Did you know The designation of DUKW is not a military pun - the name comes from the terminology used for military vehicles in World War II; the D indicates a vehicle designed in 1942, the U meant "utility (amphibious)", the K indicated all-wheel drive and the W indicated two powered rear axles. Although technically a misnomer, DUKWs are often referred to as duck boats. Another popular nickname was old magoo or simply magoo. Though the origin of this term is unknown, it probably refers to the odd shape of the vehicle. DUKWs became known as ''Ducks'' and are still in use, as well as purpose-built amphibious tour buses, primarily as tourist transport in harbor and river cities.

Nice tour through downtown and the Chattanooga river. We learned somethings we did not know. Tour captain let me drive the machine, which was a lot fun. Something different beside the Aquarium and Ruby falls.

Great adventure for all ages. It was the day after the Branson Ridley Owned tragedy and our Duck Master was so great about setting everyone’s mind at peace so we all sat back and enjoyed the adventure.

The ride was great for small kids who got to drive the duck (with assistance from the driver). Fun for all. Driver was excellent, especially with the small kids (3 up to 8 years old).

Captain Dave made the trip memorable with his knowledge of the history of Chattanooga, the Tennessee river, the Cherokee. He paid great attention to safety as well as making this trip a memorable one.

My family had the best experience yesterday while in Chattanooga. Our captain “splash” was engaging and informative. It is definitely something that will be put on our list to do again.

No you don't get soaked. Occasionally when the wind is very strong from the west it can blow into the Duck. On those days the Captain will usually enter the water slower to reduce the "splash"

I just checked their website and it looks like they only have tours from March to October. You can give them a call to find out for sure.
