Seattle Ride The Duck with Kids

See Also

A great and very fun way to see Seattle is by taking the Ride The Duck tour of the city.

It’s an amphibious bus/boat that tours the city streets then pops into Lake Union to take in some of the sites (like the Sleepless in Seattle houseboat) that you can only see from the water.

Prices are as follows:

ADULTS $28 / KIDS 12 and younger $17
BABIES 2 and younger $1
ADULT & Quacker $30 / CHILD & Quacker $19


The tours depart daily from just east of Seattle Center (across the street from the EMP) from 10am to 4pm. There is also a downtown location near Westlake Center.

Reservations are recommended for the summer months. Drinks and snacks are allowed on board but you need to buy these in advance.

Tours take about 90 minutes. Be prepared to sing. A lot.

It's especially fun on a warm summer day. Bring a sweater as it can get chilly on the lake.
