Spot an SF Ride the Ducks Tour in the Wild for a Chance to Win

duck_at_fishermans_wharf_side_barPlaying tourist in your own city is a way to see your backyard with new eyes. Last year we were lucky enough to take a unique tour around San Francisco, where despite living in the city and the Bay Area for nearly my entire life, we got to try something totally different. We took a duck tour, which begins and ends on land, but includes a trip *in* the bay, as well. Riders stay dry, this isn’t a log ride at an amusement park, yet it is the same amount of anticipation, surprise, and excitement.

After telling people that we did the Ride the Ducks tour, they always ask about getting in and out of the water. The answer is that yes, the boats truly drive in and out. We stormed the bay in our former WWII amphibious vehicle, this unique hybrid of a car and boat. Since that day, anytime we’ve seen a duck boat around the city, we yell out in excitement. It’s a fish out of water.

Keep searching for these mythical creatures, especially because now there’s extra reason to scope out a duck boat: if you capture a photo of Splash in the wild, you can win a free tour for yourself and a friend. Take a photo and post online for a chance to win a ride about the SF Amphibian!

Disclosure: We’ll be taking another Ride the Ducks tour this weekend! This time as a special outing for older family members, who grew up in San Francisco, yet have never taken any sort of city tour. They’re extremely excited to see their old neighborhood (the tour goes through North Beach) and to see old sights from a new perspective – especially McCovey Cove from the water.
