The duck boats are heading back to Boston's roads and waters.

Boston Duck Tours will kick off its 2021 season Thursday at 10 a.m., coinciding with Opening Day at Fenway Park.

The company said its tours would kick off from its locations at the Prudential Center, the New England Aquarium and the Museum of Science.

"It's been a hell of year to say the least," Boston Duck Tours CEO Cindy Brown said in a statement Wednesday. "While we have suffered greatly due to COVID, we are eager to get back to giving the best tour in Boston."

Brown added that the company is working to recover from losing 92% of its business after the coronavirus pandemic began.

The amphibious vehicles are a fixture in Boston, where they have carried New England's sports teams through rolling rallies to celebrate championships.
