It was really a fun tour. The Duck Boat drove all around Galveston. It went down Broadway to 61st, then to Offatts Bayou to go in the water. We rode all around the Bayou and the Driver showed us The Moody Gardens Pyramids from the water. Then we went down Broadway and through The Strand and down 25th/Rosenberg and back to the Duck Stop on The Seawall/25th. Yes, the water is brownish, but it's still a nice ride and a fun trip! The Driver made it interesting too, but he works for tips as well. I was born on Galveston Island, but I still learned a few things too!

Even though we are local, I wanted a day out with my husband. I often pass the duck tour and thought it was corny until I saw the vehicle drive into the water! I talked my husband into giving it a try and we loved it! The driver made us laugh and gave us more knowledge about local sites.

Take a bus tour. or take a boat tour. But don't blend two into one. It ain't worth risking your life.

Never, ever thought about doing a duck tour before our vacation in Galveston. It turned out to be a quirky little jaunt that we talked about for days! We had great weather and an entertaining driver. The transition from land to water was pretty interesting and the trip downtown was nice. We would have missed out on the whole downtown area had we not taken the duck tour. Hooray ducks!!
