Alaska is BIG! When planning your trip allow enough time for the region(s) you want to see and the things you want to do. All you need to do is determine what type of activities and adventures top your must do list and choose the region(s) that offer those experiences.

Bering Sea Crab Fishermen's Tour

Join the Captain and crew of the Aleutian Ballad, a crab boat made famous on season 2 of the Deadliest Catch. Set out in the calm, protected waters of coastal Ketchikan and relax in the vessel’s heated and sheltered outdoor amphitheater as you explore the incredible scenery of Alaska. On deck, a skilled fishing crew will haul up crab pots and long lines from the depths, revealing amazing sea life including King crab, snow crab, shark, octopus, prawns, and rock fish. The catch is then placed into an on-deck tank for you to view and interact with. Throughout the entire tour you’ll hear stories of the men who have spent their lives working at sea. Common tour sights include an incredible bald eagle display, seals, sea lions, whales, and native Alaskan fishermen working the scenic coastline.
