Place was difficult to find. When we finally got there, we found out the duck tours have been closed for a year. It would have been nice if they answered the phone on the way there. Update this website

We have previously been on Duck tours in Portland, Maine, and in Seattle, Washington so when we heard that there was also a tour in Panama City, we knew we wanted to go. Six of us went on the tour, five adults and one child. We were on a Duck that dated back to the World War II era and it was great fun. Captain Bob was our driver, and he did an excellent job. His love for what he does was evident, and his knowledge of the history related to the development of the duck vehicle was really interesting. Panama City doesn't have many real sights or historical places, but Captain Bob showed us the original city area, took us in front of the Naval dive training building, pointed out restaurants that are family owned and operated, and kept us entertained throughout the tour. The highlight for us came when the duck plunged into the water. Captain Bob let the children on the tour sit at the wheel of the duck while he talked about the history of the ducks. My grandson was delighted to have the opportunity. He will never forget that special few moments. On our way back at the end of the tour, the duck broke down. Seeing how Captain Bob responded to that incident made me feel even better about our trip. He quickly phoned another employee, and they brought a second duck for us to board. He found a spot that was shaded and safe and helped everyone cross the busy street to get to good spot to wait for the rescue duck. In only a few moments we were on the second duck and headed back to our cars. Everyone on the duck seemed to have enjoyed the visit, and I felt the trip was good value for what we experience.

My wife and I take Duck boat tours when ever they are available when we travel. This one in Panama City beach was one of the best. Captain Bob is very informative, funny, and loves his city. I highly recommend taking this tour it is well worth the money.

My husband was super excited to ride in a WW2 amphibious vehicle. I was skeptical, thinking the boat was just going to skim the shoreline. Boy was I wrong, I am so glad I did not talk the hubby out of this ride. The driver loved his job and was very knowledgeable on the vehicle and history. I loved seeing Panama City from so high up and hearing the history behind Panama city. Our guide pointed out all kinds of stores, houses and eating places and was just awesome as a tour guide. I did not even know where a lot of the places were until they were pointed out, so the guide helped out a lot. You come to the marina and set sail, right off the dock! It's the craziest thing to experience and a must do attraction when in Panama!
