Don’t ride the ducks. They are expensive, annoying and dumb and you don’t even get to see the cool stuff in the city. A terrible tour of Seattle. You can do better.

We've been on Duck Boat Tours in Wisconsin Dells, Philadelphia, Boston, and now Seattle. The hosts are always a little corny, but it's a great way to see neighborhoods in each city and to get out on the water at the same time. This boat...More

They have a bad safety history. Look it up. They have had their boats sink. They have been responsible for deadly automobile accidents. I would not do business with them as they operate currently, as their vehicles are outdated.
