Ride The Ducks
Part of the Herschend Family Entertainment Corporation?which also operates amusement destinations such as Dollywood and San Francisco's Classic Cable Car Sightseeing?Ride The Ducks ranks among the nation's largest amphibious-tour operators and is Philadelphia's only land and water experience. Captains welcome guests aboard amphibious vessels based on a 1940s General Motors military vehicle called the DUKW that served as an indispensable resource to both General Patton and General Eisenhower during World War II.
At Ride The Ducks' six locations–Branson, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Stone Mountain, Guam, and Newport–these vessels roam the streets and glide in and out of local waterways to give passengers views of each city's most noteworthy sights, from the Liberty Bell to the Bay Bridge. The captains narrate each tour as well as encourage guests to make calls with Wacky Quackers, provided they say nothing rude in duck language. Every vessel maintains US Coast Guard standards, such as maintaining a plentiful stock of personal flotation devices.
very entertaining without overdoing it and we spotted a few destinations we wanted to return to after the tour. So fun for the kids and adults!Moe C., Yelp, 4/13/13
