DC Ducks

From Union Station we will 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!

Our “wise quacking” captains will entertain you with anecdotes, well researched historical facts and the corniest jokes you’ve ever heard!

An Adventure of a Lifetime
This isn’t just a tour…it’s an experience. Sit back and relax as our tour captains turn back the pages of history.

Land and River in the Same Vehicle
Seeing Washington is one thing. Viewing it from the Potomac River is quite another. DC Ducks is Washington’s only thrill ride!

Something you Won’t Do on Any Other Tour
The Ducks return to land at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport under the approach pattern. Hold your ears as incoming aircraft pass over just feet from where you’re sitting …giving new meaning to sitting duck!
