About the Tour

Be ready for a unique tour experience with Albany Super Ducks!  Not only is Albany the capital of New York State, it is one of the oldest surviving European settlements from the original thirteen colonies and one of the ten oldest continuously occupied cities in the U.S. It is against this backdrop that your tour guide will give you many little known facts and interesting insights about our unique Capital City. Then comes the big splash… literally… as your captain takes your tour to the waters of the Hudson River for a spectacular view of the Albany skyline. It’s a great way to spend 90 minutes, have a lot of fun, and learn something new. There is nothing comparable to this type of tour in the Capital District.
