Make a splash in our Nation’s Capital aboard the DC Ducks, 1942 amphibious transport vehicles used to support and carry troops during World War II. Today they are a great way to see Washington by both land and sea. Winding our way first through the monuments, the Mall, the Capitol and museums of the Smithsonian before splashing into the Potomac and under the flight path at Reagan National Airport. Its fun for all ages!

It is an intersting experience to on road and water at same time. THe guide esplained that the boat-car is over 70 years old and still earning money by giving fun experience to people. I think it is Amazing.

It was fun and educational. Great way to spend the afternoon. You are on land and then in the water. You can see the planes flying overhead. The tour guide is funny and gives you lots of information.

Not overly expensive and rather relaxing. A nice way to get information on the city. You even get a boat ride!!

Every time I see Duck Boats, I have to get on board and check out the tour, so when I saw DC Ducks just outside of Union Station, I was all in. The tour was not hilarious, as it can be in some locations, upon...More

We did one of these in Boston some five years ago and it worked well but here in DC it did not. Why? Well the time you spend on water is poor. you go into a marina near the Pentagon and come out near Reagan...More

I find the comfort of the amphibious car-boat and the very enthusiastic guides fascinating. I am going on the tour once again with friends, because it is a unique perspective of Washington DC from land and river.

I have not done the Monuments Tour, but I do know that we viewed the few monuments from an angle that you can't see from a car or by foot. The Ducks tour was by far the most fun and enjoyable tour I think I have ever taken... More
