Ketchikan Duck Tour

Experience the fascinating city of Ketchikan in the most unique way by land and by water thanks to an amphibian, state-of-the-art vehicle that will take you through the rustic streets and salty waters of Ketchikan.

This Coast Guard inspected and certified vehicle doubles as both a bus and a boat and is Alaska's only duck tour. Hop onboard the "Duck" with your licensed Captain to see the salmon ladder on Ketchikan Creek and the flower-filled sanctuary of Whale Park with its antique clock. You will also learn about Historic Ketchikan's colorful past as you visit Creek Street.

After touring the cultural and historical sites, leave the land behind and make a splash as you literally ride into the harbor at Tongass Narrows! Cut through the water on the modern state of the art Hydra-Terra vessel, with revolutionary positive buoyancy foam-filled compartments, designed and patented to stay afloat even with the drain plugs removed and the full engine room flooded.

Survey the local fishing fleet, fishing canneries, seaplane docks, and much more, along with Ketchikan's waterfront community. Throughout the tour, your guide will entertain you with fascinating facts and fun stories about the history and people of this southernmost city in Alaska.

This amphibious tour is the most fun and convenient way to see the best Ketchikan has to offer, sign up for this popular tour today not to miss out.

Ketchikan Duck Tour
October 13, 2019
We have been to Ketchikan a number of times and done many tours and have seen the Duck Tour boats and thought they were really funny looking! This time we decided to try it and I have to say we totally enjoyed every minute of it. Our tour guide Nick and Captain Peggy were so good. Nick told us things about the town we had never heard on other local tours. The transition into the water was seamless. So not only did you we get a tour of the land we also got to see the harbour and hear of some of it's history. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was such a wonderful excursion. What made it special was the Tour guide(she is also a young nursing student) and her Captain (I believe his name is Jim) They were very Informative providing a wealth of knowledge as we traveled through the scenic town and then the sea tour. I would highly recommend this tour.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tour. The Driver/Captain was entertaining as was our Guide. The Guide, Lee was a Ketchikan local and regaled the group with many interesting facts and anecdotes of his part of the world. Particularly enjoyed his view on why the Eagle Totem was positioned the way it was.
