This is good news, I am glad to see them get this going..

I wondered in the past, why a foam filled Boat would not be available for this type of use, and here it is..

Hope it goes this year, and gets full support of the town and tourists..

“ Branson Duck Tours LLC is excited to announce the return of newer and safer amphibious bus tours to Branson, MO. We were heart broken by the tragedy in 2017, where questionable equipment and procedures cost the lives of 17 people. We were also disappointed that we would no longer be able to experience Branson on a unique duck tour. Duck tours have been a wonderful experience for tourists and a staple of Branson for decades.

After the tragedy, we no longer felt safe taking our families on DUWKs designed for war and built in 1946. The amazing Hydra-Terra was the safe solution we were looking for. It is the only state-of-the-art amphibious tour bus specifically designed and built for safe duck tours.

The Hydra-Terra has been a proven performer with successful operations in 27 countries around the world. The Hydra-Terra is the only Coast Guard approved “T” Vessel with revolutionary, positive-buoyancy foam-filled compartments.

The design has proven to be UNSINKABLE by the US Coast Guard. During Coast Guard testing, the drain plugs were removed from a Hydra-Terra and the engine room was fully flooded. The Hydra-Terra continued to float safely without any water entering the passenger compartment!

With this revolutionary equipment and new safety procedures, Branson Duck Tours is excited to announce we will begin offering safe duck tours in the Spring of 2021.”

Great news! Looking forward to seeing them on the lake.
I think the public will embrace them so long as they have a decent price tag and are operated efficiently.

I also hope it is not cost prohibitive.

Seems like so many of the newer attractions are very pricey, for no more than you get to see or get to do..

Anxious to see where they will be located and the circle they make and of course price..

looking at them they are not even clse to tye old militarybdesign, or the modified "new" design
They aren't even close to a land vehicle that can navigate the water.They look like a big boat on a trailer! A bigbboat with wheels, and running gear underneath!
Can't wait to go!
