Make a splash in our Nation’s Capital aboard the DC Ducks, 1942 amphibious transport vehicles used to support and carry troops during World War II. Today they are a great way to see Washington by both land and sea. Winding our way first through the monuments, the Mall, the Capitol and museums of the Smithsonian before splashing into the Potomac and under the flight path at Reagan National Airport. Its fun for all ages!

Captain Franklin and Lucky Duck combined to make our first tour of DC a great one. My 4 year old grandson thoroughly enjoyed the trip, as did I.

We were lucky enough to be on Captain Steve's boat - he was informative, funny and engaging. We highly recommend this tour (and we've been on Duck tours in 3 other cities).
