About Us

The Ketchikan Duck Tour is an independent, family owned and operated company that launched its first DUCK tour in 2001.

We’re the Only Legal “Quack Dealer” in Alaska!

The Ketchikan Duck Tour is an independent, family owned and operated company that launched its first DUCK tour in 2001. Alaska Amphibious Tours purchased its first Hydra Terra vehicle, manufactured exclusively for tourism, from CAMI (Cool Amphibious Manufacturers International) in Rochester, NY and drove it all the way to Alaska.

The Hydra Terra “DUCK” is likely the most unique vehicle you’ll see on the road or in the water. What started with a single DUCK and a vision to create a unique touring concept in Ketchikan quickly expanded to include a fleet of five DUCKS, all of which are named after the owner’s family.

We’ve built our business by listening to our guests, caring about their experience, and investing in the Ketchikan community as a whole. Yet what makes the Ketchikan Duck Tour exceptional is our incredible team of competent, dynamic, thoughtful individuals dedicated to providing outstanding customer service, leadership, and above all, a safe and memorable one-of-a-kind guest experience.

All our Captains hold a United States Coast Guard Masters license as well as a commercial driver’s license. They are CPR and First Aid certified and must complete a rigorous training program before transporting DUCK passengers. Our fleet of Hydra Terras is annually inspected by the USCG and the DOT, as well as daily by our full-time team of highly skilled, heavy duty marine and auto mechanics.

The Ketchikan Duck Tour is the only amphibious tour company in Alaska and operates May through September during the tourist season. Tourism is one of Alaska’s largest industries and we’re proud to be a part of it!
