Be sure to buy the duck quackers when you get your ticket so you can join in the fun during this tour. The people who work here clearly love their jobs. Everyone was friendly and welcoming. Our captain was delightful and full of jokes. He was great with the children on board too. This is a great family outing. We did the tour on Table Rock Lake. There is another one on Lake Taneycomo as well.
It has been years since we did this so we took the younger kids for their first time. They all got to drive the duck on the lake which they loved. The captain was very engaging and shared bits of local and military history along the way. The only con would be that they try to sell you pictures and other junk just like every place else in Branson but they don't pressure you to buy it.
Very unique experience the best part is the tribute to our veteran's with the service site I call it where you tour and see the old army vehicles. The drivers are unique and some are funnier than others. The "Ducks" are a must for any day.
We loved the entire trip on the duck! Captain Blue was a great tour guide! Very entertaining and knowledgeable about the area and history of Branson! The ride into Table Rock Lake was so cool! The kids on the duck all got a chance to drive the duck in the water. The Baird mountain tour and the military history was amazing! Thank you for your recognition of the service men and women past and present!
