Have you seen Ride the Ducks open-sided white buses filled with smiling faces around Fisherman's Wharf, Embarcadero, North Beach an Union Square? Funny thing is, these passengers may well be singing and quacking as they drive through the city's historic neighborhoods on their way onto the bay.

Splashing good time

Ride the Duck's remarkable buses are amphibious; they splash right off the pier into San Francisco Bay to give visitors a fun way to tour everybody's favorite city on the water. See the Bay Bridge from the bay. See the San Francisco Giants' AT&T Park from the other side of the stadium...from the water. And, you (and the kids) can even get a chance to drive.

Plan ahead to pre-book your tickets, or just be spontaneous! Board your Ride the Duck right in the heart of Fisherman's Wharf. Just look for the famous Fisherman's Wharf sign at the corner of Taylor Street and Jefferson Street.

It's just steps from great seafood restaurants and top attractions such as Ripley's Believe It or Not, the new Madame Tussauds and San Francisco Dungeon, Pier 39 and the Aquarium by the Bay. But when attraction fatigue sets in, Ride the Ducks is a magnet for the younger (and the older) set.

Learning and quacking

Here's a way to get a fun and informative 90-minute San Francisco tour, courtesy of your captain. While you and your fellow passengers are singing and quacking away, be assured that your Ride the Duck vehicle has the latest in marine design and safety. They are regularly inspected, tested & certified by the United States Coast Guard, so you'll drive into the bay with no worries at all.

Of course, the Wacky Quacker is yours to keep as a souvenir.
