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.

We rode the Duck with a relative visiting from Montana. It provided a great overview of Seattle in a fun atmosphere. Be prepared to stand in line as there is very little seating in the waiting area. Staff were very helpful and cheerful. Seats are small and cramped for 2 large adults. Our driver was friendly and well informed. The... More

First, our driver was quite entertaining. He changed hats like a gazillion times in the 90 minutes we were on the tour. You get to yell out at the other ducks as they pass by and to people in the street. Lots of fun!! A good, quick way to see Seattle. A definite must see and do!!

Great for adults and particularly families. We were all adults and loved it. Don't expect a heavy duty tour, but lots of facts and just a very enjoyable experience. We were thrilled we did it and appreciated how well run it was. Stayed right on time, even when our tour boat was not filled. We would highly recommend it.

Wow!! What can I say!! We had a brilliant time on the Ducks, with the most amazing host Bob L. Head!! Very informative of all the surrounding area, excellent commentary during the drive & kept us all amused with anecdotes. I highly recommend taking a trip on the Ducks of Seattle just "Mind The Sharks!!"

This company provides tours of Seattle that combine a narrated driving tour and floating tour of the city on vehicles that both drive and float (created for the military 40 yrs ago). The drivers are very comical and combine jokes with songs and historical facts and pointers on other sights to visit in Seattle. The seats are reserved by number... More

Had a blast, the driver was funny and everyone had a great time! A must to do when visiting settle. Easy to get too as well, as there is 2 locations. We actually ended up at the other one and they just transferred us over which was awesome

Regardless of being home grown in Seattle or being a tourist from another continent, this attraction is interesting and fun. You get to experience the WWII creation of duck/boat vehicle during the tour. You get to enjoy the scenery of downtown Seattle. You get to hear about other attractions/highlights of the city. You get trivia that is similar to a... More

I don't see how anyone can give this tour anything less than a four star. Yes, you're a tourist and touristy things can be pricey. Go to New York, San Francisco or Hawaii so you can compare, if you can't afford to go on vacation and spend some money on your family then you should consider a stay-cation. Whenever I... More

We rode the duck with Captain Bjorn To Run for the 2:30PM tour. We were a group of 10 ladies for a bachelorette tour. The Captain asked the bride to be to join him up in the captains seat. It was so fun! Great energy, fun music, and special attention to our group! :)
