Hit the road and make a splash on the DUCK!
If you’re visiting Washington DC for the first time or if you’ve been here a hundred times before—you’ve never seen the city as you will on board the DC Ducks Tour!
Your adventure begins the moment you board our fully restored authentic World War II amphibious vehicle. This isn’t just any old DC tour… it’s an experience. Sit back and relax as our tour captains turn back the pages of history.
Enjoy your journey on land
This DC tour begins at Union Station and winds its way down Pennsylvania Avenue. As we journey past our country’s most famous monuments and museums, our 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 the leaders of our past, like FDR and more.
Continue your journey by river
Then, settle in your seat for a true thrill because the DUCK will leave the streets and head straight for the Potomac.
Sit back and relax or throw your hands in the air with excitement as we take the plunge—without missing a beat the DUCK becomes a boat and splashes down into the water. We’ll cruise along the river highlighting more of what DC is famous for and end up at Gravely Point, underneath the flight path of the landing planes at the National Airport.
The DC Ducks Tour is a unique 90-minute land and water Washington DC sightseeing experience that encompasses DC’s most popular sites and history…a must-see and do for people of all ages.
