Captain Chance O’Rayne

Ordinarily, if there’s a chance of rain, you’d carry an umbrella. But there’s nothing ordinary about Captain Chance O’Rayne; his Pacific Northwesterness is proven by the fact that he’s never even owned one! Hailing from the soggy woods of the Kitsap Peninsula, Capt. Chance’s family tree is dripping with artists, sailors, loggers, skiers, and car salesmen. Instead of a bus, he rode the ferry to Seattle to study theatre and pre-law at the University of Washington so he could be a Husky just like his parents and childhood pets (Go Dawgs!).

Poring over his options after graduation, he made a precipitous choice to be an actor and musician. But, the memory of a Duck tour he took in college came flooding back to him, and the clouds parted as he realized that this could be the perfect job: Fun facts and information, loud music, bad jokes, puns, and boating? The convergence of all these elements left him thunderstruck, and Chance O’Rayne blew in and showered us with his talents here at Ride the Ducks.

He loves working at Ride the Ducks of Seattle because it offers a sprinkling of all the things he loves to do and even gave him his first featured TV appearance on the local news for rescuing a kayaker with the help of his onboard crew. Plus, there’s always an office dog in the break room! Whenever there’s a Chance O’Rayne, that’s a good day to Ride the Ducks!

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.

  1. We were on the 3:30 tour this past Friday. I hadn’t been on a Duck tour since I was a kid back in Wisconsin Dells. Chance was great. Our little group found him hilarious. We’re (recent) locals and learned a lot. If you’re on the fence or cynical about going on one of these tours, just go for it. Perchance you’ll get Chance as your guide. From one theatre major to another, thanks for a fun trip.
