Spotlight on: Duck Driver Zach Olsen

This weeks blog is a spotlight on our very own Duck Driver, Zach Olsen. Zach has been working as a driver and tour guide since the Fall season of 2015, and has been with the company since 2013. His main focus is engineering tech, which consists of IT, networking, and electrical work. Zach is originally from Stevens Point, Wisconsin and gained interest of the Ducks at a young age. Zach’s older brother used be a driver for the Ducks, and as a kid, Zach would ride along on his older brother’s Duck Tours. Zach is an avid fan of all different vehicles, so being able to drive a 1940’s Dells Army Duck for work is an awesome experience for him. You might have Zach as a driver the next time you visit Dells Army Ducks. Plan your Duck tour today!

Dells Army Ducks are a Family-Owned Business

In 1946, a gentleman named Melvin Flath first brought the Ducks to Wisconsin Dells. He offered quality tours on both land and water to families visiting the area. 71 years and a few generations later, the Field Family continues to offer those quality tours to the next generations. Owner and Operator, Jason Field along with 7 other family members enjoy being able to work alongside each other to help other families create beautiful Wisconsin Dells memories.

Field’s family has been in the boat business since 1894! His great-grandfather, F.A. Field owned 2 paddle wheel boats, and offered tours on the Upper Wisconsin River. On your next Wisconsin Dells vacation, be sure to hop aboard a Dells Army Duck Tour and experience this family-run business for yourself!

The Path and Scenery of an Army Duck

Make a splash in both the Wisconsin River and Lake Delton aboard your Dells Army Duck Ride. Explore the natural history of Wisconsin Dells and see rock formations like no other. The beautiful sandstone cliffs, some over 100 feet high, date back to the last ice age over 15,000 years ago! On land, see indigenous plants, some specific to the area like the Fragrant fern. When the Duck cruises across Lake Delton, kids can have the opportunity to drive the amphibious vehicle! If you’re in to nature, landscape, water, lakes, rivers, cliffs, and gorges, then you should book your Duck Tour today! 

The Best Seats To Sit In On Your Dells Army Duck Ride!

Everyone wants to know the best seat to sit in when they hop aboard their Duck tour. Although every seat within a Dells Army Duck provides equal fun and excitement, there are a few seats that give you a different kind of experience. When you sit in the back few rows of your duck, you’re more than likely going to get a small splash on you upon entering and exiting the water! Although you won’t get completely soaked, you’ll feel very refreshed from the mist. The seats in the front and middle of the Duck are easier for spotting scenery along the river. Which do you prefer?

A travel tip would be to keep your items on your lap or your seat, as water may lightly flow among the floor of the boat. Each tour is different as far as how wet you might get and which part of the boat will experience a splash.

In summary, every seat is the best seat to sit in on a Dells Army Duck. Book your tour today and find out for yourself. 

History of DUKW Vehicles in the Dells

Right after WWII, a Milwaukee gentleman named Melvin H. Flath read about an auction out in California where they were auctioning off a surplus of trucks. He went out there, and to his surprise found the trucks to be amphibious vehicles and nothing that he had imagined. These vehicles were used during WWII to help transport goods and troops over land and water. After some thought, Melvin bought what is now popularly known as a DUKW vehicle, or DUCK!

He rode his DUCK back to Milwaukee and was at first made fun of for his bulky purchase. He installed some used Milwaukee bus seats in his DUCK and on Sundays, would take his family in Pewaukee Lake. He charged others 50 cents to ride in his DUCK as he’d splash in the water! At one point, someone mentioned to Melvin that he should take his DUCK to Wisconsin Dells, where everyday is Sunday!

He did the following week and in 1946, began giving one and a half hour tours of the Dells. Over 70 years later, the DUCK tours continue to impress visitors to Wisconsin Dells with their rich history, nature scenery, and a splashing good time!
