Kids Love to Ride the Ducks!


Kids LOVE to Ride the Ducks because our tours are fun and educational! Not only will your students laugh and sing, they’ll also learn Seattle facts and history as they explore the city like never before! Your Tour Guide will share important historical information: Who was the Denny Party? When was Seattle founded? How did the Great Seattle Fire change the plumbing system forever? Why is this WWII boat-bus called a Duck? Plus, much more!

If you’re planning a field trip for a school group, summer camp, day care, band or choir, stop looking! Ride the Ducks has been voted the #1 City Tour in Seattle for more than a decade and is a great outing for your students!

All our Group Events are booked through our Groups Hotline at 206-441-4687! Most of our groups book their tickets at least two weeks in advance for best availability. To confirm your seats, payment in full is required. All of our tickets are pre-paid in advance and non-refundable, non-exchangeable. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept purchase orders (POs).


Ride the Ducks is an approved vendor by the State of Washington, so if you need to have your school district pay by check or state credit card, we’re already approved by the Office of Financial Management in Olympia. No special exemption to issue payment; we already have a vendor number!


US Coast Guard Certified


All our Ducks are certified by the US Coast Guard each year and are designed to carry up to 34 passengers. There are both adult and children’s life vests onboard. All our Captains are certified with a USCG Master’s license and a Commercial Driver’s license. Each Duck is staffed with a Captain and a separate Tour Guide. For extra precautions, we do require a student-to-chaperone ratio of 8:1 and have specific seats assigned for chaperones. Please check out our Group Policies for everyone onboard the Ducks.
