If you’re in Austin for a limited amount of time and want to make sure you see all of the popular sights, check out the amphibious tour offered by Austin Ducks. Part bus and part boat, this is a unique way to see the hip city of Austin both by land and by water. Admire the brick brownstones and plan your itinerary for the evening as you check out the top restaurants and bars along Historic Sixth Street. Take in a bit of history as you cruise by the State Capitol Building, the Bob Bullock State History Museum, and the Governor’s Mansion. There will surely be squeals of delight as you make a splash going from land to water into Lake Austin, as your vehicle transforms from bus to boat. Cruise around the river enjoying the lush green hillsides. Join a group tour or make it a private party for up to 44 people and bring your own food and drinks aboard. With 75 minutes of sightseeing in an unsinkable, US Coast Guard inspected, Hydra Terra vehicle, this is a safe, fun-filled way to see the city of Austin.
