Tour Guide Wade Forrit Wade Forrit has studied the ancient art of joke-kwan-do from such great masters as his dad, his high-school drama teacher and Groucho Marx. Combined with a brain full of dinner-party trivia Wade is back for his second season to show you his favorite parts of Seattle, from the west coast’s largest fidget spinner to a dog with a man’s face in fremont. He never leaves the nest without his squid hat or trusty spyglass. With all the things you’ll see, you’ll never be able to tell that Wade is also extremely nearsighted, hence the spyglass. As you can imagine, being a tour guide at Ride the Ducks is a ton of fun and you get to listen to a lot of great music.

Sonny Daze

Tour Guide Sonny Daze “Welcome to Fremont, Center of the Universe”. That’s the city sign the Duck passes as it drives over the Fremont Bridge. Sonny Daze knows that sign well since he put it up. As a playful ‘Fremonster,’ he is delighted to welcome everyone to his neighborhood–and even operates a walking tour out of Fremont! Sonny likes to tell stories – which is good thing to like when you’re a Tour Guide! He honed this skill by being a desert farmer, kindergarten teacher, carpenter and entrepreneur. Sonny Daze has called Seattle his home for the past 38 years and loves to share its story with visitors and locals alike. He is married, owns a spoiled-rotten dog, and has raised numerous foster children in his day. During the winter he is a teacher and tutor. During the summer, when he is not giving tours, he enjoys camping, hiking and appreciating the beauty of the Northwest. As you can imagine, being a tour guide at Ride the Ducks is a ton of fun and you get to listen to a lot of great music.

Bjorn Toorun

Captain Bjorn Toorun Captain Bjorn Toorun is infamously known for both his hand-crafted precision propeller-beanies and his booming laugh, but only one of them will scare the neighborhood dogs from his yard. He loves anything to do with water: boating, crabbing, swimming, fishing, whale watching, wakeboarding, boogie-boarding, skim-boarding, and even sleepboarding. He has been to more weddings than you (Yes, you) as a professional photographer, loves volleyball, snowboarding, (how many ‘boards’ does he have, anyway?) and roller disco. Although he is rarely in a bad mood, he confesses that one thing will set him over the edge – running out of tartar sauce. As you can imagine, being a tour guide at Ride the Ducks is a ton of fun and you get to listen to a lot of great music. Our Quackmasters of Fun have compiled a Spotify playlist of some of their favorite songs that you might hear on your Duck Tour.   Back to Tour...
