Duck Tours are offered in the warmer seasons with tours every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every hour on the hour. During the season, tours may be cancelled due to weather or water conditions and the company observes Memorial Day, Independence Day, and the Marine Corps Marathon. DC Ducks does not run duck tours from November – March.
The 90-minute tour begins at Union Station as you wind through town passing famous landmarks and monuments before the amphibious vehicle takes the plunge into the Potomac River to continue the tour.
It’s recommended, and cheaper, to purchase your tickets online, though available seats will be sold on the half-hour on a first-come, first-served basis at Union Station, 50 Massachusetts Ave. NE. Online tickets start at about $38 per adult or $42 in-person and $29 per child online or $32 in-person. The company offers package pricing to combine a ducks tour with a trolley tour or a visit to Arlington National Cemetery.
