Gate Prices Adult $45.14

A Boston Duck Tour provides high-energy fun with a unique perspective on the history of Boston. Explore the streets of Beantown on a World War II style landing craft. Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, your guide takes you to the edge of the Charles River and drives right into the water for a ducks-eye view of Cambridge and Boston!

Your Boston Duck Tour will take you past the famous gold-domed State House, the trendy shopping district on Newbury Street, the politically-charged and geographically-challenged Beacon Hill neighborhood, and so much more! Get ready to lose your inhibitions and quack your heart out at other Boston Duck Tour boats you pass--the ducks all seem to know each other!

There are 2 departure points for Boston Duck Tour. Choose from:

  • Museum of Science - Original Duck Tour
  • New England Aquarium - Original Duck Tour

Once your landing craft turns into a "duck" in the water, you’ll have a duck’s-eye-view of Boston as well as neighboring Cambridge--home of MIT, Harvard, and loads of historic hotspots. The two distinct towns are neatly divided by the Charles River, and on your Boston Duck Tour, you’ll have the chance to see both.

What other sights might you see, courtesy of your high-energy and uniquely clad “ConDUCKtor”? While each tour is different, here’s a preview of many of the sights:

  • Trinity Church
  • Hancock Tower
  • Prudential Center
  • Boston Common and Boston Public Garden
  • “Cheers”
  • Robert Gould Shaw Civil War Memorial
  • Holocaust Memorial
  • Union Oyster House (purported to be the oldest restaurant in America)
  • TD Garden (home of the Boston Celtics and Boston Bruins)
  • Bunker Hill Monument and Historic Charlestown
  • Leonard P. Zakim Cable Bridge
  • Old North Church and The Italian North End
  • King’s Chapel & Granary Burying Ground (burial site of three signors of the Declaration of Independence)

Climb aboard a super-cool amphibious tour vehicle that is part boat, part bus, and a whole lot of duck. Get to know your Boston tour-guide, who, alongside a licensed captain will guarantee you a whole lot of laughs and a memorable trip that promises a “quacky” and fun look at Beantown and its attractions!
