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!

They each complete a rigorous training program and hold a 25-ton Merchant Mariner Masters’ license as well as a commercial driver’s license.
