Wisconsin Dells Ducks Are Operational

Dells Advice on March 25th

The hints of nice weather we’ve had over the past couple of weeks have convinced the operators of the Original Wisconsin Ducks and the Dells Army Ducks to start offering tours for the 2009 season.  At this point in the year, they aren’t offering continuous tours as they typically do during the busy summer months.  The Original Wisconsin Ducks are running 4 tours a day at 11:00 A.M., 12:00 Noon, 2:00 P.M. and 4:00 P.M.  The Dells Army Ducks aren’t operating on a set schedule.  They’ll take any group of 6 or more out right away.  If your group has less than 6 people in it, you’ll need to wait until more people show up. 

Lake Delton still hasn’t gotten to its normal water level, so both ducks tour companies aren’t venturing into the lake yet.  Both ducks tours do include rides on the Wisconsin River, however.  The filling of Lake Delton is weather dependent, so the more rain the Wisconsin Dells area gets, the sooner it will be back to its normal water level.  When I spoke to Lake Delton Village Clerk  Kay Mackesey last month, she told me that they anticipated that the lake would be completely filled sometime in May.  The heavy rains that the Dells area has gotten this week certainly will help move the filling along.  Both ducks tours will take passengers in the area of the Lake Delton breach and over the new Highway A that was constructed after it was destroyed last June.

If you are planning on going on a Dells duck tour this spring, the best advice would be to call ahead.  The Original Wisconsin Ducks can be reached at 608-254-8751 and the Dells Army Ducks can be reached at 608-254-6080.

Channel 15 in Madison had a report recently on the opening of the Original Wisconsin Ducks and the status of the filling of Lake Delton.  To see the news report, click below.
