Take a ride on the Original Ducks where a tour guide will give you and up to 19 other people a great ride and some interesting information about the area. The thrill of riding the ducks is a blast as you will go up and down the hills and splash into the water. There is a chance you may get wet so make sure you don't bring anything fragile or expensive on the ride just in case. It will probably stay safe, but you wouldn't want to take any chances. Depending on who your driver is they could take you fast or slow into the water. Usually the tour guide will ask the passenger what they prefer.
