Way to go Staff!

Posted by on Aug 26, 2010 in Uncategorized

We received this email recently and wanted to share it with everyone. We get great feedback daily regarding our customer service staff, but this one was especially great! Way to go! I just wanted to thank everyone who helped me today when I ran out of gas right in front of your building. Your employees pushed my car out of traffic, helped me to park it and then took my cell # while I got gas a few blocks away just in case. Then, when I got back, one of your other employees helped me put the gas can filter together and put gas in my car – he even wiped it off for me!! It is nice to know there are still good Samaritans out there and I will be sure to spread the word of how caring your company was. I hope to “Ride the Duck” soon to say thank you!! –...

Amphibious Ex-Army Vehicle: A Travel Blogger Shares Her Experience in Seattle

Posted by on Aug 12, 2010 in Uncategorized

Shared via TravelPod: jennykelly‘s trip to Seattle We were up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and ready for another day of sightseeing in Seattle. Melissa had advised us to do the Duck ride, so we booked that first thing when we arrived into town. It was a wild thing, the vehicle is a modified ex-army amphibious vehicle, Guns taken out, seats installed. The Captain, Captain Lunachick, was a very animated young lady, with a different hat and piece of music for every occasion. She had us singing YMCA and dancing the Saturday Night Fever dance from our seats. There were no windows, so plenty of room to spread our wings. After the city tour, Captain Lunachick took us down the boat ramp and into the water! Wow, this was cool. We cruised through the harbour and saw the floating homes, built on logs many years ago. Washington has lots of trees, so lots of buildings are made of timber This travel blog photo’s source is TravelPod page: Amphibious Ex-army Vehicle – Seattle, United States Travel Blog That’s about the best real estate you can get, on the edge of the water in the bay on Lake Union. We had a load of fun during the whole trip and I think the...

Ducks and Love!

Posted by on Jul 12, 2010 in Uncategorized

We received this letter and photo of Captain Phlip from a proud Mother-in-Law-To-Be! Congratulations to the happy couple! “My husband and I took our son and his girlfriend on a Duck Ride on June 20 with Captain Phlip. On June 23, our son popped the question to his girlfriend and presented her with his grandmother’s engagement ring after taking many of the comments to heart. Congratulations to the Captain on a job well done! Laurie and John have not yet decided on the specifics for their wedding, but I think Ride the Ducks should be involved since it was at the Captain’s instigation that the proposal was finally made and accepted!”...

Posted by on Jul 5, 2010 in Uncategorized

Randal Nelson – Never make fun of or be disrespectful to the flag When you’re the driver and guide for one of those Ride the Ducks “party on wheels” tours, a little pizazz doesn’t hurt. A couple of years ago, Randal Nelson, 50, of Covington, was working as a carpenter and in construction. Then the economy tanked, he got a job for a while in sales, and then found his calling as a Ducks driver. He goes by “Captain Clem Chowder.” Read more about Captain Clem Chowder’s Fourth of July...
