Phlip Dover

Posted by on Aug 24, 2017 in Uncategorized

Tour Guide Phlip Dover Captain Philip Dover loves being a Duck captain. Wouldn’t you? It’s easy to spot him; he’s the captain in the antique leather flying helmet and goggles. Captain Phlip likes to restore antique cars, particularly English ones. He’s a pretty fair cook… or so he says. But his favorite food is popcorn popped on his huge ol’ theater popcorn machine! 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...

Chance O’Rayne

Posted by on Aug 24, 2017 in Uncategorized

Captain Chance O’Rayne Ordinarily, if there’s a chance of rain, you’d carry an umbrella. But there’s nothing ordinary about Captain Chance O’Rayne; his Pacific Northwesterness is proven by the fact that he’s never even owned one! Hailing from the soggy woods of the Kitsap Peninsula, Capt. Chance’s family tree is dripping with artists, sailors, loggers, skiers, and car salesmen. Instead of a bus, he rode the ferry to Seattle to study theatre and pre-law at the University of Washington so he could be a Husky just like his parents and childhood pets (Go Dawgs!). Poring over his options after graduation, he made a precipitous choice to be an actor and musician. But, the memory of a Duck tour he took in college came flooding back to him, and the clouds parted as he realized that this could be the perfect job: Fun facts and information, loud music, bad jokes, puns, and boating? The convergence of all these elements left him thunderstruck, and Chance O’Rayne blew in and showered us with his talents here at Ride the Ducks. He loves working at Ride the Ducks of Seattle because it offers a sprinkling of all the things he loves to do and even gave him his first featured TV appearance on...

Mandy Lifeboats

Posted by on Jul 19, 2017 in Uncategorized

Captain Mandy Lifeboats Mandy is proud to be one of the handful of female Captains at Ride the Ducks. Women are largely responsible for building the original DUKWs during WWII, (Rosie the Riveter, anyone?) “But I have to tell you”, she says –“ I’d MUCH rather drive ‘em!” Doubling as a Captain AND Tour Guide, one of the things Mandy likes the most is when she’s playing a song and sees everyone on her Duck, (and even people on the side of the street!) dancing along with it. Or that giggle that washes forward when someone realizes that it’s a lounge version of Gilligan’s Island that she plays before going into the water. Musically, Mandy likes anything she can dance/bounce around to…. or just completely rock out and get everyone to do it too; and the Ducks give her plenty of opportunity for both! So far, her favorite moment was when she had a small group of Seattle tour guides from a different company ride her tour then later tell herit was the best tour of the city they ever had! “It’s all the smiles that are worth it to me – not to mention all the big hugs I get from the cute little kids for being so...

The Fremont Tour

Posted by on Jul 10, 2017 in Blog, Uncategorized

Our Tour Guides wear many different hats (literally…) and when they aren’t entertaining guests at Ride the Ducks, they often find other ways to show off Seattle. Meet Sonny Daze. He joined the Ride the Ducks family this year and enjoys sharing the city with guests any chance he gets. In fact, Sonny Daze operates a walking tour in the Fremont District of Seattle! With public art around every corner, Fremont has a colorful history and is known as one of the most unique parts of town. This 90-minute walking tour, just a half mile long, promotes public art using a mix of public sculpture and improvisational street theater. During The Fremont Tour, a Street Theater you will participate in an ART ATTACK, fire a 47” tall Fremont Rocket, and meet the Fremont Troll’s long lost cousin under the Aurora Bridge. Your Guide will dress in costume and tell the story of the neighborhood’s public art, even playfully involving strangers at times! Each walking tour is fun and unique.
