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!

While we've been to DC many times, we've never done this tour. It was wonderful! You ride in a WW II duck boat which can drive on land and in water. We have two teenagers who loved the experience, and there were several small children...More

We had a great time on this tour, Captain Steve was funny and very knowledgeable from the moment we were on the "Rubber Duck". Would do this again.
