About Riding the Duck Boats:
The Duck Boats are a fun way to learn about the City while enjoying a ride that takes you from street to splashdown. This San Francisco Activity, which leaves from Fisherman’s Wharf, takes place in a specially-designed vehicle that resembles World War II amphibious vehicles.

As the Duck Boat winds through historic City streets, the conductor will narrate and point out interesting facts about the neighborhoods you visit. Then, for one of the highlights of this San Francisco Activity, you’ll splash down into McCovey Cove and enjoy a lovely view of the City. During the tour, which lasts about 90 minutes, you may even have the chance to drive the craft.

Tickets for this San Francisco Activity can be purchased onsite, but it is a good idea to reserve your tickets in advance. Because this is such a popular Activity, it is not unusual for the tours to sell out, especially during peak times.
