Explore Boston by land and sea with the Boston Duck Tour. The quirky vessel is actually a WWII—style amphibious landing vehicle. At the beginning of the tour, you will be greeted by your tour guide, called a ConDUCKtor, before boarding the Boston Duck. On the tour, you will see famous historical and cultural Boston sites, including Bunker Hill, Boston Common, Newberry Street and Quincy Market.

A Historical Vehicle on Both Land and Sea

The DUKW was created during World War II to accommodate the demands for a vehicle that could operate in water and convert to a truck once on ground. This modern, innovative military marvel placed an integral role in the Allied invasions in Sicily, the Pacific and on D—Day on the beaches of Normandy, France. Today, Boston Duck Tour operates a completely restored fleet of WWII—era Ducks that can transport 32 guests with an open—air back deck for the last eight seats. Boston Duck Tour has recently added nine modified DUKWs in addition to fifteen original DUKWs. The vessel that you take will depend of the number of people in your party and the time of your tour, but you can be sure that each vessel has its own unique appearance.

The combination tour provides the excitement of a maritime voyage with the unique experience of boarding on land, only to have your vessel convert into a military vehicle. As you are enjoying your ride, be sure to take a picture to remember your amazing experience aboard a mobile piece of American history. The tour lasts approximately 80 minutes when you depart from the Prudential Center or the Museum of Science and 55 minutes from the New England Aquarium.
