Instead of renting a boat we went for a Ride on the Ducks. These are amphibious WWII vehicles.
The duck ride is somewhat famous for making a rapid entrance into the water. Unfortunately due to flooding the lake is nearly over the top of the damn and they are not allowed to enter water as fast as normal because of trees hidden under the water. Once in the water we saw the Branson Belle leaving her dock. It was very impressive to see up close.
Our tour guide was a really good one and he let every single kid on board drive for a little bit. He even took the pics of the kiddos driving.
Here are Kathy and Ryan with our tour guide. He picked up on Kathy pretty quickly because he is a K-State grad and Phil was wearing a K-State shirt. He picked on Kathy the entire trip. It was a lot of fun.
