“Fun Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

We did the Duck Tour in Ketchikan on 22 June 2014 as a trip from the cruise ship Pacific Princess. It was a miserable rainy day but the driver Captain Bruce and the guide Anthony made up for it with a fun filled trip! Anthony's commentary/ stories was humorous and the banter between Bruce and him made for a memorable experience. A great introduction to Ketchikan and a good way to pass an hour and a half there. Following the tour we did an independent walking trip of Ketchikan taking in the places of interest pointed out on the tour.

“Thoroughly enjoyed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

My husband and I took the Ketchikan Duck Tour on Tuesday, June 3, as part of our Holland America cruise. We thoroughly enjoyed the banter of Captain Larry and Narrator Anthony. They were informative, humorous, and just plain fun. We felt like we learned about Ketchikan while having a good time. Captain Larry, the grandkids loved their duck quackers, although both sets are temporarily "missing"--ha! Anthony, whatever you do in life, I hope you keep making people feel good with your sense of humor. Thanks so much!

“Good Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We did this tour while on our Alaskan cruise. This was a bit of fun and a good introduction to the sights and history of the town. Our guide's anecdotal commentary was definitely a highlight. Lots of corny jokes, and loads of fun.

“Duck Tour, Ketchican, Alaska”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We did the Duck Tour while on a cruise that stopped in Ketchikan. We had Pierre as our driver and Lee as our narrator. Both did a great job. It was a gorgeous day and we learned a bit about the history and the culture of Ketchikan Al.

Not for people who have a problem climbing up about 10 steps or so. Have to go backwards down the steps when you are done, and I saw a few folks struggling with that.

They do provide blankets in case it is cold, and offer "duck whistles" for sale for $3.00 each. They were $2.00 each at the "Duck Store" on the dock, right on the pier..

Would be great for families, couples or solo.

Glad we did this.

“Fun family tour to take”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

I have been on several Duck tours and will say this is one of the better ones. If you are looking for a cheap way to get a tour of the city, as well as get out on the water briefly this is a tour for you. Our guide was extremely funny and informative.
