Welcome to Seattle!

Don’t miss seeing Seattle on the tour voted #1 for more than a decade!


Ride the Ducks of Seattle logo

Before or after your Alaskan cruise, we hope you have extra time in the beautiful city of Seattle. We’d love to show you around on a 90-minute land TO water adventure. Afterall, your Seattle experience starts right here at Ride the Ducks aboard a DUKW)!

Kids always have fun on a Duck tour, but there’s more to a Duck Tour than just jokes. Since the Denny party landed on Alki in 1851, Seattle-ites have been figuring out how to make Seattle even more spectacular. Our horses-and-wagons navigated the legendary hills by shaving off the hilltops (yes, the hills used to be steeper!) and we solved a unique toilet issue of the late 1800’s by raising the streets (it was our #1 and #2 problem of that era). If all this all sounds very strange, we know! It is! We’ll fill in the details on your tour with your trained Tour Guide.

Then, SPLASH into Lake Union with your USCG-Certified Captain for breathtaking views of the skyline! This is one sightseeing adventure you won’t want to miss!
