About Chattanooga Ducks
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.

Our Captain was the best! I was the only one on the Duck with the bucket of beers! He let my 12 year old son, Quinn "drive" for a bit while he told us great stories about the history of Chattanooga! Highly recommended!! Bucket of beers not necessary, but did make it a bit more fun! Shared with another passenger! Will do it again on our next trip!!

River trip including everyone from 6 year old to an 84 year old. Our guide Dave made it a great and enjoyable trip for all. Very humorous, very informative and educational. Included a lot of info of original Cherokee inhabitants. Spent time focusing on children’s experiences which was much appreciated. Would definitely recommend for anyone that wanted a little bit of knowledge and history of Chattanooga along with a short river tour that would interest all ages. Took about an hour or a little more. Only disappointment was that they ran out of moon pies, small I know, but since they originate in Chattanooga, wasn’t expected
