Ride the Duck Boats
About Riding the Duck Boats:
The Duck Boats are a fun Thing to do in Boston that gives you a chance to see some of the most important sights in the city in a fun and unique way. The Duck Boats are WWII landing vehicles. After you tool around the city seeing sights such as the Holocaust Memorial, Quincy Market, Bunker Hill, the Old South Church and many others you will drive right into the Charles River!
After Splashdown, as Duck Tour operators call it, the boat will meander leisurely down the river as guests enjoy a gorgeous view of the Boston City Skyline. Tour operators, called conDUCKtors, narrate the entire tour in a comical and memorable way. Sometimes the conDUCKtors even allow a guest to steer the Duck Boat while on the Charles River.
Duck Boat Tours depart from three Boston locations:
- The Prudential Center
- The Museum of Science
- The New England Aquarium
The Prudential Center and Museum of Science Tours are about 80 minutes in length. The New England Aquarium Tours are about 65 minutes in length. The cost for the 80 minute Tours are $34.99 for adults, $23.99 for kids ages 3 to 11 and $10.50 for children under 3, including infants. The cost for the 65 minute Tours are $31.99 for adults, $20.99 for kids ages 3 to 11 and $10.50 for children under 3, including infants.
Many guests at The Boston Park Plaza Hotel have enjoyed a Duck Boat Tour, but keep in mind that the Duck Boats do not operate during the winter months. For 2014, operation of the Duck Boat Tours leaving from the Museum of Science and the Prudential Center will resume on March 17th. Tours leaving from the New England Aquarium will resume on April 1st.
During your next stay at our Boston Hotel, get ready to have a great time – and, perhaps, get a little wet – while you enjoy this hugely popular Thing to do in Boston.
