Full description
The DC Ducks is the newest, most exciting way to see Washington. Climb aboard an authentic, fully restored 1942 “Duck” and your 90-minute adventure begins!

From Union Station you’ll head down to the Mall where you’ll see the awe-inspiring monuments and the Smithsonian museums. When the tour reaches the Potomac River you’ll splash down for a whole different look at the nation’s capital. From the land to the water, all in the same vehicle!

You’ll return to land at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport under the aircraft approach pattern. Hold your ears as incoming planes pass overhead, only feet from where you’re sitting!

The Ducks used for the tour are fully restored, U.S. Coast Guard-approved vessels. You’re guaranteed a safe and fun time that will delight you and every member of your party.
