We’ve got the Wackiest Captains Around!

Posted by on Jun 17, 2014 in Blog

“I got invited to join a small group of relatives on the Ducks tour. We were all visiting from out of town for a Seattle wedding. A quick check on TripAdvisor convinced me to join in. The Duck drivers not only are enthusiastic but versatile – part bus driver, part tour guide, part stand up comic, part music DJ and of course they are also Coast Guard Certified boat captains.” – BuckeyeBob, Ohio Whether you call it the fastest truck in the water or the slowest boat on the road, it takes a special quality to take the helm of a DUKW! Our Captains are ambassadors of Seattle and some of the most entertaining people around! They each complete a rigorous training program and hold a 25-ton Merchant Mariner Masters’ license as well as a commercial driver’s license. In addition, they each bring their own personality to their tour and come from many different backgrounds; golf pro, radio DJ, military veteran and an actual clown to name a few!

Pediatric Duck Day Onboard Ride the Ducks!

Posted by on Apr 13, 2014 in Blog, Community

We were thrilled to partner with Starlight Children’s Foundation Northwest and The Seattle Children’s Museum for a fun-filled day with local Starlight families in honor of Pediatric Duck Day!  We hosted over 150 children and their families for a Duck Tour and had a BLAST!  After seeing all the sights of Seattle, the Ducks splashed into Lake Union to cruise around Gas Works Park and saw breathtaking views of the skyline.  After the tour, The Seattle Children’s Museum hosted Starlight families for an ice cream social and activities.  It was an amazing day and we were so excited to be a part of it! A huge thank you also goes out to Pepsi for donating waters for all the families, the event came together with support from a lot of great partners and we are so lucky to be a part of such a great community. Starlight’s mission is to help seriously ill children and their families cope with their pain, fear, and isolation through entertainment, education, and family activities.  Ride the Ducks of Seattle has been a proud partner with Starlight Children’s Foundation Northwest since 2008.  To learn more about our partnership, click...
