Owner description: Did you know The designation of DUKW is not a military pun - the name comes from the terminology used for military vehicles in World War II; the D indicates a vehicle designed in 1942, the U meant "utility (amphibious)", the K indicated all-wheel drive and the W indicated two powered rear axles. Although technically a misnomer, DUKWs are often referred to as duck boats. Another popular nickname was old magoo or simply magoo. Though the origin of this term is unknown, it probably refers to the odd shape of the vehicle. DUKWs became known as ''Ducks'' and are still in use, as well as purpose-built amphibious tour buses, primarily as tourist transport in harbor and river cities.

Two adults a 12 and 10 year old in our group. We all had a great time. The guide shared a lot of interesting facts about the area and the amphibious vehicles themselves. We have recommended the experience to friends who are currently staying downtown in Chattanooga now.

I purchased tickets for my son and I on groupon and it was absolutely seamless from start to finish! The trip was a great price and was perfect for my 5 year old. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and let all the kids on the boat drive which I think really makes it memorable for them. I recommended this to several people over the break and would definitely do it again!

We were really impressed with Chattanooga Ducks. We were running late due to I-75 traffic and we called to see if we could push our reservations back an hour and they had it done within seconds. The driver was very nice and was well versed with the history of the vehicle and facts about Chattanooga that was interesting. He also had a good sense of humor! Seeing the riverfront of Chattanooga from the perspective of the Chattanooga Ducks is worth the experience in itself. It's not everyday you get to see the beauty of the city like we did that day!

Okay, it was a rainy old day and my companions were a scout troop, so not the most auspicious set-up. If the commentary had been interesting it would have saved the day, but, sadly, not the case. What saved the day was when the captain let us all take a turn driving on the river.
