About the Ducks
The ducks are built resembling the WWII DUKW. The ducks use marine design for maximum safety and a regularly inspected and tested by the United States Coast Guard. in 2014, Ride the Ducks was awarded a 2014 Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor.

DUKWs
The ducks are based off of the WWII DUKW by design only. the DUKWs were first established in 1942 by General Motors and were essentially a truck enclosed in a water-tight shell. This would allow the DUKWs to go into the water without being flooded. Each letter in the name stands for something. The D means it was designed in 1942, U stands for utility (for amphibious purposes), K stands for front-wheel drive, and W means two rear driving axels.

The first known use of the DUKWs was in March 1943 when the United States landed Army troops in New Caledonia. In later times, the DUKWs were used to anchor ships to shore. The use of the DUKWs limited the number of casualties and were eventually made to carry 4.5-inch rockets. General Patton and General Eisenhower utilized the DUKWs to their utmost potential as a war tool and were continuously surprised at their abilities.

This ride is awsome and so are the captains. My husband and i took both tours and loved both of them. The captains told jokes and let everyone drive the duck including kids. We will definitely bring the whole family next year.
