Bering Sea Crab Fishermen’s Excursion in Ketchikan, Alaska

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." But 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 Ketchikan 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 Ketchikan excursion 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 tour 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.

BEST TOUR EVER

We loved every minute on this tour and really have never had a better tour. Dave is so personable and made out trip extra special when he took a crab tooth out of the jaw of the crab and gave it to me. He and his wife spent about a half hour with us after the tour to just chat about common things. We KNOW this is a great tour for children as the children on our tour were amazed by all the thinks we did and saw. There is a lot of participation if you wish on this tour. We will be going on the Aleutian Ballad again in 2020. Can't wait!

I'm a big deadliest catch fan didn't know how my wife would like this tour. The short of itit is that she loved it as I did. The staff were very accommodating and the crew were very knowledgeable and funny. Saw everything from king crab to octopus and even eagles swooping down to get the fish the crew were throwing to the birds. LOVED it as my wife said it was the best tour we had on our trip
