show you the key sights of the city but its not a boring history tour theres a bit... More

Our family enjoyed this city tour. Despite the slap stick comedy provided by our driver we did learn quite a bit about the city and saw lots of sights.

I've been going to Seattle for weekend getaway for years and have often seen these ducks go by with folks looking like they were having so much fun.. so this visit - we took the plunge... it's scenic and really just a bunch of silly fun. We really enjoyed the adventure.

This is a great way to start a visit to Seattle. They show you key sites, tell you about the city in a humorous and entertaining way and then also take you onto the water for a different perspective and view of the city.

1.5 hour tour - a ride over to and then on Lake Union and then back through Seattle past all the places we tourists want to go - the most fun and entertaining tour we'd ever taken. Our driver/captain had quite a script, changing goofy hats and music often to go with his comic narrative. Hey, informative too! Loved it,... More

But the duck rides were a great way to get the lay of the land in Seattle while having lots of fun. Also nice to enjoy Lake Union & the fun float homes.

This is not exactly suited for those seeking a scholarly guide to the city but it is a fun way of seeing a section of the city from a different perspective - namely, a converted landing craft, aka Duck. The children on our trip loved the way the "Captain" would change hats with each new story he told as we... More

The ducks take you around all the tourist parts of Seattle. A great way to find your feet if visiting the area. The trip on Lake Union is excellent and the views are superb. The cheesy jokes and commentary from the driver help to make this an enjoyable. It can be spoiled by over-enthusiastic passengers constantly using their quackers but... More
