We traveled to Saugatuck with visiting grandchildren to ride the duck boats. We got a one o'clock ticket but was worried that an approaching thunderstorm would cancel the trip. Well they did not cancel or postpone!! The captain just hurried with the boarding and departure to beat the storm. We got caught in downpour with wind and thunder all around... More

called at 10am and asked for directions to ticket booth - 15 minutes later when we got there, we were told that the attraction was closed or a private party - felt like we should have been given this information when we called 15 minutes early - VERY disappointed -

We did the Saugatuck Dune rides the day before with our 5 y/o. It was awesome...just fast and steep enough to get a thrill while not freaking out my kid. We had high hopes the next day for the duck ride. The seats are insanely uncomfortable, so even if a senior citizen just wanting a relaxing ride, you will be... More

We booked a trip on the Duck with our 5 year old great nephew. We enjoyed the Big Band music and found the Duck Captain to be good fun and we enjoyed his sense of humor. Nice to tour the 2 towns and take a ride on the water. We plan to take the tour again.

So much fun!!! The duck driver had such a clever and great sense of humor - he was really, really great. Nice way to see the area. Loved the 40's music at the beginning and end of the tour - made me think about the heroes that were in these vehicles during WWII. We found this to be a wonderful... More

The tour operator singled out my family as we walked downtown and proceeded to hurl one insult after another at us, trying to be funny. Any idiot can try and make a joke at someone else's expense, this clown should be run out of town, what an embarrassment!

Regardless whatever you do the ducks it is always a good time! On this trip we went through the towns of Saugatuk and Douglas and then we be at the open sea and the Kalamazoo River. We went September 1 and our captain was amazing! He was funny and very informative and we just had a really good time. It... More

Enter Mildly entertaining way to spend an hour or so on a drizzly afternoon. Enjoyed the driver/guide's patter. Fun way to orient yourself to the area. Just seems the tour could have covered some of the more scenic areas of Saugatauk.

Given the opportunity to explore the abundant natural beauty of the area, the Harbor Duck Adventures fails to deliver and pales in comparison to the Wisconsin Dells ducks which are far superior on several levels. I paid $57 for the three of us, but more than half of the short 38 minute ride in cramped and uncomfortable wooden seats consisted... More
