Thoroughly enjoyed this ride. We had the pleasure of having Captain Pierre and narrator, Emili. They were amusingly funny and entertaining. Emili gave us a wealth of interesting facts regarding the area. Make sure you ask for this team. You won't be disappointed.

Kind of hokey (but what do you expect from a Duck tour?) but so much fun and did a good job of accommodating my father's limited mobility.

Booked on pier after we walked off our cruise ship. Easy to book. Cheaper than booking an excursion with the cruise ship. Madison & Jerry were amazing!

I believe it was $49. You can purchase a ride once you arrive or directly through the Duck Tours website. It’s cheaper than using the cruise lines.

Follow signs as soon as you get off your ship. You can also check on board your ship for the excursion.
