Tours

There’s no better way to see Rotorua and its beautiful lakes than on a Duck

Moving effortlessly from land to water, our WW2 amphibious vehicles are a pretty awesome way to explore all that Rotorua has to offer. Whether you’re a bit of a history buff, or you’re keen to see what famous Mount Tarawera looks like, or you’re looking for a Rotorua Attraction and are keen on something fun – Rotorua Duck Tours fits the bill!

The Ducks are now heated for winter! We have clear roll down sides, blankets and heaters on board the Duck. Our lakes are very sheltered and don’t get affected much by weather, if anything they get more beautiful! We are prepared for all weather!

lots of laughs
What a great day we had. Our tour guide Marcus was very knowledgeable on the history of Rotorua. Had a great sense of humour with plenty of laughs, from start to finish, especially with our complimentary duck whistle. If your ever in Rotorua this is definitely a must do tour.

Had an absolute blast

My sister and I took my two kids on a 90 minute tour which included going onto the Blue and Green Lakes. It was so much fun. We had a driver and tour guide that were a lot of laughs. The kids found it so entertaining and there were plenty of facts and info for adults too. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for something different to do.

Duck Boat tour

We had an awesome time on our duck boat tour today - with a very entertaining tour guide (Shelly) who kept us laughing... the rain didn't stop us from enjoying ourselves either! Definitely recommend it! Thanks guys 🙂

Rotorua from another nice perspective

The Duck Tour is a very great opportunity to discover beautiful Rotorua and its surroundings. On a really funny tour we learned a lot and saw amazing landscape and lakes. Very unique because of this really cool vehicle, where else can you drive a duck on your own?! I would highly recommend the Duck to everybody who wants to have a special experience in Rotorua!
