Oh Great, It's Time to Ride the Ducks

R. Kennedy for GPTMC

Ride the Ducks is a 70-minute land-and-sea tour that travels through Historic Philadelphia before plunging into the Delaware River for a 20-minute cruise.

You know what they are, those ducks, and you know they annoy the crap out of you what with their incessant quacking and singing, but what you don't know is that this tourist-y little tour is actually fun!

Ride the Ducks is an exciting 70-minute tour that takes you through historic Philly -- starting at the Independence Visitor Center, moving through Old City and South Street before hitting the Delaware River where you can check out the Independence Seasort Museum, the Moshulu and much more.

“Ride The Ducks offers visitors a fresh perspective on the historical significance of Philadelphia,” said Greg Blumenthal, General Manager of Ride The Ducks Philadelphia in a statement.  “It truly is a unique and exciting way to experience our city.”

We agree.

And the captains on the Ducks only add to the experience with little-known Philly facts and sing-alongs.

You can Ride the Ducks seven days a week now through November. Get your tickets at the Independence Visitor Center for $27 (adults), $23 (seniors) and $17 (for kids 3-12).
