gulf-coast-ducks-amphibious-vehicles

For a unique perspective of the Mobile area, board a Gulf Coast Duck amphibious vehicle next time you are vacationing in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Orange Beach or Perdido Key.

Amphibious 'Ducks' Give Tours By Land & By Water

A new attraction is quacking its way to the Alabama Gulf Coast—the Gulf Coast Ducks.

Already operational in Boston; Branson, Mo.; Cincinnati; and Seattle, the extremely popular amphibious fleet of vehicles will be stationed at the USS Alabama.

Passengers will be able to board one of the Ducks and tour USS Alabama Battleship Memorial Park, downtown Mobile, Mobile Bay and the Mobile River.

The boats were used in the 1940s during World War II, most notably on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, making it a natural fit for Memorial Park.

A visit to the Ducks and the USS Alabama would make for a great day visit during your next beach vacation to Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Orange Beach or Perdido Key. Bring the whole family and stay in a three- or four-bedroom condo on the beach.
