  • Go Boston Card: Free tickets to the Boston Duck Tour for Go Boston Cardholders available in select packages/choices.
  • Daily Deal sites: LivingSocial and Groupon will occasionally post daily deals for discount duck boat tickets. LivingSocial usually has more offers, the beginning and end of the tour season typically, but no daily deal has been available for the 2017 tour season as of yet.

The Duck Boat tour is 80-minutes in length and depart from the Prudential Center, The New England Aquarium, and the Museum of Science. However, sometimes you can get better deals if you leave from one location over another. (There’s usually less deals and specials from the New England Aquarium location, for example).

If you are looking for another option to buy duck tour tickets from besides directly from the source or Goldstar Boston, you can check out Viator.

Tickets through Viator are full-price ($43.48/per adult) BUT if you are a new user/new e-mail subscriber sometimes you can get special offers like 10% off your first purchase at Viator (that’s the current offer that popped up for me anyway) or you can get a free $10 credit if you sign up through a referral link. Special offers or free credit can definitely help bring the price down and make for a decent deal, especially if the other offers above don’t work for you.
