Wildlife is everywhere in Alaska! Crabs, eagles, whales, octopus, sea lions, porpoises, wolf eels, sharks and seals are all frequent visitors on the Bering Sea Crab Fishermen's Tour in Ketchikan.
Come aboard the Aleutian Ballad for the adventure of a lifetime! The Aleutian Ballad was made famous in season two of Discovery Channel's award-winning TV series "Deadliest Catch." There are no rough seas here! You will set out in the calm, protected waters of the Inside Passage to witness first-hand the amazing way of life of commercial fishermen. Marvel at the scenic beauty that surrounds you on this Ward Cove shore excursion from the comfort of the heated and sheltered stadium-style seating lower deck or the open-air top deck.
Watch as the skilled crew haul and set long lines, barrel pots, and huge 700 pound king crab pots to reveal the catch of the day. The amazing marine life is placed in an on deck aquarium so everyone can get close to these unique creatures of the sea. This fascinating, educational, and interactive experience is perfect for all ages and is packed with stories and adventures shared by the men and women who risk their lives fishing the Bering Sea.
Please Note: This excursion does NOT go out into the rough waters of the open ocean. It remains in the calm, protected waterways of the Inside Passage surrounding Ketchikan. Snacks are available for purchase on board.
