Captain James and Mattie Anthony did a great job. Anthony Tour guide was a hoot, made you laugh and defintely put a smile on your face. Ninety minutes of land and water fun. If you haven't been on ride in this type of vehicle, it is worth the experience. Interesting facts and history about the area. Enjoyed it!!

Had the tour with Jacob and Captain James. Appreciated that the tour gave us a taste of the downtown area so we were able go back later and see the down town on foot. The narrative is corny but we felt it was a good overall taste of the town

It was a warm sunny day in Ketchikan so we decided last minute on this duck tour. What a beautiful town and a great low key way to see some of the highlights.

As part of our week-long cruise of Alaska, we decided to try something a bit different when we got to Ketchikan. We weren't disappointed. Our 90-minute amphibious tour was very interesting, but what made it stand out was the unique personality of our 'marrator', Anthony. Corny jokes and all, it made the experience unique.

Really great hospitality on this tour from both the 'Captain' and his right hand man. We were comfortably seated in the vessel with blankets to use if cold.

We booked this excursion last minute on our cruise ship just to get a little history as it wasn't lengthy and we wanted to do our own sightseeing. Our narrator was Emily.
