We had such an incredible amount of fun! The captain was hilarious!!!!! When we went out on the water, the captain gave my children a chance to drive the boat. They haven't stopped talking about it!! Very safe!!!

Great family fun. Great way to not only see the sights, but learn the history of the area. They even let the kids drive once in the water, with the supervision of the captain of course. Would recommend

I thought this attraction was unsafe as it wasn't recommended that we wear flotation devices and in case of being flooded and the curtains being down, I would consider it a death trap.

You will need a reservation at least 3 hours in advance to get a seat. This is the Table Rock Lake station, which is the classic version. Branson Landing ducks is on my bucket list, but have never ridden them.

The trip took about an hour and a half. Beautiful views of the lake from above and on the water.
