During 75 minute tour on this ambhibious vehicle, you will get a duck’s eye view of the State Capitol Building, the Governor’s Mansion, the Texas History Museum, historical Congress Avenue and, of course, 6th street. Leaving the downtown area, the Duck made its way to Lake Austin. As we approached the lake, we located the boat ramp so I thought this would be a great photo opportunity. I had to move fast because after just a quick pause at the top of the ramp- the Duck took off and SPLASH into the water. The passengers (us not being among them) enjoyed a 20 minutes cruise on the Lake before returning to the Visitors Center.
Although we weren’t on board, we did get to see almost all the sights they saw, except we didn’t get to experience the cruise. As the Duck splashed into the water, we could hear the passengers’ reaction- one of exhilaration. In following the Duck, we felt like Mel Gibson in one of his chase scenes, trying to keep up. It was great fun.
Tours schedule vary somewhat with the seasons, so it is best to call and verify the times. There is always a 2:00 tour daily. The Duck Adventure has a wonderful and fun website (almost as FUN as the actual tour). Check out www.austinducks.com
Only one piece of advice- DON’T MISS THE DUCK !
