Ketchikan Duck Tour Excursion Reviews
Great little 1 hour tour showing much of the town, including a splash into the water and tour of the harbor. Really enjoyed it informative and reasonably priced. Great weather to partly sunny 64.
The guide and driver were very entertaining. We did not see any wildlife but enjoyed a drive around the city and then around the harbor. The walk we took on our own was as good as the tour. We saw salmon jumping upstream and a pool with seals frolicking and eating salmon.
Very enthusiastic guides! Worse leg room than on an airplane. Due to the lack of leg room, we are reluctant to book another duck tour, and definitely not again in Ketchikan. I have short legs, and my spine was jammed into the seat while my knees are jammed into the seat in front of me.
A little slow without many sights, but the experience of land and sea tour was still worth the price. If you only want to take one cDuck tour do it in Victoria.
Captain Erik and tour guide Patrick were very entertaining. Saw the highlights of Ketchikan in a fun way, including at least a dozen bald eagles perched along the route.
Pleasantly surprised by this tour. Great tour guides. Saw Bald Eagles and Sea Lions. A fun tour.
Watch the salmon prices! one store was offering a great deal at $40, but a bunch of the nick nack stores, same product 29.99
The Duck is a bus that takes you on a city tour and then turns into a boat when it gets to the harbor. There you get out on the water and see the city from another prospective. The operators are fun and seemed to be having as much fun as we were. This was the second time we have been on this excursion. Enjoyed it both times.
A duck tour is a great way to see a lot of the area and soak up some history. Take an early tour so you can still walk through town.
The town has great signage for viewing the spots of local interest.
The narration was very informative as I did not know before that stairways could be deemed legal streets. Living some 30 - 40 steps or more up off a main street would give you pause to consider what you needed each day. And as the narrator of the tour said, you would usually only forget something once.
It was a sunny beautiful day in Ketchikan and everyone was enjoying the incredible weather. The water was calm as our little Duck Tour boat made its way in and out of the water
A fun tour with a great guide and driver. They kept us entertained while imparting information about the area. By the way, both women are ex-military.
Ship was docked right in town and the tour was fantastic and the host Lee was so informative.
The duck tour was entertaning and informative. Driver + guide is a good combo vs. single talking drivers on other tours. Both driver and guide were funny and "quacked us up" continuously. About the only thing on the entire cruise I didn't feel overcharged for were the $2.50 quackers we got from the duck tour, which the kids loved and my wife soon loathed (haha!).
Duck Tour was decent price-performer (not a real WWII duck -- like in Boston -- but a Ford truck that had been converted). Easy to book your own duck tour once you get off the ship -- not sure if there is a savings. Provided good overview of the town area. BTW, two of the most important touristy things -- Lumberjack Show & Totem Pole park are easy walking distance from the ship.
It was ok - tour guide had a cheesy and annoying sense of humor (so much so, I wasn't always sure if what he was telling us was a fact or a joke).
Not much of a tour but pretty fun.
Lee was excellent as narrator on the Duck Tour..
So much better than our Duck Tour in Boston. These are brand new Duck Boats, and they glided in and out of the water effortlessly. Our tour guide was great and super enthusiastic about the subject matter. Was over and above what we had experienced in the past, and getting to buy our very own duck whistles was a hoot!
Because we were on a 14 day cruise and had done excursions on the Northward leg of the Cruise we had not booked anything for the southern leg and so we took a fun tour of Ketchikan in an amphibious vehicle and it also goes into the water down a boat ramp for a view of Ketchikan harbor, it is 90 mins long and the fellow that we had was humorous and knowledgeable about the area
Short, informative, cost effective tour.
Katchikan attractive city with friendly people. The duck tour was perfect for us since we got to see the town and the harbor. Nice seats on duck and comfortable ride. Tour guide was enjoyable and fun.
Duck felt very safe in the water.
Good guide and driver, silly duck calls purchased by nearly everyone made the trip a bit noisy at times
Always enjoy the duck tours - again a great local experience and a good price. Ketchikan has some great walking area's and dining - so I am glad we left our day open to enjoy the town.
Good fun and very informative tour - need to be able to climb a short ladder in/out of the Duck
Good overview of the town with glimpses of the salient points of interest. Land and water tour. Bring a jacket if seated in the back by the open windows!
the duck tour was great fun......it was entertaining and informative......the highlight was when we happened upon many, many bald eagles. our guide explained they had probably finished eating at a fish plant and that is why they were there.....entire group was fascinated......
