History of the DUKW

The DUKW (or as we like to call them 'Ducks') was an amphibious landing craft developed by the United States Army during World War II. It was designed to deliver cargo from ships at sea directly to the shore. The DUKW (D-built in 1942, U-amphibious 2€ ton truck, K-front wheel drive, W-rear wheel drive) was equipped with a hull pump that could move 260 gallons of water a minute! It also came with a hand pump that could move 50 gallons a minute. It could climb a 60% grade and broach an 18-inch high obstacle. It had a range of 220 miles on land and 50 miles in water. It could carry a cargo load of 5,350 lbs., and hold 25 fully equipped troops.

Our main location at the northeast corner of 5th Avenue and Broad Street is across the street from Experience Music Project and the Space Needle, near the Seattle Center. The 5th Avenue & Broad Street location is open year-round. You can purchase tickets, board your tour and visit our gift shop at this location!

Our second location is at Westlake Center in the heart of downtown Seattle, just three blocks from Pike Place Market. Located near the Starbucks on the plaza at Westlake Center, you can purchase tickets and board from our DUWK-shaped kiosk from April through October and during the holiday season. During December, both our Original Land and Water tours as well as our Holiday Lights Tours depart from our Westlake location.
