Where do the Branson duck boat rides depart?

When do I need to arrive?
All passengers should arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure/launch. This time is needed to check-in and get you seated.
What clothes should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. You will need to climb a small ladder to the board the vessel. They also recommend a light jacket, since it can get cool on the open air, amphibious vehicle. Branson Duck Tours set sail rain or shine, but they are constantly monitoring the weather. If the staff or the coast guard determine that sailing is not safe, they will cease all tours.
Is the tour fun and safe for all ages?
Yes! Guests of all ages will safely enjoy the tour, from young children to older adults. It is safe for pregnant women, as well.
Do people get seasick?
The boats are engineered not to sway, and guests rarely get seasick. If you are extremely susceptible to motion sickness, you may want to take preventative actions for your own comfort.
Is there a place for my child’s stroller?
To ensure easy access and comply with emergency exit protocols, strollers are not allowed on tours. Please keep all strollers in your vehicle or at the kiosk while on the tour. Baby seats are allowed on board.
My child will sit on my lap, do I need to buy him/her a ticket?
They are required by the U.S. Coast Guard to count every guest on board. Even though the child will be on your lap, they must still have a ticket. Children 0 - 2 years old may purchase a ticket for $1. By having a ticket for every guest, they ensure that they stay at the approved limit of passengers.
