Military Reunions are more fun #onaduck!

Posted by on Nov 18, 2013 in Blog

DUKWs have a rich history in connection with the armed forces! Did you know our Ducks served in WWII? Military reunion groups love riding the Ducks! Duck tours are a great way to show your reunion attendees the highlights of our gorgeous city and share a bit of history in our amphibious vehicles. Each duck seats up to 34 guests and some military reunions have their own private Duck tour that includes pick-up and drop-off at your downtown Seattle hotel! Our Lunch on the Lake package can provide affordable and scrumptious boxed lunches on board the Ducks! You can also check out our restaurant partners for a sit-down meal after your tour. For more info about planning your military reunion #onaduck contact our Director of Sales, Tammy...

It’s officially fall in Seattle and while we’ll miss the longer days and warmer evenings, we couldn’t be more excited!

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...
