Can I bring water or snacks onboard the Ducks?
Of course! Yes, you can bring food or drinks on board the Duck. There is a gift shop on location where you can purchase water, soda, snacks and candy, but please remember: this is a continuous tour without a restroom on board. We do recommend you “go before you go” and alcohol is not allowed.
Are dogs allowed?
Pets are not allowed on the Ducks, but we do allow service animals on board with proper documentation. Although it’s not required, we ask that you make reservations in advance over the phone so that we can be sure to reserve a complimentary seat for your service animal. Additionally, the USS Alabama offers a complimentary kennel where your dog may stay during the duration of your time at the park.
Can I bring a stroller with me?
Kids love the Ducks and we are able to store your stroller in our stroller parking area when you depart from the tour. Unfortunately, strollers are not allowed onboard the Duck. Gulf Coast Ducks is not responsible for items stored at our location during your tour so please bring any valuables with you on the Duck.
Do I need a car seat for my infant?
No car seat needed! The inside of the Duck looks like a school bus with bench-style seating for groups of two per seat. There are no seat belts on the Duck, so we don’t recommend car seats, but you’re welcome to bring a small baby carrier for the very little ducklings in your party. All guests need a ticket whether they are 3 months old or 103 years old, so no matter the age of the child, a seat will need to be reserved for him or her. Tickets for infants (0-2 years) are complimentary.
Are the Ducks handicap accessible?
Due to the vintage nature of the vehicles, Gulf Coast Ducks is not handicap-accessible at this time. All guests must board and de-board via eight steps on the back of the Duck. There are handrails and we can allow for additional time for boarding, but guests should be able to climb the stairs and sit on their own for the full 60–minute tour. We’d be happy to store a walker or wheelchair next to our ticketing location. Gulf Coast Ducks is not responsible for items stored at our location during your tour so please bring any valuables with you on the Duck.
Is there a restroom on the Duck?
There are no restrooms on board the Ducks, so we recommend you “go before you go”! A restroom is conveniently located at the USS Alabama gift shop located just next to our ticketing kiosk and loading zone.
Will I get wet on the tour?
It’s not likely that you’ll get wet but these are Ducks and they do go in the water. Just watch out for that middle back seat. We call that one “the Soggy Bottom.”
What if I miss my tour?
All reservations are non-refundable, non-exchangeable tickets. Please arrive 30 minutes in advance of your departure time so you don’t miss the most entertaining experience along the Gulf Coast.
