Owner description: Did you know The designation of DUKW is not a military pun - the name comes from the terminology used for military vehicles in World War II; the D indicates a vehicle designed in 1942, the U meant "utility (amphibious)", the K indicated all-wheel drive and the W indicated two powered rear axles. Although technically a misnomer, DUKWs are often referred to as duck boats. Another popular nickname was old magoo or simply magoo. Though the origin of this term is unknown, it probably refers to the odd shape of the vehicle. DUKWs became known as ''Ducks'' and are still in use, as well as purpose-built amphibious tour buses, primarily as tourist transport in harbor and river cities.

Not your average tour - lots of interesting sights and information! Great for kids and adults! Bill was an excellent guide and patiently allowed all of the kids to “drive” the Duck on the river!

Fantastic. Not only fun but a great learning experience. Our guide knew his history and we saw things from the water we might not ever have known about had we not taken this trip.
Worth the money. Very professional company and we were assured of our safety on the water. Coast Guard approved and certified.

Two adults a 12 and 10 year old in our group. We all had a great time. The guide shared a lot of interesting facts about the area and the amphibious vehicles themselves. We have recommended the experience to friends who are currently staying downtown in Chattanooga now.
