from DC Ducks
See the famous Smithsonian Museums and many other magnificent Washington DC points of interest…then hold onto your seat as you head straight for the Potomac River, and take the big splash!
On board the DC Ducks Tour you’ll enjoy the area’s most extraordinary sightseeing excursion while riding in an authentic, fully restored DC Duck vehicle. The Ducks were created in 1942 following the attack on Pearl Harbor and became a vital means of transporting supplies from ships to areas that did not have port facilities. The vehicles were built by encasing two and a half ton GM trucks in a watertight shell.
Now, one of the most entertaining ways to sightsee in Washington DC, the DC Ducks take guests on a journey through the city to see various malls, monuments and museums before heading to the Potomac for a leisurely river cruise. Along the way, our expert Conducktors will amuse and enlighten with intriguing facts, historical accounts and tales about our capital city.
And the best part, it all takes place in one vehicle, without you ever having to leave your seat! Once in the river, the DC Duck Tour will sail past various spots of interest, including Gravely Point, where you may just glimpse an airplane overhead as it soars in for a landing at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.
Take the children, grab your friends and head out for a 90-minute adventure that’ll thrill and delight you all. The DC Ducks Tour departs every 30 minutes from Union Station.
