Popular amphibious tours to end, vehicles sold out of state
For nine years, it hasn’t been uncommon to hear an uncoordinated chorus of synthetic quacks take over the streets of downtown Albany. Each guest who climbs aboard an Aqua Duck trolley gets a colorful “Quacker Whistle,” shaped like a duck bill and emitting a distinct squawk. It’s been the attraction’s calling card, almost as notorious as the half on land, half on water tour itself.
