DC Ducks Tour
About DC Ducks Tour
Join in for the most unusual tour you'll ever take. DC Ducks is the newest, most exciting way to see Washington. Climb aboard an authentic, fully restored 1942 "Duck" and let the adventure begin!
From Union Station you'll waddle down to the mall where you'll see the awe inspiring monuments and fabulous Smithsonian Museums. Then at the Potomac River you'll splash down for a whole different look at the nation's capital. From the land to the water, it's ALL IN THE SAME VEHICLE!
The wise quacking captains will entertain you with anecdotes, well researched historical facts and the corniest jokes you've ever heard! Ducks depart hourly from Union Station. The 90 minute, fully narrated tour covers the mall, museums, monuments and splashing down in the Potomac.
Guests will enjoy a scenic river cruise, wind up at Gravely Point, underneath the flight path of the landing planes at National Airport.
