Last week, I had a great time playing tourist with my kids in San Francisco on the Ride the Ducks land and sea sightseeing adventure. It was a fun way to see San Francisco's historic neighborhoods as well as get some amazing photos of the City.
Our tour began at Fisherman's Wharf (at the corner of Taylor and Jefferson) where we hopped on our amphibious vehicle crafted from the WWII DUKW. Upon boarding, we were handed a duck caller which my kids loved and immediately started blowing. The "quackers" were a big hit with the kids and they were encouraged to quack along to San Francisco themed music throughout the ride. My kids truly enjoyed all the quacking but I found it difficult to hear the tour guide. I kept thinking, "shhhh" but soon realized to accept that it was all part of the fun.
Our adventure lasted approximately 90 minutes complete with lots of quacking and interesting tidbits (and several slap-sticky jokes) from our guide. We drove through neighborhoods including, China Town, Union Square, Ghiradelli Square, and North Beach before splashing down in the bay and cruising around McCovey Cove. Once we were floating on the water, our Captain let the kids take turns driving the boat--a true highlight of the day.

All and all we had a fantastic time. If you are looking for an out of the ordinary and entertaining way to see the city.... Go Ride the Ducks! For tour and pricing information visit Ride the Ducks San Francisco.
