Whether you’re visiting Washington DC for the first time or you’re a frequent visitor, you’ve never seen the city like you will on the Washington DC Duck Tour. Your adventure begins the moment you board the fully restored authentic World War II amphibious Duck vehicle. Sit back and relax as your tour captain turns back the pages of history.

The Duck Tour begins in the heart of the capital and winds its way down Pennsylvania Avenue. As you journey past our country’s most famous monuments and museums, your knowledgeable Captain will entertain and enlighten you with interesting facts and historical accounts of people and events that helped shape our nation. You’ll also be treated to original sound bites from the World War II era, including music, newscasts and speeches by some of our past leaders, including FDR and more.

Then, get ready for a true thrill as the Duck leaves the streets, splashes down into the Potomac River and becomes a boat! You’ll cruise along the river as your Captain highlights more of what makes DC famous, and the views from the Potomac River are very special indeed.

The Washington DC Duck Tour is a unique 90-minute amphibious sightseeing experience that promises to be exciting and educational for people of all ages.

About the Vehicle

The DUKW's were originally built as amphibious military personnel carriers immediately following the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1942. These unique vehicles were used during World War II to carry supplies back and forth to ships that did not have port facilities, and they affectionately became known as "Ducks" to the many servicemen who appreciated their extraordinary mobility.

Today, these authentic, fully restored Ducks maintain their nostalgic charm and offer visitors to Washington DC a new way to see and experience the most popular sites and points of interest, on land and in the water! Safe, comfortable and exciting, the DC Ducks Tour is an extraordinary excursion for the entire family. So hop on board, grab your seat and get ready for a brand new perspective of our capital city.

5.0 / 5
Fun way to see the city. Land portion was best - not much to see on the water. It was quite cold in early April.
5.0 / 5
great tour. the process of buying the ticket online was brutal though. if you buy online it is not a ticket, it is a 'voucher' according to the duck tour folks.
3.0 / 5
The tour itself was fun.
