This is a stress free tour with a lively Captain- ours was Darryl- that will provide a great overview of downtown Austin and a nice cruise on the Lake. Just book it! Quack, quack!🦆

We had a great time with Darryl today! He was very knowledgeable about Austin and showed us all around town. Its always fun to splash-down on the duck boats. We bought our tickets online and check in was no problem.
