Philadelphia's Lost Waterfront
Ride the Duck Ramp
Stop for a second. On your right, you'll see the ramp leading into the river used by the Ride the Ducks tourist operation. Amphibious vehicles take tourists around Philadelphia and then splash into the Delaware for a cruise on the river.
In 2010, a Ride the Ducks boat was run over by a barge pushed by a inattentive tugboat. The amphibious vehicle sank and two people died. The Delaware is a working river, and as such, is fraught with danger.
You can keep walking now.
