Boston Duck Tour
The fun begins as soon as guests board the "DUCK", an authentic, renovated WWII amphibious landing vehicle. Cruise by the State House to Bunker Hill, Fleet Center, Boston Common and Copley Square to the Big Dig, and Quincy Market to the Prudential Tower. As the best of Boston unfolds before guests eyes, and just when they think they have seen it all, theres more - it is time for Splash Down as the DUCK splashes right into the Charles River for a breathtaking view of the Boston and Cambridge skylines. So take the ride of your life, and hop on a Boston Duck Tour.
