Join us for a fun and completely unique tour of Dublin by land and water in our reconditioned World War II vintage amphibious militaryvehicles called "Ducks". Our costumed and colourful Viking Tour Captains will tell you all about the most exciting sights in Dublin: how the Vikings first settled the City over 1000 years ago and how Dublin has become a thriving, cosmopolitan European city. Finally, you’ll experience a real thrill as our Tour Captain drives the Duck into the waters of the historic Grand Canal Basin for the water portion of the tour. You may even be asked to give a Viking Splash Tours roar at passers by!
Our regular departure point is St Stephens Green north, just opposite the junction of Dawson Street.
Approximately every half an hour from Stephens Green during high season. Please call us on 01 707 6000 to check availability or to book your place on board.
Purchase tickets at the departure point, or call for credit card reservations on (01) 707-6000. Bookings are advised on weekends and during the high season. Sorry but tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable to other tour times or dates.
Viking Splash Tours is a family tour suitable for all ages, young and old. However, we do not have life jackets for children under three years old and they therefore cannot come on the water portion of the tour. If you would like to bring a very young child on the tour you must be prepared to come off the tour and wait on the quayside for the water portion (approx. 20 minutes) and rejoin the tour afterwards. In this instance there is no charge for the child, however the full ticket price does apply to the adult.
There are 28 seats on every "Duck". Seating is on a first come, first served basis. We board each tour 10 minutes before the official departure time. There are eight seats at the back of every "duck" that are not under the roof. In the case of rain the people who purchased the last eight tickets for the tour will be obliged to sit in those seats and will be notified before purchasing the tickets. We provide rain ponchos and umbrellas on all ducks for these seats.
We operate rain or shine. We reserve the right to cancel the water portion of the tour in extreme wind conditions. Each Duck has a roof and plastic pull down sides if needed. Tickets are non-refundable due to rain.
You do not get wet on the tour so a change of clothes is not necessary. We do recommend a jacket as it can get chilly on the water and the "Ducks" are not heated.
