What You'll Get
Herbert Hoover won America's hearts and votes when he promised a college-educated chicken in every pot and an amphibious tour vehicle in every garage. Get a taste of the American dream with today's Groupon: for $17, you get one ticket for a duck tour with Bay Quackers at Fisherman's Wharf (a value of up to $35).
Bay Quackers gives its customers a multifaceted tour experience from the dually equipped confines of a DUKW (or Duck), a refurbished World War II–era military craft capable of navigating land and sea. Half tour bus, half tank, and half marlin, each vintage vehicle is equipped with six-wheel drive and tires that inflate and deflate to match the terrain. Quack suggestively at passersby as you wheel through neighborhoods such as North Beach, Chinatown, and Union Square, then gape in slack-jawed astonishment as your driver plunges directly into the sea without incurring a fine or consulting an insurance agent. The seafaring leg of the journey includes aquatic highlights such as McCovey Cove and San Francisco Bay, as well as city and bridge views unattainable from the woefully conventional perspectives of the shore. Each tour lasts approximately 80 minutes.
Unlike regular ducks, Bay Quackers' sightseeing steeds require neither a radioactive diet nor a specially made harness in order to carry passengers. Canopies keep the vehicular vessels on guard against sky tears, allowing passengers to be literally sandwiched by water without getting wet. Tours depart several times a day and run seven days a week through the end of October, after which Bay Quackers operates Fridays and weekends through December.
