Boston Duck Tours can be a fun experience for kids, Boston tourists, and more! It’s one of the best and most unique family-friendly things to do in Boston on the weekend. The amphibious vehicle spends time both on land and in the water, so it’s like two tours in one.

Of course, as such a popular attraction, ticket prices can add up quickly, but the good news is there are some easy ways you can get your hands on Boston Duck Tours coupons, promo codes, and discount tickets. Plus, you can learn more about how the company is operating during the current environment to keep guests safe.


About Boston Duck Tours

The Duck Boat tour is 80-minutes in length and depart from the Prudential Center, The New England Aquarium, and the Museum of Science. However, sometimes you can get better deals if you leave from one location over another. (There are usually fewer deals and specials from the New England Aquarium location, for example).


Enhanced Safety Measure for Boston Duck Tours

To keep all guests safe during these extraordinary times, Boston Duck Tours has enhanced its already-impressive cleaning standards.

“We recognize that the COVID-19 situation is constantly evolving. Boston Duck Tours has built on our already stringent cleaning processes. We have increased safety and cleaning measures to address concerns and provide reassurance in the current environment,” the company says on its website.

In addition to ongoing deep disinfecting procedures, Boston Duck Tours has reduced capacity to keep guests safely spaced apart, added hand sanitizer stations, instituted a mask policy requiring face coverings for all staff and guests, and more.
