Wildlife is everywhere in Alaska -- crabs, eagles, whales, octopus, sea lions, porpoise, wolf eels, sharks and seals are all frequently spotted on the Bering Sea Crab Fishermen tour. 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 Alaska's Inside Passage to witness firsthand the challenges commercial fishermen face. Marvel at the scenic beauty surrounding you 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 day's catch. The fascinating marine life is placed in an on-deck aquarium so everyone can get up close with these creatures. This engaging, educational and interactive experience is perfect for all ages. It is packed with stories and adventures shared by the men and women who risk their lives fishing the Bering Sea.
Suitable for guests using a wheelchair. 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. Dress warmly in layers with a wind- and waterproof outer layer; bring gloves, a scarf and a warm hat. Raincoats are provided if needed. Minimum age is 5 years.
