$15 for a Holiday Duck Tour for Two ($30 Value)
On the annual Holiday Duck Tour, captains lead rollicking and joke-filled 40-minute sleigh rides full of seasonal spirit around downtown Seattle. Guests are encouraged to participate in the singing of holiday classics such as "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer," while soaking in the sights of holiday destinations such as Toyland Village at Pier 57 and Pike Place Market.
Though Ride the Ducks' usual tours are amphibious, the Holiday Duck Tour sticks to the streets after departing from Westlake Center. Tours run every half hour, and begin at 6 p.m. on weekdays and 5 p.m. on weekends. Early booking is required, as well as arriving 30 minutes early for boarding. The value of today's deal applies to adult tickets.
Ride the Ducks of Seattle
At Ride the Ducks of Seattle, captains welcome guests aboard 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. These vessels give passengers views of some of Seattle's most noteworthy sights, such as Pike Place Market, Pioneer Square, and the waterfront. The captains narrate each tour, cracking jokes and encouraging guests to make calls with Wacky Quackers, provided they say nothing rude in duck language.
