Saw little of the city: I had seen more on a similar duck tour 6 years earlier. Humor by our "guide" was infantile and repetitive. Duck went into the water, drove in a slow circle, and came out: no real advantage.

Very fun tour guide! And I didn’t even expect to spend that much time on the ocean! It was a beautiful day and a great way to see both the city highlights and go out on the water. You can even see seals if you are lucky!

It was a cool and slightly rainy day but the tour was still enjoyable. The captain and the tour guide were excellent. The guide kept us laughing the whole time. We saw many interesting places and the "boat"
ride was very cool.
