“Fun and informative tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Our two guides did a great job of pointing out all of the historic sites and made our trip memorable.
We had great weather, it was very warm 77*. Our guide, a young man that was born and raised in Ketchikan was dying from the heat. He prefers cooler and rainy days. Our driver originally from Newport Beach, ca. was a funny and great guy to have driving us around town and out in the harbor, I highly recommend this tour, it was one of the best we had on our Alaska cruise.

“Fun excursion!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

This was our 2nd time in Ketchikan so we figured we'd do something fun and different. I would highly recommend the Duck Tour. It was very economical and was great. Our guides were Lee & Erik. They were very knowledgeable, patient and answered everyone's questions! It isn't a very long tour, but if this is your first time in the city I would take it early in the morning so you can see the city before you start walking it.

“Great way to tour Ketchikan!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2014

My family and I had a great time on the Ketchikan Duck Tour and we highly recommend it to others. It was very interesting and the amphibious tour bus was a wonderful way to see the Town. Captain Bruce and Alecia were spectacular. We learned a lot of local knowledge of the area and way of life in Ketchikan. This was one of the highlights of our Disney cruise and all of the family enjoyed it (kids ages: 14, 12, and 10). Thanks for a fun afternoon! -Jason

“Pleasant, dry way to see Ketchican”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

The Ketchikan Duck Tour was a great way to see around Ketchikan and learn her history. The Duck itself was comfortable with a plexiglass top and sides to keep you dry. (it WILL rain in Ketchikan). There are portals to open to take photos from and a few stops in which to do so.

As with all tours like this your experience will depend on your drive and guide. Ours (Aerec & Anthony) were fantastic! Just the right amount of humor and facts along with specific facts about present day Ketchikan - which is often missing on historical tours.

“Fun & Informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

My mom (89) and I had a great time on the duck tour with Captain Pierre and Anthony. They were both very entertaining, as duck tours usually are. Anthony is a native from there, so he was very knowledgeable about Ketchikan. We had to climb a ladder to get into the boat, but my mom was able to do it without her cane. It was sprinkling some, as it often does there, but the boat was closed in. There were portholes by your seat that you could open if you wanted to take pictures without taking them through the windows. We were allowed to stand to take pictures when the boat was stopped. This is a good introduction to Ketchikan. If you're on a cruise, you will probably still have plenty of time to shop afterward.
