Visit Oahu: Hawaii Duck Tours 2.0

They're hard to miss - they're big, yellow, and shaped like a boat yet they travel on land on 6 wheels.  They're called Hawaii Duck Tours and their new owners recently re-launched the company, making lots of great improvements to make the customer experience even better than before.

The vehicles they used are called amphibious trucks.  Originally manufactured by General Motors for use by the US Army and Marine Corps during WWII, they were designed to travel both on the water and on land.

Now, thanks to Hawaii Duck Tours, you can take a ride on one of these fully-restored historical vehicles and embark on a memorable tour of Pearl Harbor, and opt for a tour of either the Arizona Memorial or the Battleship Missouri.  You'll also head into the Hawaiian waters off Keehi Lagoon for a guided tour of Pearl Harbor and Honolulu.

I was fortunate enough to receive an invite to their kickoff party yesterday, which was held at Waikiki Aquarium.  We got to take a short ride through Waikiki on the Duck, and then we were treated to live entertainment and dinner catered by Superb Sushi and Corner Kitchen.  While our tour was just on land, I must say that the ride was surprisingly comfortable, thanks to padded seats and the open air cabin.
