What is a Duck? – Rotorua Duck Tours

A “Duck” is a WWII landing craft which has been refurbished into the vessel you’ll be touring around in. These landing crafts were an important part of winning battles in the Pacific and Europe. Originally nicknamed the DUKW, the letters represented D (1942), U (Amphibian) K (Front-Wheel-Drive) W (Rear-Wheel-Drive).

Rotorua Duck Tours – Unique New Zealand Tour Experience

Rotorua Duck Tours offers one of the craziest tours across Rotorua. They offer both a 90 minute tour (Rotorua City and Lakes) and a 120 minute tour (Tarawera and Lakes) as you ride around the streets in what looks like a boat-bus on wheels. It doesn’t just look like a boat-bus on wheels, though because it actually IS a boat-bus on wheels. Your tour will eventually land you in the water where you’ll continue your aquatic tour. Your tour guide or conDUCKtor will have you rolling with laughter throughout the tour as well.
