You know you’ve always wanted to Ride the Ducks!

Posted by on Apr 6, 2013 in Uncategorized

“I’ve lived here for years and had always wanted to go, but never did. I can’t believe how much fun it was!” “It always looked like so much fun, but I didn’t have friends in town until today! I can’t believe I didn’t go sooner!” “I’ve lived here for 30 years and I can’t believe how much I didn’t know about Seattle!” Every time we hear this, we think: Why haven’t we seen you on a Duck Tour sooner? WA residents… it’s time for your Duck Tour! Between April 7 and May 3, 2012, we’re making it easy to kick back and enjoy your beautiful city! $4 off all tours departing Sunday through Friday with WA State ID.* Buy tickets now! Seriously… why not? It’s not just for tourists – it’s for people who love to have fun! Yes, there will be tourists onboard, but more than half our guests reside right here in the Greater Seattle-Bellevue metropolis! Don’t believe me? Look around when your Captain asks, “Who’s from Seattle?!” Be a hometown tourist! We know you’ve seen the Ducks around town! You’ve eaten here, you’ve slept here, you’ve been to a show here, but have you ever REALLY seen Seattle? Did you know the waterfront is built on landfill?...

Seattle Tourism!

Posted by on Apr 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

Tourism matters in Seattle, in Washington and especially, here at Ride the Ducks! It’s the fourth largest industry in the state, employs more than 150,000 people and saves each family about $400 annually from increased tax revenue. We’re happy to be part of an industry that is filled with great people working hard to make time spent on vacation full of laughter, fun and fantastic memories. We’re fortunate to be partners with a number of great organizations that support tourism, including Visit Seattle and the Washington Tourism Alliance. Recently, we were happy to host Brad Goode of KOMO4 tv for a news report on tourism in the northwest. Check it out! A big thanks to Visit Seattle for their great Two Days in Seattle campaign!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Posted by on Mar 24, 2013 in Uncategorized

When the Irish Heritage Club called us last week and asked us to be part of the St. Patrick’s Day parade, we were thrilled! Each year, the parade organizers have a Senior’s Shamrock Shuttle for those that don’t want to walk the distance! This year, the lucky seniors got to ride on a Duck, complete with a barbershop quartet! We decorated the Duck with green shamrocks, racing stripes and pinwheels to really get into the festivities! The Irish Heritage Club of Greater Seattle is a non-profit organization that promotes and organizes activities of an Irish cultural nature. Throughout the year, they celebrate Irish heritage with events that include Irish music, dancing, language and history, plus Gaelic games and exchanges with Seattle’s Irish sister city! The parade is only one of a multitude of fun and interesting Irish-themed events that happen year-round. Thanks for including us in the St. Patrick’s Day fun! We’re looking forward to next year!
