At Galveston Duck Tours we offer a unique way of seeing the city. We start at 25th street and Seawall Blvd. Next to the Pleasure Pier. Your Captain will present to you Galveston Islands facts and present attractions. The Duck proceeds to enter the water at Offats Bayou, witch is located at 61st and Heards Lane. The protected waters of the bayou are ideal for boating and observing wildlife that thrive on and around our barrier island. We then drive the Duck back on to the streets and return to the historic East end of the city. Along the way your Captain will point out various mansions and century old buildings. Before returning to the point of departure. Your tour guide and captain will have given you a general overview of the many attractions and history of Galveston. …

It's fun! They do not provide the duck caller but you still get a tour through parts of Galveston. You go in the water. If you're lucky you might see dolphins but you gotta be really lucky. The tour guide was really thorough about safety. Had a lot of history to share about the city. Had a few mic issues but he worked through them and still kept us entertained.

We enjoyed the tour. Lots to see and of course the boat goes off land into the bay. Plenty of life vests on the boat we were on. They are old vessels and no seat belts so it felt a little wierd going straight into the water! The captain is very knowledgeable of the vehicle and the area. Lots of good history to soak in that was fun For me and my 11 year old. Oh, and they give a veteran, first responder distcount .

This was a fun tour of Galveston. I wish we were on the water a bit longer. We loved seeing the sights of the historical area. Loved hearing about the history of hurricanes. They leave from in front of pleasure pier. Tours start about every two hours. Great way to spend an hour! The tour is spread out well.

Land and water tour of Galveston. Excellent staff and customer service. 10/10 will take a tour or a ride with them again.

09/01/2023 The boat was a bit rusty, but it was still fun to experience. They took us to a lot more areas than I had expected and told us quite a bit of history. The boat was a cool experience to go from land to water, especially if you've never been on such a vehicle. The captain was funny and very knowledgeable. Would recommend.

Kids had a great time on the tour. I recommend the one at 6:00pm because you will get to see a beautiful sunset at Offatts bayou. Tour guide was knowledgeable about some good points of interest in Galveston. Being from the area and knowing a lot of history behind Galveston already, the tour kept us interested. Definitely recommend as a todo when in Galveston.

We really enjoyed the tour and ride. The weather was perfect, the guide was so informative, energetic and funny. We learned so much from his descriptions of interesting places and moments in history. Riding on a duck boat was on my bucket list and I was very excited to check it off. Highly recommend!!

If you enjoy history or just want to learn more about Galveston Island, this is a great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and did a great job of narrating throughout the tour, adding in interesting stories about haunted buildings and local wildlife. The open air vessel provided a nice breeze on the hot afternoon.

Great tour, the captain gave lots of history of the island. Well worth the Money and a great way to learn some history of Galveston

Get the best of both worlds with the Galveston Duck Tours. This amphibious vehicle can not only drive on land, but swim in the water!

Galveston Duck Tour Information

Typical tour times are daily at 11:00 AM, 12:30 PM, 2:00PM, and 4:00PM. However, the hours of operation are subject to change. The best way to find out the tour times for the day is by calling them on the phone and confirming the schedule. In addition, this exciting activity is weather-permitting.

Purchasing Tickets

In order to go on this tour, you must purchase tickets at the location where the duck loads passengers. This location is just to the left of the Pleasure Pier , across the street from Chick-fil-A. When driving down Seawall Drive, you will often see the vessel parked in its designated parking spot. The spot is marked with a sign that reads "Reserved for Duck Tours," so even if the vehicle is not there, you will be able to spot the location.

At the time of the tour, you will find an employee sitting in front of the vehicle. They will be collecting payment. We recommend arriving 15-20 minutes early in order to get the best seats and ensure you obtain a spot on the tour. The best place to sit is towards the back of the vessel. This is because you will get less wind in your face during the ride and you will be able to hear your guide more clearly.

What Will You Get on the Tour

This hour long excursion takes you up and down Seawall Boulevard. In addition, you will wind through popular and historic streets. Additionally, you will explore the Strand Historic District. When you go into the water, you will find yourselves in a popular and serene fishing bay.

Did you know that Galveston has the most bars per capita in the country? After this, you'll know more fun facts just like that. Throughout the tour, your humorous guide will enlighten you with tons of information, history , and dad jokes. You'll find out about the founding families and the geography of the island. Moreover, your guide will point out popular landmarks, local favorites , and fun activities on the island. For the best bang for your buck, this is a fabulous choice and it's great for kids!

For a more economic tour without all the information, you can take the Galveston Trolley Tour.

What’s Included

  • Humorous 1 Hour Tour with a Knowledgeable Guide
  • Hours are subject to change.
  • Tickets are not available online, you must purchase them in person. First come, first served.
  • Activity is weather-permitting.
