Group Booking

Our tours depart daily all year round from 10:00am from the Albert Dock. During quiet times we run every 75 minutes and during busy times every 15 to 30 minutes.

We can provide a vehicle for groups of up to 30 passengers on each duck.

If the group is comprised of both adults and children we do need to apply a minimum ratio of adults to children for safety purpose.

1 adult to every 2 babies (Under 2 years old)

1 adult to every 5 school aged child (2-11 years old)

1 adult to every 10 sixth form aged child (12-17 years old)

In the case of groups with disabled passengers, we need to address the number of carers on an individual basis. In the case of a water-side emergency there needs to be sufficient carers for each individual disabled person to assist any evacuation needed.

The judgement regarding carriage of limited mobility or disabled passengers is basically left up to the disabled person concerned, (or carer) in that if they can safely negotiate the steep steps, we will accept them for carriage in that this also illustrates a level of capability for emergency evacuation.

Groups need to arrive in sufficient time for toilet breaks if needed; these facilities are a good 15 minute round trip for an able bodied person.

We can only take 2 babies (under 2yrs) free of charge on each tour with prior arrangement and they do need a boarding card.

There is no space on board the vessels for wheelchairs, buggies, prams etc, these may be left in the sales office at the owner’s risk.

The Ducks are over sixty years old and there may be times when they become unserviceable at short notice. In these circumstances we will try to provide an alternative tour, or offer you a full refund.

We offer a range of rates, the cheapest being off peak, normal scheduled tour times, starting and finishing at our bus stop, the most expensive being a specific non standard time with non standard pick up and drop at peak times. We can agree a limited range of pick up and drop off points within or close to our published routes for specially booked tours.

It is essential that groups arrive and are ready to board the vessel after having collected their tickets 15 minutes before the departure time.

We cannot give refunds for late arrivals.

Tickets must be collected 15 minutes prior to departure from out Ticket Office in Anchor Courtyard, between Atlantic and Britannia Pavilions, and you need to be at the bus stop and able to board 10 minutes prior to departure time.

Our definition of a group is ten or more; below this normal individual tour prices apply.

A group of ten or more can share a regular commercial tour with other passengers at standard price rates with a discount rate of 10%, however booking and payment must be made at least 48 hours in advance for this discount to apply.
