Only Duck Experience in U.S. With Exciting Multi-Media Theater Component


NYC Ducks, New York City’s first ever land and water visitor experience, provides free Duck Quackers to each passenger
that climbs aboard.  Passengers will have plenty of opportunity throughout the tour to use these for a quackin’ good time. 
NYC Ducks, with its quack-tastic new duck mascot, Captain Henry, is the only half-boat, half-bus amphibious vehicle in
the nation with an exciting multi-media theater component.  In the NYC Ducks Theater, travelers are rocked and splashed
through a duck-umentory, replicating Henry Hudson’s stormy voyage across the Atlantic to the New World.  NYC Ducks
are now in service. 


Captain Henry, dressed as Henry Hudson and outfitted with a tri-cornered captains hat, long coat and boots, will be
present to greet visitors at promotional events. The new Duck Quackers are multi-colored and come in the form of a duck


The Duck fleet meets rigid safety and environmental standards and has been designed to evoke the memory of Henry
Hudson’s famous ship, The Half Moon.


The NYC Ducks route starts in Times Square, on the east side of Broadway between 47th and 48th Streets and navigates
the streets of Manhattan to the waters of the Hudson River.  Along the way, entertaining and informative tour guides point
out some of New York City’s world-famous sites.  At the edge of the Hudson, the Duck will enter the NYC Ducks
for an exhilarating multi-media experience, simulating Henry Hudson’s journey, complete with the sights and
sounds – the rushing wind and other surprises – of an Atlantic sea voyage.


Then the Duck splashes into the Hudson River for an explorer’s eye view of the New York skyline, something Henry
Hudson never saw.   After returning to land the Duck travels back to Times Square.


The total trip time is 75 minutes.  Ducks can accommodate 44 customers or shipmates plus two crewmembers.  NYC
Ducks will operate through October, and may extend through November depending on weather conditions.


Special introductory NYC Ducks fares are $19 for adults and $9 for children 3 to 11 years old.
