Seattle’s Child offers a great review!

“Maybe you’ve seen them already – the boats on wheels driving around Seattle, filled with raucous passengers, driven by a microphone-wearing tour leader. Our family decided to be tourists in our town and Ride the Ducks! Ducks are World War II amphibious vehicles that reach a top speed on land of 38 miles per hour and motor effortlessly on Lake Union.

Our captain was “Oliver D. Road,” and he was a fast-talking, easy-laughing driver, tour guide and mischief instigator. Whenever he pointed out a Starbucks, our response was to yell “Lattes!” as loud as we could. Touring on a duck means that the information you learn is always a little off-kilter. For example, I had never before put two and two together and noticed that the heart of Pioneer Square is actually a triangle. The tour goes from downtown to Fremont, into the Lake, and back for about a 90-minute trip. Our captain went through six silly hats and one wig in that time.”
