Tour Operators

Are you a tour operator designing a Pacific Northwest itinerary? A travel professional planning shore excursions in Seattle? Don’t miss a Duck Tour! It will be the talk of the town for the rest of your trip!

Seattle is a place with unique experiences and, like riding a ferry or seeing an orca, a Duck Tour is one of them. This must-do experience will kickstart your Seattle adventure. Start with a Duck Tour and explore the entire city – all without taking 10,000 steps. Perfect for your first day in the city!

A Duck tour provides a fun =way to see Seattle via land TO water! Your Tour Guide will surprise and entertain your group with trivia tidbits, jokes and historical folklore and we guarantee everyone will be shocked when we turn your bus into a boat and drive straight into Lake Union! At the end of your tour, we want you to feel like you learned a bit about Seattle – both some of its history and some of the current culture – plus, enjoyed the scenery. If we can get you to giggle at a bad dad joke or clap along with a song sung by one of our famous musicians, then that’s a win.

All our Tour Groups 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.

We value our partnerships with operators from the American Bus Association, National Tour Association and Go West. Please let us know if you’re part of one of these valuable organizations for special pricing.




If you’d like to add-on boxed lunches, let us know! We’ll pre-arrange and order your food so everything is ready when you arrive at our ticket booth! There will be no waiting at Will Call, making it easy for your group to stay on schedule!

Also, check out our Sea to Sky Duck package to combine a private tour with drinks and a view!


Traveling via bus or motor coach?


We recommend that groups traveling by bus or motor coach depart from our Seattle Center departure location or book a private Duck tour. Ride the Ducks does not own or operate any parking, but there are a number of convenient load zones near our Seattle Center location.

If you haven’t yet booked a hotel or transportation partner, let us know! We partner with motor coach companies and hotels who specialize in hosting group tours! Our Groups Hotline can help design your itinerary to Seattle and use our existing partnerships to save you time and money!


Already have a local step-on guide?


Don’t skip the Ducks! When you tour Seattle on a Duck, you get the #1 City Tour, plus a boat excursion in 90 minutes! If you already have a step-on guide scheduled, ask him or her to customize their part of the tour to expand the focus to other areas of Seattle. Your Duck Tour Guide will show you the Seattle waterfront, downtown shopping district and historic Pioneer Square, but you don’t want to miss places like Kerry Park, the Ballard Locks or the quirky Fremont Troll! The Ducks are an experience your guests won’t want to miss!
