Just Ducky Tours resuming Pittsburgh operations in April
Quack, quack — duck boat tours are coming back.
Just Ducky Tours, which operates eight World War II-era amphibious craft out of Pittsburgh’s Station Square, announced on its website that it will be resuming its land and water tours in mid- to late April.
The company ended its 2018 season in September, canceling tours that had been scheduled through November.
That came after duck boat companies across the nation grappled with declining ticket sales following the July 19 sinking of a duck-style tour boat during a heavy storm on Table Rock Lake near Branson, Mo. Seventeen of the 31 people aboard the Ride the Ducks vessel died.
Just Ducky is not related to the Missouri company. Co-owner Christopher D’Addario said its vessels are safe.
Safety protocols are posted on its website.
Just Ducky is hiring for its upcoming season. Applications are available on its website.
Ticket costs for 2019 are $25 for adults, $15 for children ages 3 to 12, and $5 for infants ages 2 and younger.
