“Quack your way through Seattle”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

The duck boat and drivers are delightful. It's such a novel way to explore all aspects of the city. You get a great land tour, complete hysterical music and song, and then you enter Lake Union and see an entirely different side of Seattle, beautiful skyline views from the water. The floating homes are amazing and full of history. Being up for crazy antics is part of the experience. Quacker whistles are the best!

Duck tour was really great fun, you dont need kids on this trip to enjoy it. It was very informative and fun both on the land and in the water. A must do if you go to Seattle.

“A MIST DO!!! never ever skip this one :)”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Amazing great unspectacular forgotten ride you will have amazing fun but require the weather to be a bit clear and no rain to really enjoy it , you will get endless photos and maybe video so prepare your camera and at the end you can get a memory photo for $25, the ride costs around $30 but really deserve it and you will know and see stuff needs a local tell you tell you about it :)
