Don’t Fly South for the Winter… Get on a Duck!

Posted by on Nov 8, 2013 in Blog, Uncategorized

It’s officially fall in Seattle and while we’ll miss the longer days and warmer evenings, we couldn’t be more excited! As the leaves turn and the days get a little shorter, this is a great time to get onboard a Duck and tour Seattle, especially if you missed out this summer!  Open Year Round. Ride the Ducks is open year-round from our Seattle Center location and through December 31 at our Westlake Center location. With 362 days a year to tour Seattle by land and water, there’s no excuses for why you haven’t been on a Duck recently! We happily spend Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to be with our families and we hope you do too. Blankets Onboard. We know it can get a bit chilly this time of the year so we’ve equipped all of our Ducks with blankets to keep you toasty! Coffee and Hot Chocolate are Welcome Onboard. As always, we allow any food and non-alcoholic beverages onboard, but this time of the year is particularly enjoyable for bringing your favorite warm beverage to enjoy on the tour! If you’re departing from Westlake Center, check out the Starbucks right next to the kiosk! From Seattle Center, walk less than a block north and you’ll...

Captain Clem Chowder

Posted by on Nov 1, 2013 in Uncategorized

Having reached a crossroads in 2009 after a long career running a construction company, Captain Clem Chowder left the decision-making process for his next job in the hands of his wife, Mrs. Chowder. She combed the classifieds and presented exactly two options to Clem. The first ad was for a job that would require him to walk up to 20 miles a day for the US Forest Service on behalf of trail maintenance and something described as “Bear Patrol/Decoy.” Nope. The very next job posting simply asked, “Do you like people? Are you a fun person to be around? Do you want to drive a big metal box with wheels into Lake Union?” This time, the answers were definitely, “Yes, YES and YES!” Since Captain Clem Chowder joined us at Ride the Ducks of Seattle, he has taken huge amounts of people on countless trips through the city and on the lake having copious amounts of fun talking about history and telling bad jokes. (Or, is that talking about jokes and telling bad history?) Either way, when you meet Clem for the first time he will say, “Hello, very much!” and take you on a great ride! As you can imagine, being a tour guide at Ride the Ducks...

Captain Bjorn Toorun

Posted by on Nov 1, 2013 in Uncategorized

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, 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. If you ride with Captain Bjorn Toorun, be sure to request Raise Your Glass! Back to...
