Original Wisconsin Ducks
How about a ride on the Original Wisconsin Ducks! A trip to the Dells would just not be complete without a tour on the famous amphibious Ducks.
The Ducks are equipped to travel on land and water and they are the largest fleet of tour ducks in the nation. All the Ducks are named after famous military leaders or WWII battles. Of course, the Original Ducks or DUKW, were used by the military as war vehicles, and, even though the use of them were at first met with skepticism, they ended up being awarded for being the most celebrated vehicle of WWII.
The tour on the Wisconsin Ducks winds through beautiful scenery of the Wisconsin Dells. You will pass through narrow canyon walls of beautiful sandstone formations produced from the floodwaters of glacial lakes. You will travel the curves of Roller Coaster Hill and through Red Bird Gorge. It is a one hour, 8 1/2 mile tour that includes two land and two water entries in the Wisconsin River and Lake Delton. Your awesome guide will explain all the historical facts of the area especially when you pass through areas of where Indian tribes once lived.
