What Was Your First Book?

Posted by on May 21, 2013 in Uncategorized

We were honored to participate in First Book-Seattle’s 2nd Annual “What Was Your First Book” event on Saturday! This read-a-thon featured leaders from across our community sharing their very first book and celebrating the power a first book can have on a child. The event raised funds to provide new books to local children through community organizations and Title I schools. Our very own Captain Bjorn Toorun shared his very first book “One Duck Stuck” by Phyllis Root and Jane Chapman. Thank you First Book for letting us be a part of this amazing event!

Congratulations to our Director of Operations!

Posted by on Apr 8, 2013 in Uncategorized

On March 16, 2013, Ryan Johnson celebrated his tenth year with Ride the Ducks! As our Director of Operations, he manages upwards of 80 staff throughout the year and is an integral cog in the Ride the Ducks wheel. He manages our safety programs, trains our Captains and works with our ticket booth staff to ensure successful dispatch of more than 80+ tours during the summer. PLUS, he takes care of all the random projects we have for him in the office! He’s painted over graffiti, hung marketing boards and even kills big spiders for us! Ryan’s story at Ride the Ducks is unlike most! It started like most college jobs – he was looking for work and a friend was managing our ticket booth at the time. The interview (if you can call it that) was short, on the phone and essentially, a formality. However, on his first day of training, our group sales coordinator (now GM) almost fired him! Mikie now says, “Firing Ryan would have been one of the worst mistakes I’d ever made, but I seriously didn’t think he was paying attention! The other girl was taking copious notes and he was barely acknowledging me. I was shocked the next day when he was selling...
