Taking a ride on one of the Chattanooga Ducks is a very unique way to sightsee. The ducks are restored World War ll amphibious vehicles that were used mainly to transport soldiers behind the front lines on land and water. The ride, which lasts between 45 minutes to one hour, takes one from downtown on Chestnut Street to Ross's Landing, where the duck enters the TN River and goes under Market, Walnut, and Veterans Bridges, around Maclellan Island, and back to Ross's Landing downtown.

Maclellan Island is a nature preserve owned by the Audubon Society where wildlife is plentiful and often seen on these tours. The duck tour also provides great views of the Bluff View and Hunter Museum, Coolidge Park, the Aquarium, and some of the surrounding mountains. The captain also gives any kids on board the chance to steer the boat. Great tour for families!

Regular adult admission is $12
seniors - $10
children - $8
Call for reservations.
