Explore Dublin like never before across land and water, diving deeply into the beautiful culture and history of the city. Viking Splash Tours offer an engaging, interactive experience for all kinds of groups! Not only are we Dublin’s only amphibious tour, showcasing our city by land and water, we are also a real, living theatre with hilarious local guides who are sure to keep you entertained.

With flexible and customised tours for groups or individuals, Viking Splash Tours can provide a platform for a range of occasions from team-building to birthdays, hen parties to family reunions.
  • Explore Dublin, land and water, on a restored World War II amphibious vehicle
  • Gasp as your “duck” drives into the water and transforms into a boat
  • See top Dublin attractions, including the castle and two cathedrals 
  • Roar like a Viking and wear comical Viking-style helmets
What to Expect
Board your restored World War II-era landing craft in central Dublin, greet your entertaining guide, and don your Viking helmets to start the land portion of your tour. Delve into Dublin’s rich history—not only its Viking past—as you pass attractions like Mansion House, home to Dublin’s Lord Mayor, elaborate St. Patrick’s Cathedral, 12th-century Christ Church Cathedral, and the turrets of Dublin Castle. Roar like a Viking as your vehicle transforms into a boat and splashes into Dublin’s Grand Canal Dock for the watery part of your Dublin duck tour. Cruise back to your original departure point, exit the water, and bid your guide farewell.

A broken bus, annoying Italian kids and a little rain could not spoil this tour. Great fun!!! Brendan and Connor were our great guide and driver, we scared a few people with our roars, and even learned a few things about the city of Dublin.

Fantastic tour - would recommend this to anyone. It was informative but most of all was fun, fun, fun. The kids absolutely loved it. Shelley, our guide, was great. Thanks to both her and to our driver Lido - great job all round.

Hi, I think the tour runs every 30-45 minutes throughout the day up until around 17.30. When on their website, you select the number of tickets and then allows you to pick the time that suits Hope this helps and enjoy!
