Ducks & Boats to Ride this Summer in Wisconsin Dells!

Two famous tours that are a staple to Wisconsin Dells include the amphibious land & water Duck boats and the Wisconsin River boat tours. Generations have been visiting Wisconsin Dells to ride these boats and get a glimpse of the Cambrian sandstone and rock formations jutting from the Wisconsin River that are unique to this area! Here is our list of boat rides to take this summer in Wisconsin Dells!

A Duck Tour is a land and water tour on an amphibious Duck vehicle. In Wisconsin Dells, we have 2 great Duck companies. Dells Army Ducks and Original Wisconsin Ducks each provide their own signature tour of the Wisconsin River and even make a splash in Lake Delton. After leaving the “Duck Docks”, the vehicle travels on land while you learn about the history of the Dells area and how this city came to be. Then it’s time for the transition to water and the vehicle splashes in and the motor, propellor and rudder takes over! For those of you who have never experienced a Duck ride, it’s a one of a kind adventure for the whole family!

Dells Boat Tours offer historic tours of the Upper Dells on the Wisconsin River, the Lower Dells below the Kilbourn Dam, and also beautiful Sunset Dinner Cruises which combine beautiful scenery with delicious food and the musical talents of Dan Soma. All three of these tours pass by cliffs, famous rock formations, and cruise through the path cut by ancient glaciers. Also on Dells Boat Tours, you’ll hear amazing stories of the past and learn about the rich history of how Wisconsin Dells came to be!

For a more exhilarating boat tour on those hot summer days, a jet boat ride is definitely the most fun way to cool off! Both Wildthing Jet Boats and Jet Boat Adventures offer a thrilling experience on the Wisconsin River. Not only do you pass by famous landmarks along the banks of the river, but these flat-bottomed boats make crazy maneuvers like 360-degree spin-outs, power stops, and fast glides across the water! Be sure to have your towel waiting for you when you get back!!

This summer, if you haven’t tried a boat tour in the Dells, be sure to experience one before the season ends! For all the great activities in Wisconsin Dells, visit:
